Cha Ching! How one punter turned €11 into €43,100 on the Champions League

Dubliner nets massive payout after €5 correct-score treble clicks at 8,099/1. And three €2 doubles top it off ...

by Sean Goff | October 1, 2014

You know how it is. You sit back, relax, take ownership of the remote control and think ‘I fancy a fiver on something here tonight’.

What you generally don’t expect is to nail a 8,099/1 correct-score treble but that’s exactly what one online customer in Dublin did in Tuesday night’s Champions League games.

In a feat of punting that makes Derren Brown look like a three-card trickster he correctly predicted that:

  • Bate Borisov would beat Athletic Bilbao 2-1 @ 14/1 
  • Money bags PSG would down Barcelona’s Messi, Neymar & Co. 3-2 @ 35/1 
  • Shakhtar Donetsk and Porto would draw 2-2 @ 14/1 


And it was the last game that caused our man the most grief.

Shakhtar Donetsk led 2-0 against Porto as the game drifted towards the final whistle.

But Colombian international Jackson Martinez popped up to convert an 89th-minute penalty before firing into the top corner in added time to make it 2-2 and secure the Dubliner’s booty.

And if the treble wasn’t enough he had ‘covered’ his bet with three 3 x €2 doubles (costing €6) to scoop an extra €2,600 on top of his €40,500

That’s €43,100 for 90 minutes work –  a deal to turn even Wayne Rooney green with envy.

A major Paddy Power hat-tip to you sir and consider yourself inducted into our Punting Hall of Fame!
