With all major American sports on hiatus until the spread of COVID-19 slows down and is contained, one sports bettor turned to Eastern Europe to find some action.

A Nevada gambler drilled a 10-team parlay in Ukrainian table tennis. The bettor wagered $50 on the William Hill mobile app and turned that small wager into $9,676.

According to the Las Vegas Review-Journal, the 10 selections were all favorites with odds ranging between -135 and -160 on the money line.

All brick-and-mortar sportsbooks in Nevada have been closed as a part of Gov. Steve Sisolak’s 30-day shutdown of nonessential businesses, which closed all casinos in the state. It left the iconic Las Vegas strip looking like a ghost town.

With major sports on pause and brick-and-mortar books closed, bettors are forced to bet online and on foreign sports until things return to normal.

The NHL, NBA, and MLB have not announced plans on when or if the suspended seasons will resume. The NFL draft is scheduled to take place on the Strip in a little more than three weeks. The draft is scheduled to run from April 23-25 at the Bellagio fountains, but if the shutdown is extended by Sisolak, it will likely be delayed.

In Clark County, the county that is home to Las Vegas, there are 753 cases of the disease. There have been 15 deaths so far, according to Johns Hopkins University.

I'm sure William Hill will find a way to screw the bettor out of his money.
