FanDuel was estimated to handle over 17 million bets with  its peak repacking 50,000 bets placed a second with 2 million users on its app through the course of the game. Betting was just as packed in Las Vegas with MGM Resorts breaking a company record for Super Bowl handle across its nine retail sportsbooks and the BetMGM app. DraftKings posted the largest bet placed with one bettor putting $1.68 million on the Chiefs which paid out $2.68 million. The American Gaming Association (AGA) projected that over 50.4 million U.S. citizens would place a total of $16 billion over the weekend, doubling last years estimate with the AGA estimating around $1 billion to wagered on unregulated or offshore sites, bookies, and social bets.
