Mattress Mack makes another $1 million sports bet

24 October 2019

(PRESS RELEASE) -- Today at the Scarlet Pearl Casino Resort, Jim “Mattress Mack” McIngvale placed another $1 million bet on the Houston Astros to win the 2019 World Series. This bet comes on the heels of his $3.5 million bet in early October at DraftKings at Scarlet Pearl Sportsbook.

Jim “Mattress Mack” McIngvale has made international headlines with his large wagers. DraftKings at
Scarlet Pearl Sportsbook was the only sportsbook to accept his $3.5 million bet.

“Scarlet Pearl has great hospitality, plus they will take big bets,” said McIngvale. “And those are some dynamite combinations.” McIngvale is originally from Starkville, MS. He currently owns Houston-based Gallery Furniture.

“Once again, we have proven that Scarlet Pearl is the nation’s new home for the biggest bets,” said Scarlet Pearl CEO LuAnn Pappas. “We’ll speak with any guest who wants to place a large bet, whether it’s in our sportsbook, on our tables, or at our slot machines. We don’t sweat the money.”

Scarlet Pearl has also accepted a $1 million wager on the American League to win the World Series. That ticket would collect $1.7 million with a win. These national headline-making bets are the largest single bets in Mississippi sportsbook history, with the $3.5 million wager being one of the nation’s largest bets ever.
