The bet was made on bet365 from ppg2012 on Instagram, with a whopping $3520 stake.
With Argentina priced at 11/2 (+550) and the Kansas City Chiefs to win the Super Bowl at 17/4 (+425).
In a breath-taking climax to the 2023 NFL campaign, bet365 customers were celebrating along with Patrick Mahomes and his teammates following numerous boosts, offers and promotions landing throughout the event.
bet365’s Steve Freeth commented: “Both teams scoring at least 35 points for the first time in history was never going to end well for us and we’ve taken a hammering – without doubt, our worst ever Super Bowl result by some margin.”
Ahead of the game, the Chiefs were seen by many as slight underdogs, and who trailed for much of the game in Phoenix.
Heading into the final quarter the Chiefs were down 27-21 but Kansas City fans would not have written them off with Patrick Mahomes at the fore.
Mahomes and veteran coach Andy Reid orchestrated a 38-35 comeback win over the Eagles in front of 67,827 fans in Arizona.
And that was after an already tense final in the World Cup in Qatar that would have made this bettor sweat from the first leg of the parlay.
After a month of football on the biggest sporting stage Argentina finally made it to the final, but squandered a 2-0 lead to see France take it to extra-time.
Argentina led again thanks to another goal from Lionel Messi but Kylian Mbappe always had a response.
The Frenchman netted a 118th minute penalty to take the 2022 World Cup final to a penalty shoot-out.
Where Argentina emerged victorious at the Lusail Stadium on December 18, well before the NFL season was close to concluding in Arizona.
Seven figure payout in the first quarter alone!
With the full cost to the brand still being added up, it’s fair to say that Super Bowl 57 was a win for Kansas fans and bet365 customers around the world.
Freeth added: “Travis Kelce to Score a TD Anytime was Super Boosted from 4/5 to 6/4 and his legions of backers didn’t have long to wait, setting the tone for the night with a seven figure payout in the first quarter.”
bet365 have already made the Chiefs the 11/2 favourites for next season’s Super Bowl, with the Bills (13/2) and the 49ers (13/2) both predicted to feature heavily in the post-season playoffs.
