Incredible scenes on Monday as one punter saw their £128 ticket return a staggering £79,225 in our Over/Under 2.5 Goals Pick 20!
They benefited from some late goals during the course of the pool:
- 2 injury time goals in Southampton 1-2 Cardiff on Saturday afternoon secured an Over 2.5 Goals selection
- Sead Kolasinac’s own goal in injury time helped land an Overs selection as Huddersfield lost 2-1 to Arsenal
- Emre Can came on for Juve and scored with his first touch (making it 3-0) in the 86th minute to bring in another Overs selection in leg 17 on Sunday evening
AC Milan vs Cagliari (leg 19) was the last game to be played on Sunday, with our punter needing Over 2.5 Goals to get through to leg 20. Two first-half goals from AC Milan set the tone for the match before their new signing Piatek scored in the 62nd minute, sending our winner through to Monday.
Incredibly, the player had shown balls of steel to ignore all of their Cash Out offers to this point! The offer at the end of play on Sunday night was something very different though, with £66,973 on the table…
They slept on it.
After waking up on Monday morning, they decided to accept 80% of that offer, banking £53,579 – what a way to start the week!
Still, they could add a further £25,000+ to their haul if Under 2.5 goals landed in Wolves vs Newcastle. Wolves’ last 7 games in all competitions had involved more than than 2.5 goals, but the player was in luck this time around. Newcastle led 1-0 until the 95th minute and despite a late equaliser for Wolves, the customer was comfortable.
That last winning selection earned them their extra £25,646 (Consolation prize money taking it over £25,000) on top of what they had already Cashed Out.
Their ticket cost them a relatively chunky £128, but the total returns of £79,225 makes it all worth it!
Well played that punter – congratulations from us here at Colossus!
