During the 2015/16 season a legendary punter placed £49.50 on a 22-fold accumulator at 30,303/1.
After the Premier League, Ligue 1 and Bundesliga result went his way, it was time to turn his attention to his final selection, Barcelona, to beat Real Sociedad. At this point it is hard to imagine what must’ve been going through his head, bearing in mind he was one Barcelona win away from £1,500,000!
The attraction of winning one and a half million pounds would be enough for most 20 year olds, however this level headed fella made the informed decision to cash out a portion of his bet for £53,000 and leave the remaining stake to ride.
This would turn out to be one of the best decisions of his life, as Barcelona went on to lose the game, only their second defeat in twenty-five games, which would have cost the punter £1,500,000!
