Punter Cashed Out £5 10-Fold Bet To Collect £200,000 Winnings
We have an early contender for bet of the season after one punter cashed out a £5 10-fold just in time to collect nearly £200,000 this weekend.
The Ladbrokes online customer ambitiously put on the bet, which needed 10 results across European football to come in, with odds of roughly 200,000/1.
The vast majority of outcomes were pretty plain-sailing but it was over in Spain where the nail-biting finales occured. Atletico Madrid came from 2-0 down to seal a last-gasp 3-2 win over Eibar but when it come to Real Madrid's game against Villarreal, he made the brave and correct decision to cash out at 1-1.
Villarreal went 2-1 up in the 74th minute but Gareth Bale levelled matters with his second in the 86th minute, before being sent off in the fourth minute of stoppage time.
The perfectly timed cash-out meant the punter was £199,737.57 richer after one of the most incredible bets in recent times.
:moneybag: Having backed Real Madrid to beat Villarreal in this ambitious Sunday 10-fold acca, one customer decided to cash out for a whopping £199,737.57 before the hosts took a shock lead, only for Bale to grab the visitors a late equaliser!- Ladbrokes (@Ladbrokes) September 2, 2019

Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: "It's early days in the season but this bet will take some beating as far as we're concerned."
"The timing of the cash out couldn't have been better and we're delighted for our plucky in-play punter."
Another mighty fine £5 10-fold bet came on the final day of the Premier League season when someone from Derbyshire correctly predicted every single result and pocketed exactly £117,485.16.
He had draws in Leicester-Chelsea, Southampton-Huddersfield and Tottenham-Everton, as well as Arsenal beating Burnley, Crystal Palace defeating Bournemouth, Fulham losing to Newcastle, West Ham signing off with a win over Watford and Cardiff pulling off a shock win over Manchester United.
The lad also accurately predicted both Liverpool and City would win their games on the final day, with Pep Guardiola's side coming from behind against Brighton to record a 4-1 victory that secured them back-to-back titles.
