Mattress Mack’s new venture is March Madness after making bets in football and baseball million-dollar.
To win the NCAA tournament on Houston Cougars, Jim Mclngvale put $1 million wagers with DraftKings.
The sports betting and technology company based in Boston has taken a seven-figure bet which is the largest college basketball wager, a DraftKings representative told that.
Sports betting is not legal in Texas sports, and Mclngvale flew from his indigenous Texas. To place the bet, Mclngvale flew to Colorado. In Black Hawk, Mardi Gras Casino and DraftKings have the partnership. A mobile wagering app is available; moreover, a retail sportsbook also sports by it.
To win the world series in Las Vegas, Mclngvale placed a large sum wager on the Houston Astros in 2017 and gained national fame. For his wholesale business, the stakes acted as a fence.
He offered during the baseball season that the customer would get the full refunds if he spent over $3000 and if the championship won by the Astros.
Last month, the headlines again created by Mclngvale when #3.5 million plunked down on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. In the super Bowl, LV gets 3.5 points. Those Bucs win, and he has a network of more than $2.7 million. Now, he is racing with the Cougars.
In March Madness, anything can take place; we all know it. To take the national title to Texas, he is trying hard in Houston and ending with DraftKings willing to gamble million dollars.
A successful horse race owner was Mclngvale. In 1,249 races, $8.9 million earned by his horses. Several graded stakes victories included in the 189 wins. Breeders’ Cup Sprint with Runhappy also had in it.
