    AGA Survey Reveals Record Super Bowl Betting Numbers

    The year-on-year increase is 38% for the betting populace and 78% for the revenue.

    Some Survey Results

    The Super Bowl 56, which will be held at SoFi Stadium on the 14th of February, 2022, is America's largest sports event. The research carried out by the AGA on the upcoming Super Bowl was able to determine how players plan to bet and which team they would be betting on. According to the survey, more than 18.2 million bettors will wager online, at a retail sportsbook, or with bookies, signaling a year-on-year increase of 78%. 18.5 million Americans will bet with friends or as part of a pool, up 23% from last year, and those planning to bet on the game make up 18% of the total viewing populace.

    Bill Miller, AGA President, and CEO, said, "The results are clear: Americans have never been more interested in legal sports wagering. The growth of legal options across the country not only protects fans and the integrity of games and bets but also puts illegal operators on notice that their time is limited."

    Other estimates show that about 41% of bettors recall responsible gaming advertisements in the past year, a significant 12% increase from 2020. This highlights the industry's commitment to promoting responsible gaming and is a nod to the AGA's recently launched 'Have A Game Plan' campaign.
