Vegas still made money on the Super Bowl but not as much as they could have if the Seahawks would have scored a TD and won the game.
Nevada sportsbooks won $3.2 million off $115.9 million wagered on the Super Bowl, according to numbers released by Nevada Gaming Control on Monday. But it could have been so much more.
MGM Resorts International, Nevada’s largest sportsbook operator, said a Seattle touchdown, instead of the interception, would have produced a million-dollar swing in favor of the house.
Avello said the goal-line interception also cost his shop seven figures and led to a net loss on the Super Bowl for the Wynn.
The Westgate SuperBook, Wynn, Caesars, William Hill and Stratosphere sportsbooks all said Patriots and the over was the worst-case scenario.
