Man wins huge 200/1 6-0 bet on 60th birthday, 10 years after 50th birthday punt came in

A man won a huge 200/1 bet on his 60th birthday after correctly predicting that his beloved Swindon Town would win 6-0.

Over on X, formerly known as Twitter, user @ChrisMaisey simply had to share the incredible bet which came in on Saturday.

He explained that with his father celebrating a milestone, they decided to put on a bet that mirrored the digits of his age.

The flutter came about because a decade ago, when he turned 50, a 5-0 bet came in.

Former Spurs midfielder and now coach Ryan Mason scored a hat-trick, while Nile Ranger and Massimo Luong were also target as the Robins battered Crewe Alexandra in 2013.

Incredibly, Mason missed a stoppage-time penalty which would have made it 6-0 and the £10 stake turned in £1000.

On this occasion, Crawley Town were the opposition and the hosts went 1-0 up through Dan Kemp in the 34th minute.

Then, on-loan striker Jake Young continued his electric start to the season by producing an insane four-goal in a 24-minute period.

The score was 5-0 right up until the 99th minute when Tyrese Shade got in on the act. For some, the 23-year-old's strike was just rounding off an emphatic win but for Chris and his dad the goal was monumental.

It meant they were £4000 richer from a £20 bet and Chris shared the winning slip, with the caption: "10 years ago for my dad's 50th we bet Swindon 5-0 v Crewe and this year we bet Swindon 6-0 for his 60th! Unreal scenes!"

Both bets were placed with Paddy Power and incredibly, if you rewind to 2003 on the same day as Chris' old man's 40th birthday - Swindon were 4-0 victors over Notts County. However, there is no mention of bet for that particular win.

One can already guess what the bet might be in another decade, with Chris stating: “Already said we'll have to stake £70 for his 70th!”
