Guy Places $100 Bet While Blackout Drunk, Wins $26,000
A guy from Minnesota, Derek Bergee was in Vegas last week. And like most people, he drank and did some gambling. So that's not the interesting part of the story. This is...
Bergee was hanging at the Planet Hollywood Casino, and drank so much that he blacked out. But he was still up at 7am and wanted to do some gambling. So he placed $100 on a crazy parlay bet involving three different sporting events.
Two parts of the bet were on a huge underdog to beat the favorite in the NCAA hockey tournament. He bet they'd win, and placed another bet that the combined score would be six goals or less.
Another part of the parlay was he bet the Minnesota Timberwolves would beat the Golden State Warriors. And finally, he picked the Minnesota Wild to beat the Las Vegas Golden Knights in the NHL.
Needless to say, it was a good day for Minnesota sports because he hit on every part of the bet. So he went from $100, to $26,000!
After he placed the bet, he went back to his hotel and fell asleep, missing all the games he'd bet on. When he woke up, he didn't even remember placing the bet.
According to the casino, it's the biggest four-leg parlay win they've ever had.
