Gambler Who Won $1.2M Off Tiger Woods' Masters Win Said He'd Been In Deep Debt Recent


"The gambler who placed an $85,000 wager on Tiger Woods winning the Masters ultimately winning $1.2 million says he was tens of thousands of dollars in debt as recently as four months ago.

James Adducci, 39, made the bet with William Hill at 14-1 odds last Tuesday, the company said. When Woods won the golf tournament on Sunday, the betting business said it turned into a $1,275,000 payout the largest golf-related payout in the company's history."

I don't think I've ever known a gambler who wasn't in debt.

That might be some, not all of the reason why they gamble ..to get out of debt.

Win big and you might really be hooked.

There's 3 slot machines at the gas station down the road and I see old people with hands full of scratch offs so it's pretty pervasive.

I like a sure thing. It's why I got married. It's why I go to work. Boring? Yeah sometimes but at least I don't lose my shirt

I love playing blackjack in Vegas. In fact we will be going there for a mini vaca this summer. Vegas is one of the only places I can relax. I can sit at a table for a few hours with no problem.

...and will be hundreds of thousands of dollars in debt as soon as four months from now.

At that level it's a sickness and winning a big payout is not a cure.

I'm curious how he came up with the $85,000 in four months from zippy. Strange story.

That "bet-on-your-phone" thing for Nevada residents is legal and completely insane if you've ever known a gambling addict.

Not totally related but there is a professional sports bettor on Jeopardy who is absolutely killing it.
Just won $131,127 today, 10 day total of $697,787. Holds the top 5 spots for single game record winnings.
