DraftKings took its largest parlay bet ever on Tuesday, when a bettor wagered $3 million on a three-teamer.

The parlay relies on the Green Bay Packers winning the NFC North, the Georgia Bulldogs winning three SEC East and Alabama winning the SEC West.

If all three of those things happen, this bettor will profit $5,579,671.

Details about the bettor were not immediately available, though The Action Network has verified the bet through two screenshots. The wager was placed on Tuesday at 10:49 a.m. and was split into two separate tickets: one with a risk amount of $72,490.57 and the other for $2,927,509.43, which totals $3 million exactly.

The Packers are currently 4-0 and hold a one-game lead over the Bears in the NFC North. Alabama is the clear front-runner in the SEC West, with Auburn, LSU and Texas A&M being the other contenders. Georgia probably has the toughest path to victory for this bettor: No. 4 Florida will be fierce competition for the Bulldogs in the SEC West and No. 14 Tennessee also looms at 2-0.

In addition to this being DraftKings’ largest parlay bet, it’s also the richest digital bet the company has ever taken. DraftKings’ mobile sportsbook is now legal in Illinois, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Colorado, Indiana, West Virginia, Iowa and New Hampshire.

This past weekend, one bettor turned a $2 million parlay bet into $1.1 million in profits at DraftKings when Florida (CFB), Tennessee (CFB) and the Rams (NFL) all won.

A different wager, risking $1.4 million to profit $532,319 on Over 42 (-263) in Jags-Bengals, also came through at DK on Sunday.

DraftKings would not comment on whether these three seven-figure bets were from the same customer.

Note: Always tread lightly when betting parlays, as they tend to be -EV bets over a long period of time.
