Comments from the lucky winner

How would you feel if you won $60K with one buck? Our lucky winner, who wished to remain anonymous (apparently his friends would ask for too many betting tips) said this:

I was shocked and surprised as well. I'm not a big time gambler but I’m truly blessed. I bet just for fun and to make (watching) the games more interesting to watch. I honestly never would have thought $1 would turn into over 60k but I’m not complaining."

I wouldn't complain either.

What is a parlay bet?

A parlay bet is a type of a wager which combines the odds from many events in one lump, where each bet has to be a winning one for the whole parlay to pay off. The smallest number of bets in a parlay is two, whereas the highest number of bets that you can combine differs between sportsbooks.

The more bets you combine, the harder it is to hit a winning parlay; on the other hand, the more bets you combine, the higher the returns get too.
