Punters Pocket Whopping £160,000 On Incredible £8 Ten Team Bet
Four punters have scored huge after making a massive £160,000 return on a £8 bet placed on ten games.
The group of friends bet on 'goals galore no draw' meaning both teams had to score and the game couldn't end in a draw.
The bet spanned across a variety of leagues and competitions including the Championship, FA Cup and La Liga.
The tweet was made at 12:45pm on Sunday afternoon, with just Blackpool and Maidstone United left to complete the bet.
The score at the time was 1-0 to Maidstone which would have created a nervy wait for goals in the second half.
but 'The Tangarines' didn't let the punters down and bagged three in the second half to bring in the money.
3-1 to Blackpool..looks like you and your pals are going to have an amazing Xmas :grin::thumbsup:- City on my Mind (@PaulSmi59146753) December 1, 2019
The other games on their bet certainly didn't let them down.
Goals flew in across the footballing calendar this weekend and the whopping cash prize is a once in a lifetime catch.
One man they may have to thank for their bet coming in is Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson.
Liverpool were 2-0 ahead against Brighton on Saturday afternoon and looked comfortable.

But a long ball over the top for Leandro Trossard saw Alisson rush off his line and handle the ball outside his area.
He was sent off and Brighton captain Lewis Dunk scored from the following free-kick after some quick thinking.
The 27-year-old will now miss Liverpool's next three games including the Merseyside Derby against Everton on Wednesday night.
Without that red card, it was hard to see Graham Potter's side fashioning a goal against 'The Reds'.
Perhaps the Brazilian deserves some form of thank you for the part he's played.
