The sports betting app also saw a record number of customers place bets on the Super bowl.
US.- The Oregon Lottery has reported that its Scoreboard app was used to place $3.5m worth of bets on the 55th Super Bowl.
The sports betting app saw a record 23,000 customers place bets. With many customers placing more than one bet, 150,000 wagers were made on the app, with an average wager of $23.
Scoreboard offered many prop bets, ranging from the number of yards specific players would advance to defensive touchdowns.
The coin toss prop alone accounted for 3,500 bets placed on the app. A further 4,000 wagers were made on the colour of the Gatorade poured on the winning coach.
While Scoreboard reported a rise in its handle last year, that didn’t equate to higher revenues.
The lottery’s sportsbook product manager, Tony Gallenbeck, said: “For the big game, there were more than 23,000 unique Scoreboard players.
“Players took home the largest share of dollars wagered, translating to nearly $700,000 in revenue generated by Scoreboard. The game also prompted nearly 1,500 new registrations on Sunday alone.
Oregon Lottery Director, Barry Pack, added: “With the pandemic, it’s been a challenging year for all of us. Events like the Super Bowl provide not only a fun distraction, but also keeps sports betting dollars in Oregon for important state programs.”
