He bet on one match and won 300 million PLN.  Record win in football betting

American businessman Jim McKingville bet this spring that the Houston Astros would win the Major League Baseball. The 71-year-old invested, just for fun, $10 million to defeat the Houston Astros by defeating the Philadelphia Phillies in the final. In total, the American could win $75 million, which would have meant the biggest win ever. Houston beat Philadelphia 4-2 and could celebrate their second league title in history.

The Houston Astros’ win in the Major League Baseball Final also provided a record boost to Jim McKingville. “Last week has been so special that words are short,” McKingville wrote on social media. The businessman reported in an interview with FOX that most of the winnings will be spent on payments to customers of the Gallery Furniture chain. The Astros did all the work, all I did was bet money American added.

Jim McIngvale has prepared a special offer for customers of the furniture chain. Those who purchase items over $5,000 will receive a refund and free furniture if the Houston Astros win. McIngvale had something to risk as his fortune was estimated at $300 million, and he was also very successful in business. McKingville also worked in charity, for example by turning stores into shelters after people had to flee land ravaged by Hurricane Harvey.

This isn’t the first time Jim McIngvale has invested a huge amount of money in athletics, as he made $10 million in April with an NCAA win in Kansas. There have also been failures – like losing $10 million when he bet on the Cincinnati Bengals match With the Los Angeles Rams in the Superbowl (the Rams won 23:20). The 71-year-old was invited by the Houston Astros when they won the title in 2017 and went to the White House party with the President Donald trump card. Then McIngvale bet on Houston and got $8 million.
