(HOUSTON, TX)– A prominent Houston businessman took a huge Super Bowl gamble and lost.
If you bet money on the Broncos, how much did you lose? A hundred bucks? A couple hundred?
Mattress Mack is out seven-million dollars.
With the Seahawks win, Jim Mcingvale will be refunding that much money to about one-thousand customers who took part in Gallery Furniture’s promotion. Those who bought at least six-thousand dollars’ worth of furniture and had it delivered before kickoff would get a full refund if the Seahawks beat the broncos. Well, that happened in a big way — and those lucky buyers now have free furniture to show for it. Mattress Mack says seeing those customers happy makes the promotion all worthwhile.
