One Massachusetts sports bettor spent launch day counting up winnings after hitting a massive 12-leg college basketball parlay.
Using DraftKings Massachusetts, the bettor put $12 down and needed all 12 legs to hit in order to receive a pay day. Well, that’s exactly what happened. At +61918 odds, the winning bet paid out $7,442.15. We cannot stress how incredibly rare this parlay win was, and we cannot urge you strongly enough to not spend a lot of money on bets with these odds.
Still. Throwing a dozen bucks down and walking away with nearly $7,500 is a great day at the office.
This MA basketball fan wasted no time having a big day once online sports betting in Massachusetts went live last Friday.
It was a busy weekend in Massachusetts. Over the course of launch weekend March 10-12, 8.1 million GeoComply transactions took place in Massachusetts by 406,400 player accounts.
Six sportsbooks launched their mobile betting apps at 10 a.m. last Friday, and DraftKings Massachusetts was one of them.
After creating an account, this bettor cooked up a bet for the ages. Most of the parlay focused on moneyline bets, although a few spread bets were sprinkled in. Here were the 12 legs:
- Duke Moneyline
- Kansas -4.5
- Toledo Moneyline
- Iona Moneyline
- Howard -3.5
- Penn State Moneyline
- Memphis Moneyline
- Texas A&M Moneyline
- Kent State Moneyline
- Cincinnati Moneyline
- Marquette Moneyline
- UAB Moneyline
Massachusetts sports fans have plenty of March Madness bets to choose from, and parlays are one of them. While the success rate with 12-leg parlays is not great, this bettor made the most of it.
Other big DraftKings launch day wins in Massachusetts
Two other DraftKings MA users also had successful launch days.
One bettor wagered $66,000 on Rutgers +6.5 against Purdue at -110 odds. Rutgers may have lost the game 70-65, but they covered the 6.5-point spread, meaning this bettor walked away with a total payout of $126,000.
Another DraftKings user put $12,750 down on Alabama first-half moneyline against Mississippi State at -255 odds. When the Tide took a massive 41-21 lead into the locker room, the bet paid out a total of $17,750.
While these bettors had lucky days, we strongly advise against placing this type of money down on any sports bet.
