February 13, 2024 – 7:48 AM PST

(Reuters) – The value of bets placed in Nevada sportsbooks on this year’s Super Bowl in Las Vegas between the Kansas City Chiefs and San Francisco 49ers set a record, according to unaudited figures provided by the Nevada Gaming Control Board.


A total of $185.6 million was wagered across Nevada’s 182 sportsbooks, up from the $153.2 million wagered on last year’s Super Bowl and above the previous record of $179.8 million set in 2022, the data released late on Monday showed.

Nevada sportsbooks kept a combined $6.8 million from Super Bowl bets for a hold percentage of 3.7% compared with last year when they kept $4.3 million for a hold percentage of 2.8%.

The Chiefs, led by quarterback Patrick Mahomes, beat the 49ers 25-22 in overtime of the Super Bowl on Sunday to become the National Football League’s first repeat champions since the New England Patriots in February 2005.
