A Pennsylvania bettor cashed out nearly $1 million after hitting a remarkable 15-team, cross-sport parlay Thursday.
FanDuel Sportsbook showcased the $604 bet placed at Valley Forge Casino Resort that turned into a massive profit:

One of the craziest parlays you will EVER see…
A customer at @VFCasinoResort wagered $604 on a 15-team multi-sport parlay Thursday night and hit every leg for a MASSIVE payout of $998,453.52 🤯 https://t.co/gN8k3fUOfo
It’s a unique big parlay win because most of the teams were smallish favorites, with Texas—which was even in its rivalry clash with Texas Tech—also picked along with a couple spread choices.
Typically, a large-scale parlay card is littered with overwhelming favorites with odds of -300 or better sometimes combined with a couple long shots to help boost the payout.
Picking so many close games correctly is quite an accomplishment, but it wasn’t without some close calls.
For example, the NHL’s New York Islanders went to a shootout with the Boston Bruins. It was tied after two rounds before Anthony Beauvillier scored to give the Isles a 2-1 advantage. Semyon Varlamov then stopped Brad Marchand for the win—basically a $1 million save.
Meanwhile, the Longhorns only knocked off the Red Raiders by a single point, 67-66.
It’s always going to take a couple breaks to win a 15-team parlay, and this bettor caught them all Thursday.
