A bettor at a Mississippi casino turned a $900 football bet into a $131,200 win.

The Las Vegas Review Journal newspaper reports the unnamed gambler placed the bet at an MGM Resorts casino in Mississippi.

The bettor played eight games Thursday – four in college football and four in NFL preseason action.

The bet included Cincinnati, Tulane, Clemson (first half) and Texas A&M (first half) on the college side and the Bills, Dolphins, Falcons and Giants in NFL action.

MGM owns two casinos in Mississippi, Beau Rivage in Biloxi, Mississippi, and Gold Strike Tunica in Tunica, Mississippi. It was unclear at which casino the bet was made.
