With the big game now in the books, the normally busy Super Bowl betting in Las Vegas was pretty quiet this year. Yet another victim of the Coronavirus pandemic.
Usually, the Super Bowl will bring somewhere near 300,000 visitors to Sin City and boost the Nevada economy upwards of $500 million, WITH $100 million coming from bets placed on the game. But with COVID still forcing closures, occupancy limits, and other restrictions on business Vegas is struggling at about 50% of normal capacity.
The state of Nevada remains under severe restrictions at 25% of capacity for many public venues. The losses this weekend could be as much as $100 million which would have translated to jobs, wages, and taxes generated to pay for critically important services.
