In 2017, with the fervor of the Super Bowl and the frenzy of March Madness fueling their enterprise, Philadelphia mobster Louis “Sheep” Barretta and his crew deftly handled over 469 wagers in just two exhilarating weeks, raking in a jaw-dropping $78,000. But Barretta’s notoriety didn’t come without a price; having already tasted the bitter sting of justice once before, he knew the risks all too well. Yet, undeterred by past convictions, these daring mobsters didn’t just stop at bets—they flexed their muscle, issuing loans with ruthless interest rates soaring as high as 400% and keeping their clients in line with chilling threats, ensuring that in their world, the stakes were always sky-high.
