PIC: Dublin punter set to claim just under €25,000 after this €5 accumulator came up trumps
Drinks are on this guy this Christmas.
Christmas came early for a Ladbrokes punter in Dublin this weekend, when a €5 accumulator with odds of 4,995/1 came good, earning him a tidy sum of €24,777.90 in the process.
The customer, a regular at the bookmaker's North Strand branch in Dublin, placed the winning ‘Result Rush’ wager at a Betstation in the shop, correctly predicting whether both teams would score and the winning team of six matches over the weekend.
The punter in question is either the biggest football expert on the planet or just incredibly lucky, as the six games in question included much-anticipated encounters such as Ruch Chorzow v Jagiellonia Bialystok and CS Gaz Metan Medias v CS Concordia Chiajna.
Commenting on the windfall, Hayley O'Connor of Ladbrokes said: "For us this is the nightmare before Christmas. For our customer, the festivities begin in the North Strand this year, not the North Pole, but rather than act the Grinch, we'll wish him well."
Talk about €5 well spent.
