Two Years Today, The Unluckiest Bet Ever Happened Didn't Pay Out

Two Years Today, The Unluckiest Bet Ever Happened Didn't Pay Out

There is always an empirical truth: something either is so, or it isn't - just as this sorry supporter found out yesterday, after his World Cup bet missed by a matter of inches.

It's a bet that you feel the gambling company should just pay out given the tiny margins in which their customer missed out on.

He laid down a fiver: Mexico to beat South Korea 2-1 at 9/1, Romelu Lukaku to score a brace in Belgium's clash against Panama at 6/1, and German midfielder Toni Kroos to score from outside the box at 14/1.

Well, the first two came through, but Kroos netting from a long-range effort didn't happen, simply because the free-kick he scored late on against Sweden was rolled to Marco Reus, before the attacker stopped the ball and Kroos let fly, burying the ball into the top corner and sending Germany back on course for a place in the knockout stages of the World Cup.

And so, it didn't happen. A five pound bet that could've earned £5,250 didn't come off in the end.

But he received support off plenty users of on social media. Some were even calling for the betting company to pay the guy purely for getting so desperately close.
