Paddy Power has once again managed to raise eyebrows with their latest publicity stunt. They have decided to pay out €275.000 on the entirety of Floyd Mayweather bets on what many experts are claiming could be a repeat of the recent Hillary Clinton disaster. No matter what, this payout is significantly smaller compared to a projected Conor McGregor win, as the clear majority of punters are backing the Irishman to win the Money Fight.
A Paddy Power spokesman went on to say: “We’re spinning the roulette wheel a bit here – as getting it wrong would see a serious Mac Attack on our bank balance. But, when you’re backing Mayweather, you’ve basically covered the whole board anyway. Patriotism aside, we are paying out early on a Mayweather victory – because we checked, and only one of them is a boxer. We always bet on black.”
Although Floyd Mayweather Jr's odds have drastically increased during the last months (from 1/20 to 1/4) he still remains the clear favorite on the Las Vegas fight on August 26. As things stand, the largest Mayweather bet placed on any sportsbook or casino, amounts to $880.000 and could not have originated anywhere else but the United States. If the bet does come through, the lucky punter will win $160.000.

Paddy is the best example of “united we stand” in betting business, as they started as a merger of all Irish bookies, who expanded in many countries and eventually merged with Betfair. Nowadays Paddy’s popularity is exceeding the British Isles, their main area of interest. They’re one of the first bookmakers who took advantage of odds as a commercial campaign, offering odds on bizarre events to attract publicity. Their services could be complete if they added an Asian Handicap option to their great number of alternative betting selections. They still offer their website only in English, by choice.
