One lucky punter took home £1,348 in our midweek Pick 15 from the 12/15 Consolation pot! They placed their modest 80p ticket on Sunday evening – playing for a possible £80,000 – covering as many as 11 draws!
After the first round of fixtures the ticket had a respectable 7/8, but with Everton beating rock bottom Huddersfield 1-0, their dream of taking the full Jackpot ended.
The following day, Fiorentina remarkably thrashed Roma 7-1 in the Italian cup and Atlanta shocked Juventus with a 3-0 victory at home. These two results meant the ticket could only receive a maximum of 12/15.
This turned out to be exactly what happened as the final 4 games all ended as a draw, taking the overall tally to 7 in the pool! This proved to be very profitable as the overall payout in Consolations reached over 1,685 times this players stake!
This beauty, played by a Solo customer, returned £6,065 from a cost of just £16! Playing for the full £10,000 Jackpot, their punt was a favourites based ticket. French Mix (5/2), Slowmo (Evs), Cloudlam (5/6) and Castle hill Cassie (2/1) all lived up to their expectations as this ticket sailed through to leg 5.
Fenjal (5/1) overcame Wall of Sapphire (4/1) in the 18:55 to set up a tense final leg with just 12.2 units remaining in the pool to play for the Jackpot.
With 4 selections in the final leg, this customer ignored the whole of the Cash Out offer to let 100% of the ticket ride on the final leg. It proved to be a masterstroke as outsider Foxy Lady (14/1) managed to shock the rest of the field, overcoming Mans not Trot (3/1) and Mossy’s Lodge (3/1) to secure the Jackpot.
Only 1.7 units remained at the end and this punter collected £6,065 from a £16 ticket. Not bad for a Monday evening!
