Double Trouble – Punter Voids Winning Bet

Double Trouble - Punter Voids Winning Bet  An unlucky football fan managed to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory when he called contacted a bookmaker to cancel a £100 bet that he had intended to place just £10 on. The bet, which was at odds of 30-1, would’ve resulted in a cool £3000 profit, and so it’s sods law that after he successfully cancelled it, it went on to win.

 

The bet, which occured earlier in the year, was for both first scorer and result in a Rangers vs Fraserburgh game, and that was the eventual result. Upon winning, or rather losing on account that he voided the bet, the punter took to twitter to share his misfortunate with a wider audience:

£2 8-fold acca bags punter £20k

£2 8-fold acca bags punter £20k  Well £21k to be precise. A football fan with an ambitious eye decided to place a small £2 bet on an eight-fold football accumulator late last month. Many would see this as being a ‘pie in the sky’ type bet, on account that the punter opted for 8 x ‘to be winning at half-time’ bets, which is clearly something that’s difficult to get right that many times over.

However thanks in part to a last gasp goal (at 45 mins) by Billy Sharp against Wigan moments before the half time interval, everything slotted neatly into place for the lucky individual, winning him the sizeable sum of £21,224.72

Here are the eight parts of the punter’s acca:

 

Nottingham Forest (v Leeds) – 4/1

Peterborough (v Burton) – 5/2

Colchester (v Lincoln) – 27/10

Wrexham (v Chesterfield) – 13/5

AFC Fylde (v Maidenhead United) – 15/8

Newport County (v Morecambe)  – 31/20

Sunderland (v Southend) – 17/10

Sheffield United (v Wigan) – 13/10

 

TOTAL STAKE – £2

TOTAL RETURNS – £21,224.72
