A sports bettor from Florida turned $500,000 into $6 million while betting on the Texans-Bengals game this past Sunday, resulting in one of the largest parlay payouts on record.

He had put down a four-leg parlay wager (a combination of multiple bets into a single wager) on the same game, which ended when Houston Texans’ Matt Ammendola successfully managed a 38-yard field goal in the fourth quarter.

His four bets were that the Texans would defeat the Cincinnati Bengals, that the game would go over 44.5 points, that Texans running back Devin Singletary would score a touchdown, and that Singletary would surpass 51.5 rushing yards.

The odds of the bet were +1,100 for a probability of 8.3 percent, according to MarketWatch.

The bettor used the Hard Rock Bet platform, which posted about the wager on X.

Hard Rock Digital senior director of communications Jon Chapper reportedly said:

“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. Access to legal sports betting has already been a game changer in Florida, where many are experiencing same game parlays and play-by-play markets for the first time.”

Sports betting was effectively banned in Florida for two years while the state battled legal challenges that alleged the practice went against the state constitution.

Mobile betting on sports is only available for Floridians through Hard Rock’s app. In-person betting will be introduced into several casinos in the state starting Dec. 7th according to the Seminole Tribe of Florida.

Since the U.S. Supreme Court struck down a 1992 federal ban on sports betting in 2018, about $265 billion has been gambled leading to gross revenue of $22 billion. As of November, 37 states and Washington, D.C. have legalized and regulated sports betting to some degree.
