Punter defies 23,496/1 odds for big acca win23rd May 2019 / lee
A Paddy Power punter placed a bet back on May 12th, the final day of the 2018/19 Premier League season. The bet that had been played was a pretty optimistic 10 fold acca on the outcome of all ten Premier League games on the day.
It wasn’t until ten days later that the punter logged into their Paddy Power account to realise that they had scooped a whopping £117,485.16 from the wager.
There was some major foresight in the bet, which included a win for the relegated Cardiff away at Manchester United, a game the Bluebirds were heavy underdogs for. Cardiff got the final day success, their first win at Old Trafford since the 1950s.
The other key selections were Manchester City to win at Brighton to claim the premier League title, with Liverpool to beat Wolves at Anfield. The punter had correctly called wins for Arsenal, Crystal Palace, Newcastle and West Ham.
Along with that, they had also predicted draws in Leicester v Chelsea, Southampton v Huddersfield and Spurs v Everton.
Spokesman Paddy Power said: “Like finding a winning lottery ticket down the back of the sofa, this punter hadn’t realised he was over £117,000 richer from an accumulator he had on the last day of the season.
“He predicted the result of every game, including a loss for United against Cardiff, which in hindsight could’ve been the most obvious of the lot – but didn’t find out until 10 days after the event!”
