Unlucky punter misses out on winning £36,000 bet because of shock Premier League result

Unlucky punter misses out on winning £36,000 bet because of shock Premier League result

How unlucky can you get?

Luton's surprise win over Crystal Palace cost one unlucky YouTuber a bet worth more than £36,000.

Luton picked up their first ever home victory in the Premier League with a hard-fought 2-1 win over Palace at Kenilworth Road on Saturday.

Teden Mengi put the home side ahead midway through the second half before Michael Olise equalised almost immediately for Palace with a sensational goal.

Jacob Brown restored Luton's lead with around seven minutes of normal time remaining and the hosts held on to secure a vital victory.

The surprise result moves Luton four points clear of the relegation zone and comes as a surprise to many, given their struggles so far this season.

It also proved very costly for YouTuber Callux, real name Callum McGinley.

The internet star, who has more than four million subscribers on YouTube, revealed that Luton's victory had cost him thousands of pounds.

He took to X to post an image of a failed seven-fold accumulator he had placed on Saturday's games.

He had bet £100 on Manchester City and Liverpool to be a draw, and Palace, Newcastle, Brighton, West Ham, Bournemouth and Arsenal to win.

In the end, only Palace let him down – costing him £36,347.

Some fans of the YouTuber were quick to offer their sympathy.

"That's devastating," replied one supporter on X.

While another added: "I feel your pain."

Not all fans were sympathetic, however, with one replying: "If you have the funds to put £100 on an outcome this unlikely you should consider yourself very lucky, cause 99.9999% of people can't afford that."

A second fan replied: "That's what you get for betting against Luton."

While a Palace supporter simply put: "Glad we lost now."

Back in September, one unlucky punter was guilty of the 'worst cash out of all time' when they settled an 18-fold accumulator prematurely.

If they had decided to see it through then they would have turned a £10 free bet into £31,295.

But instead, they opted to cash out for just £34.68.
