Punter left empty-handed after virtually cashing £1 million
There’s nothing more frustrating than missing out on a staggering win. An anonymous gambler has experienced that frustration during last weekend’s FA Cup round. He almost won £1 million in cash
but at the end of the sensational clashes his winnings had vanished like frost under the morning sun.
Football betting frustration
The unfortunate sports betting
enthusiast wagered on five FA Cup matches using a £10 accumulator. He seemed to have lady luck on his side as four predictions were correct. It all came down to the clash between Liverpool
and Bolton Wanderers. The punter in question was close to cashing £1 million but both teams failed to score, leaving him with a huge disappointment.
Not completely empty-handed
A spokesperson for the bookmaker confirmed that they offered him a £15,000 cash out option after the four successful bets. However, the gambler declined the offer as he felt confident about the fifth bet. The bookmaker awarded the four winning predictions with four £1,000 free bets. Additionally, they treated the unlucky gambler
to a FA Cup Final package.
