Sean Perry Loses Massive $1.1M Super Bowl Bet on the 49ers

The poker pro who transitioned to sports betting lost the hefty wager after the Kansas City Chiefs won the big game last week

Sean Perry, a professional poker player who turned to sports betting, placed one of the biggest bets on this year’s Super Bowl. Last week, ahead of the big game that saw the Kansas City Chiefs clash with the San Francisco 49ers, the seasoned bettor published a receipt on social media after placing a massive $1.1 million bet.

Perry’s bet backed a win by the San Francisco 49ers, making the $1.1 million wager one of the biggest on Super Bowl LVIII. The massive wager was placed with Circa Sports, with the seasoned bettor expecting a $1 million profit if his wager is correct. Regretfully, the Chiefs won the game against the 49ers after an overtime victory of 25-22.

The Chiefs’ win came despite them being 2-point underdogs, defying the odds. The win resulted in a $1.1 million loss for Perry. After the big game, he posted on social media the Circa Sports wagering receipt along with the text: “Apparently I lost the biggest ticket in Vegas last night.”

Losing Is a Part of Gambling

While many bettors may be furious after losing a million dollars, this was not the case for Perry. He posted a video after the game, explaining that it is exciting to see how humbling the community is. Perry highlighted the support of his fans, saying: “Guys, I promise you I’m going to be fine.”

The poker pro who transitioned to sports betting revealed that he is used to wagering millions on sports events “all the time.” According to Perry, it feels bad to lose $1 million dollars. Yet, he added that for the last month, he was able to accumulate $4 million in winnings from sports wagers, adding that he will continue to place bets, stay focused and close a successful year. Speaking about sports betting, Perry said that it is a gambling activity like any other, meaning that there are no guarantees.

So, yes, losing $1 million dollars s***s, but it happens and I know that’s part of gambling. I’m not going to be here and tell you that every bet is guaranteed to win,

explained Sean Perry

Besides making money from sports wagers, Perry currently offers different packages for sports bettors that include picks.

Throughout his poker career, the poker pro who transitioned to sports betting has earned more than $6.8 million, data from the Hendon Mob reveals.
