We won’t lie, at Paddy Power we have a bit of a sore head this morning and it’s not from the drink or staying up late to watch Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor duke it out.
To be honest, we’ve been left a little punch-drunk last night as punters landed a right blow thanks to Mayweather’s victory in the 10th round.
Yes, any customers who piled into our Crowd Powered Price probably woke up this afternoon with a smile on their face as they were in the money thanks to … well, Money.
That’s because over 30,000 Paddy Power punters managed to get Mayweather at 7/1 to win in Rounds 9-12 and when Floyd stopped McGregor in the 10th period, we didn’t lay a glove on them as more than £1m went out the door.
Our Crowd Powered Price is so simple to understand you’d get it even after a few blows to the noggin. The more people that back our selected punt, the bigger the odds get for everyone.
That’s how our loyal punters profited last night, as the gamble started back at 4/1. However, just like Floyd Mayweather after the third round it grew in stature massively and once the notorious 30,000 mark was hit it rose to a punchy 7/1.
It may be a while before we drag ourselves of the canvas from this one. Congrats to all!
