Bettors in Nevada wagered more than $153 million on Super Bowl LVII this year, according to new figures from state gaming regulators.

That betting total is the fourth-highest figure posted in the last decade, per the Nevada Gaming Control Board.

It's also a drop of more than $26 million from a year ago, when sportsbooks in the state took a record $179.8 million on the big game between the Los Angeles Rams and Cincinnati Bengals.

While the Kansas City Chiefs emerged victorious on Sunday, sportsbook operators also had a less successful night than initially thought. 

On Wednesday, Feb. 15, the Gaming Control Board said win amounts were incorrectly reported for the past two Super Bowls, which resulted in monetary wins and win percentages being overstated.

Actual figures for this year's game were about $5.46 million for the monetary win and a 3.6% win percentage. That's a change from the originally reported win of $11.3 million and hold percentage of 7.4%. 

Last year's big game, Super Bowl LVI, resulted in a win of $11.06 million and a win percentage of 6.2%.

"Historically, the Board’s press release is provided as a courtesy to interested parties for informational purposes only," the Gaming Control Board said Wednesday. "Due to the fact that figures are unaudited, the annual releases do not represent information the Board actually collects monthly from Nevada Gaming Commission tax returns, which are then thoroughly audited by Board staff."

Nationwide, more than 50 million people were expected to bet about $16 billion on this year's big game, according to the American Gaming Association.
