(NEXSTAR) – The Houston Astros World Series victory was a big achievement for the team and the city, but for Houston furniture store owner Jim “Mattress Mack” McIngvale, it was especially gratifying.

According to Forbes, McIngvale bet $10 million on the Astros to win the World Series. Shortly after, the Astros won the series and McIngvale took home $75 million.

With the Astros winning their second World Series, McIngvale took to Twitter to show off the silver suitcase he made the bet. He also has took the time to thank the city of Houston, the Astros, his wife Linda and everyone else for supporting the team throughout the series.

“This past week has been especially… beyond words,” McIngvale said in a tweet. “An incident that was just me trying to defend my city, and our team galvanized the city. It’s beyond words my gratitude to all of you who always have my back. What can I say?

He also had the honor of throwing the first pitch before the start of Game 6, which he also tweeted.

The bet included $30 million from Caesars Sportsbook alone, which was the biggest payout in the history of sports betting in the United Statesdepending on the company.
