Canada’s largest ever online sports prize pool up for grabs for the Super Bowl with the PlayNow.com $1 Million Super Pool

30/01/2017

For the first time ever, bettors in B.C. can test their Super Bowl know-how for a chance to win or share the $1 million Super Pool on PlayNow.com. This is the largest potential online sports grand prize of its kind ever offered in Canada.

To win the $1 million Super Pool, players have to correctly pick all 25 Super Bowl related outcomes on their pools card. The outcomes range from props such as the result of the coin toss, whether an interception will be thrown, to more traditional bets like the total points scored in the game and the winner of Super Bowl LI. In the event no one selects all 25 outcomes correctly, players with the most correct picks will win or share a jackpot generated by sales of the pool.

In addition to the pool, bettors can also wager on more than 300 prop and novelty bets related to the big showdown between The New England Patriots and The Atlanta Falcons. This includes which team will win the Vince Lombardi trophy this year. The Patriots are currently the favourites with just over 6/10 odds on the Money Line Special on PlayNow.com. A $10 bet for the Patriots to defeat the Falcons would return $16.10. The Falcons are currently at 5/4 odds.

The Super Bowl is the single biggest sports betting event in both B.C. and Canada. More than $430,000 was wagered in B.C. through BCLC last year on Super Bowl 50. Approximately $14.6 million dollars was wagered on the NFL on PlayNow.com and Sports Action during the 2015-16 season.

Through Sports Action and PlayNow.com, BCLC offers socially responsible gambling entertainment while generating income to benefit all British Columbians. Remember, play for fun, not to make money. For more information visit GameSense.ca.
