Lucky customer N.H. -whose identity and location are protected for confidentiality reasons-, just received a US$ 129,000 payout for his 12-team parlay winnings at BookMaker.com.

With over 20 years in the business, the leading online sportsbook shows very few records of customers risking so little money in a very complex play, to get as much as 2,000 times the investment in return.  “We are pleased to pay N.H. all of his winnings and acknowledge his talent in making such a combination that we’re sure he’ll find useful this time of the year,” said Mickey Richardson, CEO of BookMaker.com.

N.H. bet on NBA, NHL, CBB and NFL games and totals, never thinking he’d win. “Now I will be able to close this year free of debt and putting my kids through college,” he explained. “My secret was a combination of an extensive amount of research online plus the fact that I know my teams very well.”

“All of the BookMaker.com staff, from the clerk who took N.H.’s bet to me, congratulates him for his accomplishment. Only an outlet with our stability and leadership in the business would be happy for an unlikely event like this to happen,” Richardson added.

NFL        New England +5
