The single largest sports betting event in the world kicks off February 7, 2016 as the Carolina Panthers take on the Denver Broncos in Super Bowl 50.

More bets are placed each year on the Super Bowl than on any other individual sports event.

BCLC offers more than 300 different bets on ‘Super Sunday’.

According to PlayNow.com, the Carolina Panthers are currently 4 point favourites to win Super Bowl 50. So far, the majority of British Columbians are putting their money on the Broncos on the Money Line as the outright winner.
PlayNow.com will have hundreds of bets available on Super Bowl 50 with more betting options to come as we get closer to Super Bowl Sunday.

Currently, PlayNow.com has Prop bets available including the first touchdown scorer of Super Bowl 50, where a $20 bet on Cam Newton of Carolina will return $180. As for Super Bowl 50 Most Valuable Player, odds are on Peyton Manning 2 to 1. Bettors can also put money on the colour of Gatorade that will be dumped on the winning coach – currently green is the long shot at odds of 7 to 1. For a full list of betting options, visit PlayNow.com.

It is estimated that $10 billion is wagered globally with over 200 million people placing bets on the game. Last year, players in B.C. wagered approximately $390,000 on Super Bowl 49 with 16,000 bets placed on PlayNow.com and through Sports Action at any lottery retailer.

Through Sports Action and PlayNow.com, BCLC offers safe, secure and socially responsible gambling entertainment to sports players while generating revenue to benefit all British Columbians.
