Scarlet Pearl on World Series: ‘We Take Bets’
With the World Series in the books, so is the gambling saga, that is Jim McIngvale, better known as Mattress Mack. Had the Astros won the World Series, he would’ve walked away with more than $15,000,000 from the Scarlet Pearl, including the $6.2M he laid down, in wagers. But instead, The Pearl now gets to keep that $6.2M including the state’s largest ever sports bet, at $3.5M. For Scarlet Pearl CEO Luann Pappas, the decision was quite simple. Mattress Mack’s $3.5M ticket is also one of the largest ever recorded wagers in the history of sports betting.
