Punter Wins Big In Icy Football Bet

The punter wins big in icy football bet who was from Edmonton in North London, staked a life-changing £40 weekend accumulator at the online bookmaker across a variety of European football matches and having seen thirteen of his fourteen selections come up trumps at the weekend was left sweating on Manchester City’s match against Blackburn Rovers on Monday night. Needing a win for City to land his bonanza bet Carlos Tevez’s hat-trick in City’s 4-1 win secured the payout and a great start to the punter’s 2010.

PaddyPower himself said: “What a great win – I’m not sure anyone has profited from the country’s Big Freeze in quite spectacular style although the celebrations could literally be on ice as he’s not even telling his wife!”

The anonymous man said: “I wouldn’t normally pick so many European fixtures in my weekend accumulator but what with the weather there was no real alternative. I didn’t really think it stood a snowball’s chance of coming home as my knowledge of European football betting isn’t brilliant but now I must be the happiest person in Britain with all the chaos the snow has caused. Without it I may not have won.”
