The Super Bowl is still the biggest single day betting event for North American facing sportsbooks but in terms of overall revenue it’s now number two. The NCAA Basketball Tournament–better known as ‘March Madness’ is now the biggest overall revenue generator for bookmakers. The sportsbooks in the state of Nevada’s revenue numbers underscore this point. In March 2016, sportsbooks in the Silver State took $459 million in betting action. Of that amount $422 million was on basketball with over 70% of the action on college basketball. The first weekend of ‘March Madness’ is by far the biggest chunk of that figure and has become as big as the Super Bowl for hotels and casinos in Las Vegas.
