Mattress Mack places $500,000 sports bet at Beau Rivage

Mattress Mack, the winner of the largest sports gambling win of all time, is here on the Coast to place a half million dollar bet for the 2023 NCAA Basketball Championship.

Betting $500,000 on the University of Houston with 10 to 1 odds, Mack stands to win $5 million plus the $500,000 he bet today.

Twenty casino chips in increments of $25,000 were passed to sports betting cashiers. Fans and curious onlookers took pictures and shook hands with the million-dollar bettor.

Mack gladly cheered on the Houston Cougars as he walked through the casino floor holding up the $500,000 sports betting ticket. “I’m glad to be in Biloxi and glad to be back in my home state of Mississippi. My father played football on the last Mississippi State team to win the SEC championship way back in the late 1940s. So, I am glad to be here. I’m saying ‘go cougars’ win that national championship.”

Mattress Mack just won $75 million when the Houston Astros won the World Series, the largest sports gambling win in history.
