The casino’s Jay Rood wouldn’t divulge the gambler’s name or the exact amount of the bet. He said the person is a repeat customer, and made a “multimillion-dollar” wager on the Eagles. ESPN noted that the amount is one of the biggest reported Vegas sports bets in recent history.
Meanwhile, sports handicapper and Pregame.com founder RJ Bell tweeted early Thursday that a gambler known as Sir Let It Ride had plunked down $3 million on the Eagles in Vegas and was looking to wager more.

Sir Let It Ride won $14 million on the World Series between the victorious Houston Astros and Los Angeles Dodgers, Sports Illustrated reported previously.
