RENO, Nev. - (KOLO) The Super Bowl is the busiest betting day of the year. And thanks to proposition bets, there are hundreds of ways to get in on the action.

"We put out about three hundred different prop bets," said Steve Mikkelson, Race and Sports Book Manager at the Atlantis. "Everything from the coin toss to will there be a score in the last three and a half minutes of the game."

You can wager on things like if the game will go into overtime, if there will be a successful 2-point conversion, and will at least one quarter be scoreless.

"We're always there to assist; we understand there are a lot of people coming out that have not made bets before," Mikkelson said. "It's all about having fun and if you have any questions, let us know."

Hundreds of people watch the game at the Atlantis Sports Book every year and most have some kind of stake in the game.

"It's a lot more fun when you wager on the game and add that excitement," Mikkelson said. "It's also a lot more fun to be footing for what you want so I say make bets on what you like."
