Houston, Texas Millionaire Jim "Mattress Mack" McIngvale has gone all in on the Cincinnati Bengals to win the Super Bowl.

Who is Mattress Mack?

"Mattress Mack" is known not just as the owner of Gallery Furniture in Houston, but also an avid Houston Astros fan who has bet millions of dollars at a time on his favorite sports team. As many Texans know, however, here is so much more to Jim McIngvale than just sports betting.

His  philanthropy is legendary in the Houston area. He's not only the owner of three furniture stores in Houston, but he has donated millions of dollars to help Houstonians in need. His most recent charitable work involved serving more than 3,000 meals to those affected by Winter Storm Uri in February of 2021.

Largest Mobile Super Bowl Bet

With Super Bowl LVI coming up, "Mattress Mack" is back at it with the largest mobile Super Bet bet ever made. ESPN reports that "Mattress Mack" drove over the Texas state line and into a Louisiana gas station on Thursday, February 10 to place a mobile bet of $4,534,000 on the Cincinnati Bengals to beat the Los Angeles Rams.

Caesars Sportsbook confirmed it with this Tweet:



Go Big or Go Home

The $4,534,000 bet goes down as the largest Mobile wager of all time with the potential of a $7,707,800 payout if he wins.

Mack is no stranger to making large bets. He once bet $3 million on the Astros to win the World Series and won. He also bet $3.46 million on Tampa Bay to win last year's Super Bowl and won.

You Win Some, You Lose Some

Betting big can also lead to losing big. Mack lost a total of $4.7 million in football bets earlier this year when both the Alabama Crimson Tide lost the National Championship game and the Buffalo Bills beat the New England Patriots.

We shall see how the latest bet goes this Sunday.

Go Bengals!

Bet You Didn't Know: 10 Bizarre Texas Laws Still on the Books

Many states still have strange laws on the books that aren’t enforced or taken seriously anymore, and Texas is no exception.

Most of these laws are just funny now, but at one time, there was a valid (or at least somewhat valid) reason for them to exist.

Texas has plenty of strange rules and regulations that you could technically be prosecuted for if you violate them, since they've never been amended. Some of these are only for specific cities and not state-wide, but all of them are pretty odd!

Let's take a look at 10 of the weirdest ones in the Lone Star State.
