Bets Flying For Super Bowl XLVII


By Alexa Tieu

Jackpot, Nevada ( KMVT-TV / KTWT-TV ) The Super Bowl is days away and fans are getting ready for the biggest sporting event in the United States.

"You can bet on who's going to win the Super Bowl before the season even starts," says Brandon Smith, Director of Marketing and Player Development, Cactus Petes.

The bets are flying for Super Bowl 47, pitting the San Francisco 49ers against the Baltimore Ravens.

And, the Sports Book at Cactus Petes is ready to accommodate them all.

Smith says, "The Sports Book here is super friendly and easy going for people who know what they're doing and people who are brand new."

If you've never placed a bet before, you should know you don't have to just bet on the score or winner.

"There's literally thousands of prop bets you can make. Anything from the length of the National Anthem to who will win the coin toss," says Smith.

Ninety percent of bets are made before kick off with second half bets offered during half time.

"Not just can you bet for the over/under or winner, you can combine multiple bets on one ticket which could increase your overall win."

Betting on the game isn't the only thing drawing people to Jackpot. This year, a Super Bowl event will be open to the public for the first time.

Smith explains, "This event is open to everyone but you do have to be 21 or over to be in the casino for the event."

But which team is the favorite to win for people betting at Cactus Petes?

"A lot of people who like San Francisco 49ers have been making a lot of bets on them. That's been the favorite so far," says Smith.
