Ladbrokes punter turns £50 into £66k courtesy of THREE late goals in Europe
A Ladbrokes customer celebrated a sensational footy acca win earlier this week, turning £50 into a whopping £66k.
The online customer remarkably predicted the outcome of SEVENTEEN matches, guessing the results of 15, and correctly predicting both teams to score in two.
But the bet would’ve returned nothing had it not been for THREE late goals across Europe, the first coming in Germany, where SV Elversberg came from behind away at Sonnenhof Grossaspach in the 90th minute to win 2-1.
Elsewhere, East Fife’s Sean Brown netted a dramatic late winner against Forfar to keep the plucky punter’s bet alive, while an 88th minute consolation goal from Lincoln City’s Harry Anderson to make it 3-1 away at Charlton ensured the second Both Teams To Score leg of the ambitious acca landed.
Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: “Lady Luck was smiling on our plucky punter earlier this week, and then some. Three dramatic late goals – one being a mere consolation for Lincoln City – make this by far and away the best bet of the season as far as we’re concerned.”
