| By Robert Fletcher
Americans are expected to wager approximately $7.61bn (£5.62bn/€6.66bn) on Super Bowl LVI this weekend, with some 31.4 million set to place a bet, according to the American Gaming Association (AGA).

Should the AGA’s forecast prove accurate, this amount would represent a 78% increase on the $3.33bn wagered by consumers on the 2021 National Football League championship game.

In terms of the number of people betting, this would be 35% higher than last year, with 45 million more Americans able to legally wager in their home state compared to Super Bowl LV.

This follows the launch of legal betting in Arizona, Connecticut, Louisiana, Maryland, North Carolina, North Dakota, South Dakota, Washington, Wisconsin and Wyoming since last year’s Super Bowl.
