2019 Year in Review

Mattress Mack’s $1.5 million online wagers on the Astros to win the World Series was 2019’s largest single bet of the year at the FanDuel Sportsbook.

It also generated enormous publicity and, significantly for FanDuel, did not have to be paid out, because the Washington Nationals won their first-ever championship.

11/25 marked the FanDuel Sportsbook’s largest parlay payout of 2019. A Customer placed $200 on a 15-leg parlay across NFL/ NBA and NHL Money Lines, which paid $229,276.50.
