£2.50. That’s the kind of loose change knocking around your back pocket, or at the bottom of your bag, or in the foot-well of your motor. It will barely buy you a cheeseburger and chips at McDonalds. It certainly won’t buy you a pint in most pubs.
£10.5k on the other hand….
One Paddy Power punter in Derbyshire struck gold in the League Cup last night – turning that £2.50 into more than £10.5k thanks to an inspired nine-fold and a cheeky Paddy Power bonus. Despite some managers playing weaker sides and a whole host of upsets which saw Arsenal and Everton crash out, and Norwich beaten by League Two side Shrewsbury, this punter showed tact, nous and a whole lot of luck to click a massive coup.
The fact that this iPhone punter placed the bet on his app less than five minutes before kick-off, means that it took less than two hours for this shrewd punter to pick up more than £9.5k plus a bonus of £1k off the boss thanks to an acca bonus. Not bad for a Tuesday night with Christmas creeping ever closer.
Anyone with the balls to back Fulham to win a game probably deserves the win to be fair. The Acca Bonus that Paddy is wheeling out also doesn’t look so smart now.
Tonight there are another six Capital One Cup games to get stuck into with Chelsea, Man City and Tottenham all in action at home. The traders and the bean-counters in Power Tower are taking cover on the back of this stunning acca, as punters try to empty Paddy’s pockets again.
