Alright, saying this FanDuel user cashed the most insane bet of all time might be just a tinsy tiny bit of hyperbole. None the less, this bet was extremely improbably and equally as incredible.
Meet the man who just spent his Sunday turning $20 into $550,000
Jett Honig just had what was undoubtedly the best day of his life when, yes you read that correctly, he turned $20 in FanDuel credit into a life changing nearly $550,000.
Identified by his Instagram Handle, Jett seems to be a man of mystery. With zero posts, he has garnered a following of over 3500 including Noah Schnapp, who plays Will Byers, one of the stars of “Stranger Things” (season four out soon).
Now I’m not sure if maybe he wiped his page clean when he realized there would be people flocking to his profile, or if he has never posted on Instagram before. Regardless, I was surprised to see the lack of excitement and bragging that he just won a half million dollars risking no more than a typical trip to Subway.
The only form of addressing it at all was left in one Instagram story which simply stated the word “tuff”.
Maybe instead of worrying about appeasing the internet, he is just out celebrating, as he most certainly already called into work sick tomrrow.
In Case You Have Doubts
Now I get if you have doubts as to the validity of this bet. You’ve grown up on the internet, you see fake stuff go viral all time time. Luckily for us, the great Darren Rovell was there to quickly confirm the bet was real and had indeed been paid out.
How in the world did Jett do this? Is he a friend of Marty Mcfly? A modern day profit? Maybe he’s got a good friend whose a psychic and he snuck a peak into her crystal ball? I’ll never know how he did it, but one thing is almost certain, you only hit a 1-29,0000 bet once in your life time.
Enjoy it Jett! The rest of us will be out here tonight wishing we were you. Most of all, this guy.
