You Win Some, You Lose Some: Astros Fall to Nationals: What This Game's Outcome Meant for History-Ma

- imagine having millions of- dollars on the line ... all - hinging - on your favorite baseball team- winning a game.

- - - - it's something jim mcingvale, - also known as "mattress mack," knows all too well and- experienced first hand as his - favorite team, the houston- astros, headed into game seven- of the world series last night.- well, his team lost, and with - - - - that millions of dollars he had- on the line slipped through his- fingers!- it's a story we've been - following, along with the - national media, - for several weeks now ... - starting here locally with his- initial 3.5-million-dollar wage- at d'iberville's- scarlet pearl casino on his - hometown astros, to win - the fall classic... back at the- start of the post-season.

- since that time... mr. mack has- pressed that bet several- times...- capped off by a 700-hundred-- thousand-dollar ticket just thi- week... - well, mattress mack lost- millions on last night's game a- the washington nationals pulled- off a 6-2 win over the houston- astros.

- it was certainly a nail biter,- as we found out last night at - the - scarlet pearl casino as the gam- played out on the big - screen...with fans from both- teams in the crowd, as well - as scarlet pearl's ceo luann- pappas.

- - "well, it's a mixed bag.

We cal it sophie's - choice, though.

And i think a - lot of people feel the same way- if you're going to do this- with your heart, you're going t- bet with mattress mack because- of what he- does.

I mean tonight, he's got- over 100 children with cancer a- the game tonight.

Last- night, it was over 100 veterans- at the game.

If i'm going to be- with my head or anyone- else's, you're going to say i - want to win the bet."

"it's very exciting.

It's very exciting because- the casino is the only one that- took this bet at the scarlet- pearl.

And i'm enjoying to be - in the company of the scarlet - pearl to watch it in action.- live."

"it's a lot of money.

It's almost hard to- imagine.

I'm a very small - bettor.

So it becomes hard to - even comprehend it.

So- we're hoping that no matter no- matter who wins, everybody- benefits and has a- - - - good time."

Also in the crowd.... tampa - resident carol gettig, who was- rooting for the nationals.- greg miranda, from new orleans,- was rooting for the - astros.

- a disappointing night for greg- miranda, and mattress mack, - when the nationals pulled off a- 6-2 win...- had the astros won... "mattress mack" would've taken home more than 15-million dollars...- including his orginial 6.2- - million....but he's proven to b- a good sport about it, saying - quote, "i would do this again tomorrow."
