Mattress Mack makes sports betting history

7 Nov 2022

(PRESS RELEASE) -- Jim “Mattress Mack” McIngvale, the owner of Houston-based Gallery Furniture, made sports betting history over the weekend as the Houston Astros won the World Series. Mack won the largest payout on a single-sports bet in legalized sports wagering history of $30 million. The win stems from a bet placed with Caesars Sportsbook on 13 May 2022, of $3 million at 10/1. While this single payout is the largest in legal sports betting history, Mack had $10 million on the Astros in total to win $75 million.

“What can we say? We just wrote the biggest check in sports betting history to Mattress Mack for $30,000,000,” said Ken Fuchs, COO, Caesars Digital. “Would we do it all again? You bet. While Mack may have won this round on the field, we’re proud of how we teamed up to support first responders and military veterans in Houston, Philly, and Atlantic City. And to Mack – we tip our Astros cap – and remind him that he can now support his Texans and Rockets…both attractively priced at +100000 to win a championship. The Astros are also currently +550 to win next year’s Fall Classic.”
