An incredibly lucky football fan has turned 42p into over £13,000 and has a new favorite player in the form of Wilfred Zaha.
The Ivory Coast winger’s winner in the second minute of stoppage time against Southampton in the Premier League last weekend secured a 15-time punt that brought huge rewards.
But it was in Yorkshire that the gamble was settled, with Manchester City’s 4-0 victory over Leeds in the evening seeing the ambitious 31,762/1 gamble come to fruition.
The punter will also have been delighted with Burnley’s late 2-1 victory over Watford after betting on Mike Jackson’s men, trailing 1-0 until the 83rd minute, to emerge victorious.
“A few teams left it late, but after Burnley and Crystal Palace scored late winners over the weekend, one of our clients found himself celebrating after successfully predicting the outcome of 15 games. separate,” said William Hill spokesman Tony Kelly.
“Having wagered just 42p on games across England and Scotland the punter won £13,340.30 and there must have been some nervy moments with Palace giving it up until the 92nd minute for beat Southampton.”
A punter had a bank holiday on Monday to remember as his £20 stake on Fulham to score over 100 Championship goals this season came through in his penultimate game, leading to wins of over 6 £000.
A fine strike from Tom Cairney against Luton confirmed the wins as the Cottagers netted their 100th league goal of the season. Marco Silva’s men activated the style by inflicting a 7-0 hammering on the Hatters to seal the league title.
