A bettor at Hard Rock Sportsbook in Florida won $5.5 million on a $500,000 wager after the Texans beat the Bengals on Sunday in what may be the largest payout since online sports betting was legalized in 2018.

The +1100 wager needed the over at 45.5, Texans running back Devin Singletary to rush for 52 or more yards, Singletary to score and the Texans to win. Singletary finished with 150 yards and a TD. And the Texans hit a game-winning field goal as time expired to make the score 30-27, well over a 45.5 total.

Legalized sportsbooks typically employ stringent limits on how much a single person can wager on a single bet, dependent on prior play at the sportsbook. Generally speaking, it's difficult to get seven figures down on one wager — meaning, a win of $5.5 million is an anomaly. It's why this is perhaps the biggest win recorded since the U.S. Supreme Court sanctioned online sports betting.

The Texans had been roughly +6, +215 underdogs for their game in Cincinnati. But CJ Stroud all but solidified the Offensive Rookie of the Year Award with a 356-yard, one-touchdown performance.

The $5.5 million parlay was made just five days after online sports betting re-launched in the state of Florida. Hard Rock — owned by the Seminole Tribe — is the only online option in the state.

Earlier in the week, one Hard Rock Florida user placed more than $1.5 million on Kent State — sporting a 1-8 record — in a Wednesday game against Bowling Green. Kent State lost 49-19 and both the moneyline (a $426,000 wager at +325) and spread (a $1.12 million wager at +10.5, -115) bets lost.

A representative from Hard Rock confirmed the wagers were placed but would not state whether the Texans same game parlay and the Kent State wagers were placed by the same person, ESPN reported.
