We just wrote the biggest check in sports betting history to Mattress Mack for $30,000,000.

Chief Operating Officer for Caesars Sportsbook betting app, Ken Fuchs, on Houston mattress store owner Jim “Mattress Mack” McIngvale’s big win.

Big Picture: "Mattress Mack" McIngvale won't be keeping all of it. He plans to use most of his winnings to fulfill a promotion to any customer who spent $3,000 at his store; he will refund them, and double their money back.

  • "Mattress Mack" bet a total of $10 million on the Astros winning the World Series. He first placed a bet in May for $3 million using Caesars Sportbook's app. He then added on $7 million more throughout the summer through other sportsbooks, and his average payout odds of +750 won him around $75 million on Saturday.
