BetVictor are paying one customer £1,000,000 after they managed to land a 17,042/1 wager
It has been an eye-catching promotion throughout the 2018 World Cup, with BetVictor offering up a million quid to a customer who can come up with a winning bet at the biggest possible odds.
Many have tried in vain to land the cash although it was a customer punting on the match between Uruguay and Portugal that has managed to scoop the lot thanks to creating a winning bet that paid out at 17,042/1.
This promotion coincided with BetVictor launching their Bet Builder for the 2018 World Cup and the winning customer managed to piece together the following bet:
Uruguay to win 2-1
Uruguay Over 1.5 corners
Uruguay Under 2.5 corners
Portugal Over 9.5 corners
Portugal Under 10.5 corners
Uruguay Under 0.5 cards
Eoin Ryan, Head of Product at BetVictor, told bookies.com: “Paying £1,000,000 to a single BetVictor customer is the perfect conclusion to what has been an incredibly exciting and successful Million Pound Bet campaign.
“We wanted to bring excitement and thrills to our customers’ World Cup betting experience, encouraging them to make their best bet, and the Million Pound Bet certainly delivered that. We saw consistent buzz across social media and customers enjoyed the transparency afforded by our real-time leaderboards.”
Ryan added: “Our #PriceItUp Builder continues to have great momentum and we’re certainly looking to build on its success ahead to the start of the new Premier League season and other major sporting events going forward. The concept of #BestBetWins is one that we’re interested in developing further as the football season returns later this summer.”
BetVictor are regarded as one of the best bookmakers for betting on the Premier League, with this firm betting to tight competitive margins for every game.
