Christmas came early for a lucky BetVictor customer over the weekend, the lucky punter won over £223,000 from a 20-fold football accumulator.
The 26 year-old BetVictor customer from Suffolk won £ 223,145.65 from a £5 bet at odds of 41,548/1.
On top of his initial winnings, the punter was paid an additional £15,405.14 as part of BetVictor’s ongoing Price Promise concession, which gives customers the difference in cash if they would have won more with a competitor.
The bet began midweek and ended with Spurs coming from behind to beat Burnley at White Hart Lane on Sunday.
BetVictor Spokesperson Charlie McCann said: “Christmas has certainly come early for our young customer who has won a life-changing amount of money for a fiver. What a journey it was with no less than four of his Championship selections scoring late, late winners on Saturday. Lady Luck was certainly shining on him and we have never seen fortune quite like it.
“When Brighton missed a penalty at Loftus Road yesterday, or when Burnley took the lead at White Heart Lane, he may have thought his luck had finally run out, but some things are meant to be. This was one of those once-in-a-lifetime wins and we wish him the best of luck – not that he appears to need it!”
Some very late incidents were needed for the bet to go through, and the 26 year old must have been saving up his luck throughout the year. Reading scored a 92nd minute winner, Leeds scored in the 89th, there was a disputed penalty in Sheffield Wednesday’s fixture in the 94th whilst Brighton scored their winner in the 95th.
