Punters win the battle of Boxing Day as bookies flounder

| 26.12.2016

Boxing Day 2016 proved to be a difficult one for the bookmakers with punters finishing well on top following a number of favourable results. 

The same day two years ago also handed us a bloody nose with a £10m payout the result of all the Premier League favourites winning.

And with eight of the most popular selections on today’s coupon all obliging, this Boxing Day also proved to be a tough one to bear.

Arsenal, Chelsea, Manchester United, Aston Villa, Sheffield United, Bolton, Rochdale and Manchester City all won.

That was good news for many Ladbrokes customers with one plucky punter taking home nearly two grand from a quid…

Meanwhile, two more #BookieBashing heroes were left celebrating at the final whistle.

One customer placed a £10 10-fold which won £5,389.56. Arsenal, Burnley, Chelsea, Everton, Man United, West Ham, Aston Villa, Wolves, Bolton and Millwall were the heroic teams involved while elsewhere we saw a £9 9-fold return £4,730.33.

However, these are just a few of the incredible stories we’ve seen. Up and down the land we’ve been forced to marvel at punting geniuses.

Check this out…

League Two Plymouth were leading Wycombe 3-2 at home in a delayed encounter. But rather than wait even longer for the result to come in, the aforementioned canny clairvoyant took their profit and ran before the Chairboys netted a late equaliser.
