New Jersey records over $140 million in Super Bowl 2022 betting

New Jersey’s stakes on this year’s Super Bowl totaled about $143.7 million, according to preliminary figures released by the Garden State gaming regulator.

The New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement (DGE) has published forward-looking statistics relating to last Sunday’s betting action in the Big Game.

Casinos in Atlantic City and New Jersey reported strong betting activity in Super Bowl LVI, showing a 22.4% increase from 2021 of $117.4 million.

Additionally, Garden State punters also fared better than they did in 2021, as New Jersey bookmakers posted about $7.8 million, down from last year’s $11.3 million. The total projected payout for sports betting was $135.9 million, up 28% from the $106.1 million in 2021.

These unaudited revenues include New Jersey’s 12 retail sportsbooks and 24 mobile sports betting apps.

Other states also recorded good numbers in Super Bowl betting.

New Jersey’s preliminary results come after Nevada reported a record $180 million in betting on this year’s Super Bowl, and give more credence to the pundits’ high pre-game expectations. Combined, the two states’ stakes total more than $320 million.

GeoComply also recorded 80 million transactions during the Big Game weekend, representing a 226% increase over last year.

On Sunday, February 13, the Los Angeles Rams won Super Bowl LVI in a tough game against the Cincinnati Bengals, which resulted in a score of 23-20.

The teams competed for the Vince Lombardi Trophy at the Rams’ home arena, SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, California.

During 2021, the US has seen a ‘surge’ of legal sports betting, both retail and online, with 30 states plus Washington DC currently allowing sports betting.
