Lad Wins Over £200k After Placing Miraculous 25p Football Bet

An unnamed man has somehow managed to win £205,000 off a 25p bet.

This is the kind of dabble you do without thinking anything is ever going to come of it. What's 25p?! Probably around the same price as a Freddo these days, to be honest. (Just checked, it is precisely the price of a Freddo). Plus, the odds of him winning were a staggering 820,728/1 - it would make as much sense to buy Paddy Power a Chomp (also 25p) and never return than expect anything to come of it.

However, sometimes these little bets pay off. And this one paid off BIG!!

He managed to correctly predict the following 11 games on an accumulator in a bookies in Coventry, with the actual final result in bold.

  • Armenia to beat Montenegro and over 2.5 goals (6/1) 3-2
  • France to beat Sweden and over 2.5 goals (10/11) 2-1
  • Czech Republic to beat Norway and over 2.5 goals (23/10) 2-1
  • Northern Ireland to beat Azerbaijan and over 2.5 goals (23/10) 4-0
  • Denmark to beat Kazakhstan and over 2.5 goals (10/11) 4-1
  • Millwall to beat Bristol Rovers and over 2.5 goals (2/1) 4-0
  • Port Vale to beat Fleetwood Town and over 2.5 goals (7/2) 2-1
  • Blackpool to beat Notts County and over 2.5 goals (2/1) 4-0
  • Leyton Orient to beat Colchester and over 2.5 goals (7/2) 3-0
  • Cambridge United to beat Crawley and over 2.5 goals (7/2) 3-1
  • Plymouth to beat Crewe and over 2.5 goals (13/50) 2-1

Are you actually shitting me?

Port Vale won against Fleetwood Town in the bloody 86th minute! Not only that, but Armenia came back from 2-0 down at half-time to win in stoppage time against Montenegro. Furthermore, Armenia are ranked 125 in FIFA rankings, while Montenegro come in at 74.

A Paddy Power spokesman, almost as if they were ready and waiting to make the most of this, told The Sun: "Talk about kicking a man when he's down - it had already been a tough week in HQ after we had our pants pulled down by paying out on Donald Trump, and then this fella rubbed salt in the wounds by landing this miracle-punt.

"I've no idea where Armenia is but hopefully this lucky fella will spend some of his winnings on a flight to thank them in person!"

To the spokesperson who absolutely knows where Armenia is, it borders Azerbaijan, Georgia and Turkey. Here's a map to help a bit.
