Ladbrokes punter wins big during the international break18th October 2018 / lee
The international break may turn off some punters, but while the recent friendly matches and Nations League stuff was going on, there was plenty of lower league action in England and Scotland going on.
One Ladbrokes punter from Dundee landed a big £84,000 return from a seven-fold accumulator during the recent international break. All of the selections were Match Outright & Both Teams To Score selections.
That’s really pushing things to a difficult level. The teams backed for a win across the bets was Portsmouth, Colchester United, Newport County, Northampton Town, Solihull Moors, Dundee United and Elgin City.
All of the matches were from 3 pm selections and nearing the conclusion of the action, only five of the seven selections were winning. But Andy Williams netted a 97th winner for Northampton, while Newport scored even later in the 98th minute to give the punter the win.
The better scooped a grand total of £84,843.73 from the £5 stake.
Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: “It was very much a weekend for favourite-backers in the lower leagues of football across the UK and while plenty of accas landed, this has to be the biggest and best we’ve seen for some time.”
