Man Who Lost $13M Betting On The Houston Astros In World Series Says He’s Heartbroken

A man named Jim “Mattress Mack” McIngvale put millions on the line for Game 7 of the World Series between the Houston Astros and Washington Nationals. Confident that the Astros was going to take home the win, his team fell short and he lost a total of $13 million.

So how does he feel about this? Well, the Houston-based owner of the Gallery Furniture chain spoke to KPRC and said: “My heart is broken.” Houston losing the series also cost Gallery Furniture customers, since the 69-year-old promised to refund all those who spent more than $3,000 on mattresses or bases.

“The worst my customers got were great mattresses, the best would have been great, free mattresses,” McIngvale told KPRC after the loss. “My mattresses obviously had profit baked into them. I would do this again tomorrow — and I probably will. It’s fun to be part of the greatest story in gambling history.”

He went on to say,

“I wish the Astros had won because all the happy customers would tell their friends for the next 20 years about the mattress they got,” he added to Texas Sports Nation. “It’s all about the customers.”

Despite losing the big amount of money, McIngvale said he would definitely do it again.
