£1.20 bet on foot­ball acca scoops £55k

Daily Mirror (Northern Ireland) - - NEWS - BY OLIVER MILNE

A FOOT­BALL fan has won £55,089 by get­ting nine se­lec­tions right with a £1.20 ac­cu­mu­la­tor bet.

The mid­week wa­ger, placed with bookie Co­ral, cor­rectly pre­dicted Man United to beat Ju­ven­tus in the Cham­pi­ons League with both teams scor­ing.

It also in­cluded Hof­fen­heim’s draw with Lyon and a host of other fix­tures from around the world.

The bet was placed in Strat­ford, East London, and would be priced at just over 45,900 to one.

Co­ral spokesman John Hill said: “This is a huge win for just a £1.20 stake.

“What makes this bet even more in­cred­i­ble is that the punter had two stop­page time goals in their favour and Hof­fen­heim came from 2-0 down with 10 men.”
