Pennsylvania casinos get first crack at Super Bowl Sunday


The biggest day on the sports calender is arguably Sunday and with that involves money.

With sports gambling now legal in Pennsylvania, casinos across the state are bracing for their first crack at Super Bowl Sunday.

The Rivers Casino in Pittsburgh, now in their second full month of operation with a sportsbook, is expecting huge numbers according to Andre Barnabei, the VP of Slot Operations.

“We have 98 seats in our sportsbook, we have 15 80 inch TVs, and a 14 by 7 video wall,” Barnabei said.

“We added additional kiosks for our guest to be able to wager on and we’re actually opening a satellite sportsbook location at our players club where we’ll have six additional writer stations.”

An estimated 6.5 billion dollars is expected to be wagered for the game Sunday between the Patriots and the Rams according to multiple reports, and the casinos know who they’re rooting for.

“A majority of the people that have wagered here are on the Patriots, so as a casino we’re probably Rams fans this week,” Barnabei said.

The unique thing about the Sunday’s game is the prop bets that are associated with it. You can bet on who will win the Most Valuable Player, who will score the first touchdown, how many total turnovers, and even the winner of the coin toss.

Here is a full list of the props Rivers Casino is offering.
