13 million dollars.
That’s how much a Houston furniture mogul says he lost on World Series bets.
And Jim “Mattress Mack” Mcingvale says he’d do it again.
The Houston Astros lost six to two to the Washington Nationals on Wednesday night.
“Mattress Mack” placed several bets on the Astros throughout several states during their playoff run.
He says he’s not a big gambler — the bets were an insurance policy to cover promotions on his furniture.
“Mattress Mack” promised to give customers who spent more than 3,000 dollars on certain mattress purchases a full refund if the Astros won the World Series.
This isn’t the first time he’s ran the promotion, in 2017 he refunded $10-million when his Astros won it all.
