‪Punter Cashes Out 18-Fold Bet For Just £14, Ends Up Missing Out On £22,000

One football fan has had a complete nightmare after he missed out on the opportunity to win £22,000 on an 18-fold accumulator.

The punter, who has not been named, placed a £1.51 bet on 18 matches, only to cash out on £14.50.

Talk about having a complete shocker, right?

The fan correctly predicted the result for matches that included Southend United vs Barnsley, Bournemouth vs Manchester City, Southampton vs Manchester United and Crystal Palace vs Burnley.

When it comes to betting horror stories like these, fans have obviously flocked to social media to share their thoughts on the punter's decision to cash out early.

While one Twitter user asked why someone would cash out at only £14.50, one fan was to quick to suggest that you can buy nearly five of Tesco's meal deals with that kind of money.

Well, it's hard to fight against that logic, isn't it?

At least the punter can take solace in the fact that his work lunch is sorted for the upcoming week.
