Punter puts $500 on Australia to win the World Cup with the new TAB app, it's paying $200,000

One football fan was feeling perhaps a little too patriotic after witnessing Australia thrash mighty Tunisia 1-0 at the World Cup.

A TAB punter has placed $500 on the Socceroos to win the World Cup.

Yes, win the entire tournament.

And with odds at $401, it would pay out a whopping $200,000 if Graham Arnold's side can go all the way in Qatar.

You can bet on the Socceroos vs Denmark RIGHT HERE.

After losing against reigning champions France in their opening clash, Australia needed a big win against Tunisia if they stood any chance of making out of the group.

A glancing header from Mitch Duke put the Socceroos 1-0 up before half-time, sparking mass excitement among supporters Down Under.

One individual, in particular, was clearly buzzing with the score after 45 minutes of action and decided it'd be the right time to whack on a $500 bet on the Socceroos to win the World Cup.

The team went on to secure a hard-fought backs-against-the-wall victory, meaning they now need a victory against Denmark to secure a place in the Round of 16.

Denmark will be a tough test, but it's still all to play for, so we're hoping this Socceroos super-fan's optimism hasn't dwindled.

With their phone-in-hand at half-time, this monster bet was made easier and faster for the punter through the new TAB app.

Huge updates to TAB’s digital betting experience make it one of the smoothest apps for all us punters out there with overall speed increasing by 160 per cent.

Compared to the last app, the new one makes it nine seconds faster to place an actual bet, giving punters a more immersive experience while watching their favourite sports teams at home, at the pub or at the stadium itself.

The addition of the 'Venue Mode' also gives customers more offers while betting in TAB’s 4,000 venues across Australia, meaning you can see what’s on offer at your closest local – even meal discounts.

Not bad, not bad at all.
