We all dream of football betting wins here in the UK, but never think it will actually happen.
What if my small bet on Manchester United turns into thousands of pounds? What if that one spin on my favourite football slot megareel.com/all-games/slots/starburst will lead to the payout that will pay off my mortgage?
For some lucky folks in the UK, this has become a reality. Is it luck or is it purely down to skill? Read on to make your mind up for yourself but be warned, this may make you a tad jealous.
Large UK Football Betting Wins
How can a £1 bet lead to a £575, 000 win? This happened to a lucky 58 year old woman in Kent in 2017. She picked out 12 selections with the majority being odds-against outsiders.
She placed a bet that Huddersfield would beat West Brom and Sheffield Wednesday would beat Aston Villa and guessed various other results too. It seems like her win was down to 'beginner's luck' as she doesn't necessarily enjoy football.
She only placed bets to make it more enjoyable to watch with her husband. Lucky!
If we knew the secret of how to turn 30p into half a million pounds we'd be multimillionaires by now.
Lucky Man Utd Fan
A Manchester United fan from Staffordshire won £500, 000 back in 2014, you can win too at this site.
He placed a tiny 30p bet on a 15 event accumulator at the beginning of the season which had odds at 1, 666, 666-to-one. He also has predicted many other games in the past. Maybe this guy is psychic?
He's a Liverpool fan now
An anonymous football fan scooped over half a million back in 2011. His football betting strategy of never placing more than £1 on a bet proved to be successful when he won £585, 000 after the final game in the Premier League between Chelsea and Liverpool.
Luckily for him, Liverpool ended up winning the game (albeit this didn't look promising in the first half) as Glen Johnson managed to score with only 3 minutes left to spare.
Although this lucky chap didn't claim to be a Liverpool fan before, he certainly is now.
What a Nerve
We've saved the most unbelievable until last. One lucky man from London won a staggering £650, 000 after placing a £100 bet.
He rightly predicted 8 results whilst the game was in play on all of the teams which were losing. The eight games had only 20 minutes left with the majority of the results not being in favour of the bets he placed to begin with.
He placed a bet that would see West Ham and Stoke draw when they were 2-0 down and a predicted a draw between Charlton and Sheffield Wednesday when they were losing. For only 20 nerve-wracking minutes, £650, 000 is certainly amazing!
After analysing all of these stories, it seems that it's all just down to luck, right? We like anonymous football fan's tip of never placing more than a £1 bet to be in with the chance of winning half a million.
We wonder how many times he had to place a bet to win such an inspiring amount. Here's hoping your next bet will be just as lucky as these guys.
