An estimated $150 million worldwide changed hands as a result of the controversial final play in Monday night's NFL game between the Seattle Seahawks and Green Bay Packers.

That's according to an ESPN.com report.

As well, about $15 million in Las Vegas alone switched hands, the report said.

The Packers were favoured by 3.5 points, and would have covered that spread had the last-play Hail Mary pass into the end zone been ruled an interception. Green Bay would have won 12-7.

But replacement officials ruled that Seahawks wide receiver Golden Tate had simultaneous possession with Packers defensive back M.D. Jennings and, by rule, a tie goes to the offensive player.

Thus, Seattle won 14-12.
