- Beginning November 1, Ben Patz AKA Parlay Patz started his claim to fame trail with sports betting.
- Patz has won over a million dollars since his start with legalized sports betting.
- The Parlay King will be moving to the west coast and leaving his parlay days with William Hill Sportsbook behind him.
NEW YORK – Ben “Parlay Patz” Patz may be ending his sports betting endeavors on a hot streak at the end of the year.
If you haven’t heard of Parlay Patz, now dubbed the Parlay King, you’ve been missing out on quite the ride. In 38 days, the 23-year-old New Yorker has won $1,165,663 on 10 different parlay wagers.
This kind of winning at US sportsbooks is unprecedented which is why the young sports bettor quickly became a household name. But as 2019 comes to a close, so seems the legend of the Parlay King’s continued reign.
From Then To Now In The World Of Patz
Patz is a student at Columbia University and the Co-Founder and Chairman of Lakeworth Holdings LLC, a global investment company. This allowed him some breathing room to be able to place wagers in the manner in which he did.
He joined William Hill Sportsbook in October and began his path to big winnings in November when he started betting strictly on the moneyline for his parlays. All his wagers were done through William Hill’s mobile sports betting platform from a grocery store parking lot in New Jersey. New York, where Patz resides does not offer legal mobile wagers.
Since becoming a millionaire in what has been a whirlwind of sports bets, Patz has started enjoying the fruits of his labor. He bought into a timeshare in the British Virgin Islands and chartered a private plane for a mini-vacation for himself and some of his friends.
He’s also made other purchases, treating himself to the latest iPhone which makes sense as it’s kind of his “office” since he uses it for all of his parlaying ventures. But despite it all, Patz is not into wagering for the sake of wagering.
He can place bets or not, he does it for fun but he can give it up at any time and that time is now.
Patz will not be finishing his studies at Columbia, opting to move back to his hometown of Napa, California at the beginning of 2020.
Leaving New York and his bridge ride to New Jersey means Patz will also be leaving his parlaying days of 2019. He will continue to place wagers until his move if he finds anything of interest, though, as his new home of California has not yet legalized sports betting.
This isn’t the first time in his history with wagering that Patz has taken a break only to come back again. The question is, will he use an offshore sportsbook if he gets the itch as a Californian or will he trek to Nevada to place his parlays? Ending on a hot streak is something not often seen and Patz again shows he’s not only intelligent when it comes to sports betting, but knowing when to walk away as well. Either way, the legend of the Parlay King of 2019 will remain intact.
