The NFL season is under way and always brings dollars into the casinos in Las Vegas. This year is no different. As expected sportsbooks were packed on Sunday, but it seems as if people were betting a little more than in recent history.
“We might have found the only thing that is recession proof and that’s the NFL,” said Jay Kornegay. Hilton Sports Book Executive Director Jay Kornegay admits he was surprised to see a packed house.
“I was very surprised this morning when I got in here at 9 o’ clock there was a line 10-15 deep at the minimum $1000 bets,” said Frank Nein. Nein, a diehard football fan just like the others who showed up Sunday morning, say they wouldn’t miss the start of the season for anything. And betting makes it all that more interesting to watch.
“Las Vegas benefits from the football season including taxi cab drivers, bartenders, restaurants everyone benefits from the NFL,” said Kornegay. This is the second busiest weekend for sports book following Super bowl Sunday.
