Four lucky bettors managed to win £160,000 after an amazing £8 10 team bet.

Four lucky punters managed to snag an amazing early Christmas present as they made a £160,000 return on an £8 bet placed across 10 games with bookmaker Betfred, whose review you can read here. The bet centred around the ‘goals galore no draw’ market, which was predicated on both sides hitting the back of the net and the match not ending in a draw. The bet itself took in matches from La Liga, the FA Cup, the Championship and the Premier League as the bet spanned across a number of countries and leagues.

The final leg of the bet saw the four desperately hoping Blackpool could hit the back of the net against Maidstone with the latter leading 1-0 at half-time. Blackpool did not disappoint either as they went on to score three second-half goals to see the bet come in as the punters probably celebrated the Blackpool goals as if they were life long fans of the Tangarines and had just watched them net those goals in the Champions League final!

While Blackpool were one of the sides that had to turn things around dramatically in the second-half, the punters were left to thank Alisson’s red card against Brighton which saw Liverpool go down to 10-men before Lewis Dunk fired the resulting free-kick into the back of the net as he took advantage of substitute goalkeeper Adrian trying to perfect his wall. That goal saw Brighton get on the scoresheet despite rarely threatening before this and while they went on to lose 2-1, it was the perfect result for the bettors who will no doubt enjoy the festive period with their hefty winnings.
