DraftKings (DRAFT) tells CNBC it recorded 300K mobile sportsbook apps bets on the Super Bowl in the state of New Jersey. DraftKings partners in New Jersey with Resorts Casino Hotel, owned by Mohegan Gaming & Entertainment.

FanDuel (OTC:PDYPF, OTCPK:PDYPY) says it took down 350K bets on the Super Bowl. The company has a partnership with Boyd Gaming (BYD +0.6%) that covers U.S. mobile sports bets.

Meanwhile, Vegas bookmakers reportedly took in about 10% more in volume last year, which could translate to additional ancillary revenue for MGM Resorts (MGM -0.8%), Wynn Resorts (WYNN -1.5%) and Caesars Entertainment (CZR -0.6%). The bookmakers also benefited from the small point total in the game on prop bets.
