Lucky 13! Mammoth Footie Flutter Lands Dubliner Over €7,000
A savvy Dubliner took an unusual route to a small fortune at the weekend when a wager on football teams from around the world triggered a four-figure cash windfall when the teams all won.
The punter placed a €30 accumulator on 13 teams ranging from Dinamo Minsk (7/10) in Belarus to Bangkok Glass FC (7/10) in Thailand. Other teams included Ha Noi in Vietnam (1/5), Harbin Yiteng (2/11) in China and Flora Tallinn (1/3) in Estonia.
All sides were hot odds-on shots except Umea FC, a Swedish Division 2 side who beat IFK Ostersund 4-1 despite being outsiders at 5/2.
When all the results were in, all 13 selections had delivered the goods and the lucky Dub was able to log in and see their account boosted by a stunning total of €7,047.84.
