Super Bowl Sunday is upon us and this year it is about to witness even more bets placed on the live event. New York State is about to witness its very first Super Bowl allowing players to place wagers in a legal manner and participate in the overall madness that is this time of the year. Super Bowl LIV is about to attract in-person wagers at local commercial and tribal casino locations with projections for increased gaming revenue.
The past few months have seen a downwards progression when it comes to sports wagering and the revenue of the four Upstate New York casinos have been able to generate. Each month has marked a drop in the overall wagers places in-person and the reason for this is the relative inconvenience of making one’s way to a brick-and-mortar casino venue.

For some of them, this means a car drive to the nearest location accepting single-event sports wagers, a factor that has impacted the gaming revenue amassed since last summer. Now it is time for yet another Super Bowl event, a special period for people across the US. Expectations are that the sport swaggering revenue in Upstate New York casino locations would surge, a figure that would be reflected in the monthly report the New York State Gambling Commission issues.
In the grand scale of things, the US players are expected to wager some US$6.8 billion during this year’s Super Bowl, as for some of the states this would be the second sports event allowing wagers to be placed on it. This Sunday is about to bring the first game between Kansas City Chiefs and the San Francisco 49ers.
