NFL players, staff allowed to gamble once Super Bowl 2024 is over
The NFL instituted a strict no-gambling policy for active players ahead of Super Bowl 2024 in Las Vegas.
But once the Big Game is over, all bets are off.
NFL Network insider Tom Pelissero reported Wednesday that the league will allow Super Bowl players to gamble at casinos after Sundays game is over.
Non-Super Bowl players in Sin City “are permitted to play casino table games and participate in website or app gambling while on personal time,” per Pelissero.
Commissioner Roger Goodell has gone to great lengths to crack down on league and team employees who violate the NFLs sports betting policy.
The league forbids players from wagering on the NFL and league employees from wagering on any sports.
Goodell said this week that 13 players have been suspended and at least 25 league or team employees have been terminated for violating the gambling policy.
The NFL reissued its gambling policy to players, teams and league officials this week as they prepare for kickoff in the first Super Bowl in the gambling capital of the world.
We understand the risk, Goodell said in his annual state-of-the-league news conference on Monday. We did not make the decision. Ultimately the decision to legalize sports gambling was made by the Supreme Court. We have to adapt.
NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell waits for the start of a news conference ahead of Super Bowl LVIII at Allegiant Stadium. Getty ImagesChiefs head coach Andy Reid said this week that his team was reminded of the leagues gambling policy as soon as the team landed in Nevada.
We had the league security rep come in and talk to the guys right when we got here, I mean literally when we got here, and that was part of the conversation, was gambling, Reid said, according to Pro Football Talk. He made it very clear, restating the rules and regulations and temptations here, obviously, in Las Vegas. So that was addressed.
Chiefs and 49ers staff and players are staying at a hotel 25 miles away from the Las Vegas Strip in the lead-up to Super Bowl 2024, presumably to keep distractions at a minimum and keep both teams away from the bright lights of Sin City.
