BetVictor World Cup odds competition hits new heights5th July 2018 / lee
There has been a competition running at online operator BetVictor based on the 2018 World Cup. It is their #TheMillionPoundBet competition which has a £1 million prize pot sitting on it. The prize money is there for the punter(s) who come up with the biggest-odds winning bet based on Russia 2018. Of course, this isn’t about finding huge odds in the regular markets, this has been a call to better creativity.
Punters at BetVictor have been turning to the operator’s PRICEITUP option where punters can create bets of their own from available options. Last week a punter from Scotland put themselves firmly in the driving seat for the prize money after landing a massive 12,721/1 odds success which had fired them to the top of the leaderboard.
That staggering bet was built in the final round of group stage matches when Brazil took on Serbia:
Brazil to win 2-0, Paulinho to score 1+ goals, Thiago Silva to score 1+ goals, Brazil Over 6.5 Corners, Serbia Over 2.5 cards, Nemanja Matic to be carded.
This was done through the PRICEITUP feature at odds of 12,721 and that punter had stuck a quid on the bet.
That table-topping win was a remarkable return that bettered the previous leaderboard leader by 3,000. At the time it looked as if could be the bet that could go all the way and win the top prize. However, something bigger was landed on the Uruguay v Portugal round of sixteen match up. Just when that 12,721/1 punter though that those odds couldn’t be beaten, along came this:
Uruguay to win 2-1, Uruguay Over 1.5 corners, Uruguay Under 2.5 corners, Portugal Over 9.5 corners, Portugal Under 10.5 corners, Uruguay under 0.5 cards.
Again this was a PRICEITUP Option but at 17,042/1 odds.
Punters will know just how hard it is to pull a correct score bet out of their hat on a given game, but this staggering wager also had called exactly two corners for Uruguay and exactly ten corners for Portugal. That is just staggering.
The Bet Victor #MillionPoundBet competition runs right through to the end of the tournament and you can check out full details of the promotion on their site.
