It’s Black Friday, a time for shrewd consumers to seek out the best bargains on the internet. However, at Colossus we’ve seen our players produce their own bargains this year! Here are five of our favourite tickets that cost relatively little but produced huge returns in 2019!

 

Sensational scenes as player scoops £8.832 in Win 6 pool at The Curragh

When one of our players staked £4 on the £20,000 Win 6 at Curragh in June, they can only have dreamed that a few hours later they would be receive an outrageous four-figure retun back into their account.

With just two lines on their ticket, the player managed to get six consecutive winners, including 12/1 and 7/1 pokes, winning £8,832 for their efforts. It was a 2,208x return on their initial investment, an unbelievable effort.

Player converts £1 NBA ticket into £12,500

The NBA season only returned on October 22nd and, with £25,000 Point Margin pools on offer, it didn’t take one one of our players long at all to pocket an outrageous return. In fact, it only took a week.

With just a single £1 line on their ticket, the player was going for half of the £25,000 prize and had absolutely no room for error. The Detroit Pistons, New York Knicks, Denver Nuggets and Utah Jazz all followed the script in the Pick 5 pool, meaning it would all come down to Miami in the final leg. The player needed them to win by 13-16 points and, after some final quarter dramatics, they nabbed a 15 point victory earning the ticket a wonderful £12,500 return.

Shrewd player lands 652x return in Correct Score pool

Correct score pools are prime for low stake, high return wins owing to their difficulty. One player didn’t find a Premier League – Pick 4 pool particularly taxing in September though, earning a 652x return on their modest stake.

With the ticket costing just £3.20, the player had bought 16 lines at £0.20 a pop. Man City beat Everton to land the opening leg and, with the action then moving to La Liga, 1 1-0 victory for Granada in addition to a 0-0 draw in the Madrid derby gave the player three perfect legs.

It would all come down to Eibar vs. Celta Vigo and when Eibar managed to win 2-0, the player saw their £3.20 ticket become worth £2,089!

Win 6 ticket secures player €9,236 return from €4 stake

Another summer Win 6 pool, another small stake, another vast return! This time the action took place at Kempton Park and the player in question was playing €1 per line, meaning a potential jackpot of €10,000 was up for grabs.

Despite a couple of close calls, particularly in the penultimate leg in which Hot Touch was able to overcome being held up to win by 3/4 of  a length, the player landed five straight winenrs. In the final leg the player had picked four selections and must have been overjoyed when Encryption was able to romp home and, as a result, win the player a fantastic €9,236 windfall. As a 2,309x return, it was even marginally more impresssive that the aforementioned winner at Curragh!

Correct Score ticket nets staggering £27,384 prize

Last, but certainly not least, another Correct Score ticket that livened up an international break in June.

Another Correct Score – Pick 4 pool, this time the player decided to play 8x £2 lines and, as such, was going for the full £30,000 available.

The player watched on as Portugal defeated Netherland 1-0 in the the UEFA Nations League final to get the ticket off to a perfect start before 3-0 wins for both Spain and Czech Republic got the ticket through to its final leg.

It all rested on Turkey vs. Iceland and the player had gone for a 2-1 Icelandic victory, despite Turkey’s good form leading up to the match. Iceland went into half-time with a 2-1 lead and, for the ticket to win there could be no more goals. Resisting the urge to Cash Out, the player let the ticket ride into an end to end second half. However, despite 16 shots on goal, no more goals were scored and the player landed an enormous £27,384 return! It was a 1,711x increase on their stake and must be our bargain ticket of the year.
