Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) – A sports bettor known as “Vegas Dave” has won $2.5 million after betting the Kansas City Royals would win the World Series.
Dave Oancea placed $100,000 in bets at various casinos. The Royals beat the New York Mets Sunday night to win the World Series.
Oancea plans to buy his parents a house.
“I’m going to buy them their dream home which means a lot to me because my parents supported me,” he said. “I have very, very, very great parents. They are my best friends. And I’m donating a lot to charity.”
Oancea already knows who is picking next year but it will be a much smaller bet.
