More than 14,500 bets per second recorded ahead of Super Bowl

GeoComply has reported a 22.3% year-on-year increase in geolocation checks during Super Bowl LVIII weekend.

Last night (11 February), Kansas City Chiefs beat the San Francisco 49ers 25-22 to land their second consecutive Super Bowl. The game took place at Nevada’s Allegiant Stadium, with GeoComply carrying out checks on betting activity over the whole weekend.

Checks took place in US states where sports betting is legal, as well as the unincorporated territory of Puerto Rico. This does not include Florida, where the Seminole tribe launched online betting with Hard Rock Bet in November last year.

GeoComply says the increase in geolocation checks is positive for legal betting in the US. It says the rise underscores a shift towards a regulated, taxed and safe betting environment.

Industry slams NYT sports betting coverage

On Sunday, the New York Times (NYT) published an article on sports betting lobbying efforts, which has been criticised by industry trade groups and individuals as including “several mischaracterisations”.

Titled “Cigars, Booze, Money: How a Lobbying Blitz Made Sports Betting Ubiquitous”, the article makes the argument that the gambling sector “got their way with lawmakers after showering them with donations, gifts and dubious arguments”.

This assertion has been criticised by a number of US-based trade organisations, who pointed to the already stringent regulatory environment and the industry-wide commitments to responsible gaming.

Criticised by trade bodies

In a statement published on LinkedIn, the American Gaming Association (AGA) said that the NYT had made “several mischaracterisations” in the article, and emphasised that there is a high standard for obtaining gaming licences in the US.
