RENO, Nev. (MyNews4.com & KRNV) -- Super Bowl 48 may not have been as exciting as some fans anticipated, but it sure was enjoyable to watch for those who bet on it.

According to Bloomberg, the opening play, which resulted in a safety, paid on average 50-1. Atlantis Publicist Tracie Barnthouse says the Sports Book and the Super Bowl parties were packed, and fans who bet on the safety were just bewildered.

Three lucky fans at the Atlantis won $100,000 each when Seattle returned the opening kick of the second half for a touchdown. "shocked with happiness."

The official numbers are not in yet, but Jon Ralston reports that Nevada sports books took in nearly $120 million in Super Bowl wagers, and earned nearly $20 million in profit.
