Dubliner Lands Over €18,000 With Footie Acca After Last Minute Drama
Despite a bittersweet ending, a punter in the capital is toasting their football knowledge after a Saturday afternoon flutter landed a mega five-figure payout.
The anonymous customer placed a confident €50 accumulator in their local BoyleSports shop on seven results in the Saturday football action and their picks proved to be incisive.
By 5pm, six of the seven selections had landed, with Brighton drawing against Watford at 9/4, while Wolves (19/10), Brentford (20/21), Bristol City (23/20), Hull (6/4) and Sheffield Wednesday (13/10) all won. The Owls needed a last gasp, 90th minute winner against Ipswich to set up a nervous finish for the expectant Dubliner.
They were left waiting on Cardiff to beat Bournemouth in the evening kick-off and things were going to plan with Cardiff 1-0 ahead at half time.
With a cash-out offer of €18,267.49 with just 45 minutes remaining, their confidence started to wobble and they cashed out, securing their mega payout regardless of the result.
Cardiff scored shortly after the break and went on to win 2-0, meaning they could have walked away with a total of €37,534.98 had they sat it out.
