This week’s casino news starts off with some news on the Super Bowl. The two governors of the two states that participated in the big game placed a bet on it. That goes to show how far sports betting has come in the United States.

Pennsylvania, Kansas Governors Gamble On The Super Bowl

Leaders from two states agreed upon a bet regarding the outcome of the most Super Bowl LVII. Laura Kelly, the governor of Kansas, and Josh Shapiro, the governor of Pennsylvania, decided to agree upon a wager. After all, the Kansas City Chiefs were taking on the Philadelphia Eagles in the biggest NFL game of the season.

The deal was reportedly involving food and not real money. If the Chiefs had won, which they did, Shapiro agreed to send Kelly soft pretzels, cheesesteaks, and mini-Eagles doughnuts. All of which would come from different places in the Philadelphia area. On the flip side, if the Eagles were to have won, Kelly would have to send steak and chocolate-covered sunflower seeds the other direction.

Kelly, in particular, has been crucial in promoting sports betting in Kansas. She was the first person to place a legal sports wager in the area, putting $15 on the Chiefs to win the Super Bowl. And lo and behold, that bet actually turned out to be a winning one. Regardless, she’s been a massive contributor to the growing market in Kansas, which is estimated to be netting $10 million annually in revenue. As for Pennsylvania, they have also legalized sports betting. Both governors wanted to bring attention and some action to the biggest football game of the year.
