Huge win for sports fan who predicted seven match scores
A FOOTBALL fan has won almost £50,000 after successfully betting on a string of weekend scores.
The lucky BetVictor customer, from Derbyshire, correctly predicted the outcomes of seven matches across the top three leagues.
The customer, who has not been named, placed a £75 bet and had to get all the results correct to win.
Late goals at Ipswich Town's Portman Road and Wigan Athletic's DW Stadium kept the fan on track to claim the huge windfall.
The customer correctly predicted home wins for Leeds United and Doncaster Rovers, as well as away wins for Arsenal, Nottingham Forest and Cardiff City.
And draws at Wigan and Swansea City completed the unlikely triumph.
BetVictor spokesman Charlie McCann said: "The customer must have known, when Arsenal began in the late kick-off, he had a substantial amount of money riding on the match.
"When Arsenal went a goal down, perhaps he thought it wasn't going to be his day after all.
"As it turned out, he would have been toasting the Gooners afterwards and waking up £49,107.64 richer than Saturday morning."
