Howard Stutz, a business and gaming reporter for the Las Vegas Review-Journal, talks with Robert Siegel about how the Super Bowl plays in Vegas.

Upwards of 300,000 people will attend the "event" in Las Vegas, perhaps more than the number of attendees in Phoenix for the actual game.

Casinos are hoping bettors will place $1 million on their tables on Super Bowl-related parlays alone, not to mention money spent on the usual games available in Las Vegas.
