The Astros are 2022 World Series Champions, and that means Jim “Mattress Mack” McIngvale has cashed $75 million in futures. The massive payday marks the largest win on a single outcome in sports betting history.
WynnBET is responsible for $12 million of that payout, as Mack placed a $1 million bet on the Astros to win it all at 12/1 odds. Mack made the wager back in May.
Houston beat the Philadelphia Phillies 4-2 in the series to win the title.
The deciding Game 6 was won 4-1, with the Astros scoring all six runs in the sixth inning. Yordan Alvarez hit a go-ahead three-run home run and Christian Vazquez added another with an RBI single.
Mack was sitting in the front row behind the Astros dugout enjoying the action. Congrats to Mack on the historic payday!
