FOUR GOALS in an exhilarating 8 minute period at 4 different grounds helped turned a £10 free bet into £8,229 cash for one SportNation.Bet customer on Boxing day.
With 6 legs of the 10 fold 'over 2.5' goal accumulator in the bag, the bet looked destined to fall short until an 89th minute winner for Coventry City against Charlton gave a glimmer of hope.
It was then fitting that a goal in the most dramatic game of the day played its part, with Charlie Mulgrew's successful 90th minute penalty and apparent match winner for Blackburn against Leeds bringing the match total up to 3.
As the drama unfolded at Elland Road and Leeds secured a late winner to maintain their position at the top of the Championship another two less meaningful consolation goals scored in the 6th and 7th minutes of injury time for Bury in the shape of a penalty and Lincoln City respectively turned the monster accumulator into a winner, against the odds stacking up to over 10,000/1 in play.
The free bet was placed with SportNation's unique reward points loyalty system which allows customers to collect points to use in their rewards store for a range of items as well a free bets and spins. The win comes as SportNation celebrate giving away over £1 million in rewards points, redeemed for free bets and prizes by over 20,000 customers this year.
A spokesperson for SportNation.Bet said: "One customer will never forget the late Boxing Day drama as 4 goals up and down the country at the death turned rewards points into a Christmas cash windfall against the odds. While the Leeds goals against Blackburn may prove more significant in the long run, a couple of League One consolations were ultimately crucial in landing one of the best accumulators we've seen this year."
He added: "While thousands have benefited from using rewards points in the store for all kinds of items, turning points into a free bet proved to be a brilliant decision by this customer."
