Sportsbooks Report That Betting Is Up This Year

KTVN | January 2019

With the NFL playoffs in full swing, casinos across the area are seeing an increase in numbers as people look to make some extra cash. Everything seems to be clicking for sportsbooks in the Reno area right now. “We’re pretty strong. Our numbers continue to climb. Especially in our in play wagering that allow people to bet while the game is in progress,” said William Hill Sportsbook Manager Teri Gray. “Just yesterday business was 15 percent up from what it was last year. So it’s looking really good,” said Peppermill Casino Director of Race and Sportsbook Terry Cox.

The post-season for football has kicked off. The AFC and NFC championship are next weekend and the Superbowl is just 3 weeks away. “When you place your bet it’s like you get to fly your team colors,” said sports betting enthusiast Rochard Shepherd. Shepherd bet on the New Orleans Saints this weekend. From the team jersey he wears, it's obvious the Saints are his team. But he's also putting money on other games. “Everyone has this competitive spirit and likes to say they want to be right. They’re willing to put money on the game to prove that they are right,” said Shepherd.
