Another gambler is hoping for a big win at a South Mississippi casino.
Following Jim McIngvale’s record-breaking $3.5 million bet last week on the Houston Astros to win the 2019 World Series, D’Iberville’s Scarlet Pearl Casino has accepted another seven figure wager. A $1-million bet was placed for the American League to win the World Series, which could yield a possible $1.7 million payout to the winner.

This week’s million dollar bet marks the second-largest single bet in Mississippi sportsbook history, and the second record-setting bet placed in the state within the last eight days.
News 25 was at the Scarlet Pearl Casino last week when McIngvale, better known as furniture chain store owner, “Mattress Mack,” placed that record-breaking $3.5 million bet on his favorite baseball team, the Astros…making history, and national news, as the largest sports wager made to date at a Mississippi casino.
Scarlet Pearl Casino Resort’s CEO Luann Pappas says the D’Iberville casino is the nation’s new home for the biggest bets, and that they’ll speak with any guest who wants to place a large bet, whether it’s in their casino’s sportsbook, on their tables, or at the slot machines, because they don’t sweat the money.”
There has been no official word yet on just who placed that second, history-making bet this week at the Scarlet Pearl Casino, but we will continue to provide the latest updates on these stories as they unfold.
