PaddyPower African Cup Football Bet – Punters Celebrate African Cup Goals

With a PaddyPower African Cup Football Bet, two PaddyPower punters were celebrating the madness of the African Cup of Nations last night having backed the curtain-raising match between hosts Angola and Mali to finish 4-4. It’s not the first time online bookmaker has been caught out by the outlandish scoreline with previous matches involving the likes of Liverpool and Arsenal forcing the bookmaker to revise the correct score odds from 500/1 to 350/1. However the bookmaker, with just £4 staked on the eight goal stalemate in Angola’s football match, is breathing a sigh of relief the £1400 payout wasn’t more.

Darren Haines, spokesman for, said: “The African nations does have a history for goals due to some leaky defences in tournaments past so perhaps this is one that got away for punters this time round.”
