Impressive: Fan could win $75 million if the Houston Astros win the World Series

If he wins, it could represent the largest single payout anyone receives in the history of legal US gambling.

A baseball fan could win a staggering $75 million if the Houston Astros are crowned the 2022 World Series champions.

This is a man named Jim “Mattress Mack” McIngvale, who was in charge of betting $10 million dollars in favor of the Astros in several bookmakers.

If he wins, he could represent the largest single payout anyone receives in the history of legal gambling in the United States, according to information from the AP.

At Caesars Sportsbook he bet three million dollars at 10 to 1. This house would pay him $30 million dollars if he won.

“I am not afraid. I have a high tolerance for risk. If I lose there will always be another day“said the bettor while donating mattresses to military personnel and first responders at Harrah’s casino.

It’s worth noting that McIngvale has a long history of making big bets on the World Series, the NCAA Final Four and the Super Bowl.

He claims that gambling is a way to promote his mattress business in Houston. In fact, he claimed that if the Astros win the World Series he will pay back the people who bought the most expensive mattresses.
