The BBC News reports that Lancashire resident Kyle Jordan has hit a big £45,000 win via a six event football accumulator. The accumulator involved predicting the outcome of five matches and also that stipulated that both teams had to score in each match. The bet was looking good until his final match prediction of Everton winning against West Bromwich Albion. It looked to be in serious doubt after West Brom trailed 2-0 after 54 minutes of play. Miracle of miracles though and they pulled it back to win 3-2, with the last goal by Romelu Lukaku scored in the 84th minute.
The odds of Mr Jordan’s bet were a staggering 9,172-1 and the lucky William Hill punter pocketed £45,865 in total. He had the opportunity to ‘cash out’ before the final result too, but decided to let it ride instead, and what a ride it was!
“I was watching the game with my mate and my girlfriend and as Everton went 2-0 down, I thought that was it.
“But when the final whistle went we all started jumping around the room.” He said.
Mr Jordan intends to take his family on holiday with some of his winnings.
