In celebration of his historic sports betting win, Jim “Mattress Mack” McIngvale stopped by Caesars Palace on Thursday and was honored with his $30 million payout from Caesars Sportsbook – the largest win on a single sports bet in legalized sports wagering history.
Sean McBurney, Regional President of Caesars Entertainment, and David Grolman, SVP – Chief Retail Sportsbook Officer, Caesars Digital, presented Mack with his win, stemming from a bet placed on May 13 of $3 million at 10/1 for the Houston Astros to win the 2022 World Series.
“What can we say? We just wrote the biggest check in sports betting history to Mattress Mack for $30,000,000. Would we do it all again? You bet,” said Ken Fuchs, COO, Caesars Digital. “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.”
Having placed multiple big bets with Caesars, Mack now has more than 11.3 million Caesars Rewards points. These points can be redeemed for unbeatable Caesars Rewards experiences, including discounted getaways at Caesars destinations across the U.S., world-class culinary experiences, unrivaled entertainment, and more.
