BetVictor confirm that customer strikes losing football bet but was able to cash out on the Newcastle v Aston Villa match
One lucky BetVictor customer received an early Christmas present when he Cashed Out £39,933.43 from a 20p losing bet on Saturday.
The lucky punter, in his 30s who wishes to remain anonymous, decided to Cash Out ahead of the last game of his 7-fold accumulator, Newcastle vs. Aston Villa, on Saturday – a great decision having wrongly predicted a Villa win at 16/5.
Thus the punter can celebrate the festive period £40,000 richer…from what was essentially a losing 20p bet!
BetVictor spokesperson Charlie McCann told bookies.com: “The lucky punter certainly had Saturday’s 3pm kick-offs shot to pieces successfully predicting Palace to win 2-1 at Stoke, Norwich to win at Man United, Bournemouth to win 2-1 at West Brom, Leicester to win & Both Teams To Score at Goodison, Spurs to win 2-0 at St Mary’s, and over 2.5 goals in the Chelsea vs. Sunderland game.
“Those selections were brilliant, but the decision to Cash Out our offer of nearly £40k ahead of Villa’s trip to St James’s Park was inspired, as the Midlands club never looked like taking all three points against Newcastle. What a Christmas present; £40,000 from a 20p losing bet!”
The £40k winning/losing bet was:
