MayMac Had Most Bets In Nevada History
While the fight between Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor may not break the records some in either camp thought they would heading into on August 26th, but they did beat a record that would be quite significant in the state of Nevada.
The fight which has alleged to have less than 4.4 million pay-per-view buys, and trailed Mayweather’s fight with Manny Pacquiao with a $55 million dollar gate, it did beat Pacquiao and Mayweather for most money wagered on a fight in Nevada history.
Michael Lawton of the Nevada Gaming Control Board estimated that,
“From the books we talked to, and that was about 90 percent of the books — there was in excess of $62 million wagered on that fight.”
That smashes the number of $50 million placed on the Pacquiao and Mayweather fight two years prior, and may hold that title for the foreseeable future.
