Plucky in-play punter lands £26k from sensational £8 16-fold

| 29.04.2019

One plucky in-play customer had a weekend to remember after turning £8.61 into a mighty £26k.

With just a couple of games remaining in the campaign, the online customer struck an ambitious in-play 16-fold with just minutes to go in Saturday’s three o’clock kick-offs to return £26,128.19.

But the customer has three last-gasp goals to thank – most notably two from Crewe Alexandra’s Charlie Kirk, who scored in the 87th and 89th minute to ensure a 4-3 victory for his side against Forest Green.

Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: “There’s still plenty to play for across the divisions and our latest plucky punter has proven just how profitable an in-play bet can be. Hats off to the customer, who no doubt has a new favourite player in the shape of Charlie Kirk!”
