A thrilling moment unfolded on Sunday when Houston Texans kicker Matt Ammendola lined up for a 38-yard field goal in the fourth quarter against the Cincinnati Bengals. Little did the crowd know, there was more than just the game on the line for one Florida bettor.
With an enormous $6 million wager resting on this kick, the tension was palpable. The bettor had initially staked $500,000 on a four-leg parlay wager, putting together multiple bets to maximize potential earnings. Such a bold move carried significant risk, but it was about to pay off in ways unimaginable.
The four legs of this same-game parlay were:
- Houston Texans to emerge victorious against the Cincinnati Bengals
- A total score exceeding 44.5 points for the Texans-Bengals match
- Texans running back Devin Singletary to score a touchdown
- Singletary to achieve over 51.5 rushing yards
As the field goal sailed gracefully through the uprights, the bettor’s heart must have skipped a beat. The Houston Texans secured the win, and in turn, our Florida gambler turned their $500,000 investment into a jaw-dropping $6 million profit – an astonishing gain of $5.5 million!
Now hailed as one of the highest parlay bet wins ever reported at a legal U.S. sportsbook, this anonymous bettor’s incredible fortune has captured attention nationwide. Although their identity remains unknown, one thing is clear: this individual possesses the confidence and expertise of a seasoned professional in the world of betting.
The excitement surrounding this six-million-dollar triumph has extended beyond the bettor themselves. The Hard Rock Bet platform in Florida, where the wager was placed, took to social media proclaiming, “Who else cooked us?” Clearly astounded by this historical victory.
Hard Rock Digital’s Senior Director of Communications, Jon Chapper, expressed his delight, stating, “The $6 million Same Game Parlay win puts an exclamation point on what has been an exciting first week of action for our early access players.” It is evident that legal sports betting has already had a transformative impact in Florida, introducing many to same game parlays and the thrill of play-by-play markets.
This remarkable achievement becomes even more awe-inspiring when we consider the odds. The bet had a staggering +1100 payout, carrying with it an implied probability of a mere 8.3%. Against all odds, this daring Florida bettor defied expectations and exemplified the magic of sports betting.
