Punter wins £56k after best cash out bet of the season
One of our punters last night turned £4.29 into over £56k with the best cash out bet of the season.
During half-time in the Manchester derby, the online customer correctly predicted United would go on to win the game 2-0 at 12/1 – and that was just one of his three correct score predictions, having also backed Chelsea to beat Everton 2-0 on Monday night at 13/2.
The punter, who wishes to remain anonymous, predicted the Bundesliga game between Arminia Bielefeld and Union Berlin would finish goalless at 13/2, while being bang on the money with the results of West Ham v Leeds and Athletic Bilbao v Granada, thanks to a 91st-minute winner for the home side.
But it was the Inter Milan v Atalanta game which had the plucky punter sweating on Monday night. Having already landed seven of his eight legs, he backed Inter to win 2-0 at 11/1 but opted to cash out to the cool sum of £56,532.52.
And he was right to do exactly that, as Inter failed to add to their tally, meaning had the customer have let the bet ride, he’d have won nothing.
Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: “In-play bets, correct scores, last-minute goals and the savviest cash out we’ve seen all season, this bet really did have it all.”
