Dublin punter lands massive gamble with €50, 19-team accumulator
The Premier League returns tonight but a Dublin-based gambler with a huge knowledge of a whole host of other leagues has already hit one bookie very hard this week.
According to Paddy Power a south Dublin based punter placed a €50 football accumulator covering 19 different games this week.
The games covered a wide range of countries and competitions including the European Super Cup clash between Real Madrid and Manchester United, the EFL Cup, the Scottish Premiership, the Portuguese Primeira Liga and even the Norwegian Eliteserien.
Incredibly, all 19 came in, concluding when Sunderland beat Bury last night in the EFL Cup.
The €50 stake returned a monster €41,081 and Paddy Power himself wasn't taking the big hit too hard.
“I don’t use the term often but this is weapons grade punting. At this early stage of the season there’s little or no form to read into so to land a 19-team accumulator is genuinely remarkable. He may have cleaned us out but we hope that he enjoys his winnings and we’re only too happy to pay for the celebrations."
