Imagine this, putting a 90-pound bet on accumulator not actually expecting to get anything in return. Then finding out that you have in fact been lucky enough to win the over 2700/1 bet to win a massive 250 thousand pounds. Well at the moment this bet hasn’t been claimed to mean the lucky man may not have even realized that he has a fortune waiting for him at the bookies. We aren’t sure what all of the different bets were but we do know that Benfica winning the Portuguese league was part of the accumulator amongst the things needed for him to get this massive win.
A member of the public, aged in his 50’s from Harrow in North West London is the lucky person and we’re sure he’ll be ecstatic when he realizes this punt paid off. The bet was placed on the 13’th of December 2016 and may have been completely forgotten about. Although it is more than likely he will realize he’s won and maybe even think to check because of seeing this on the news/online!
William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly has also had his say on the issue and confirmed that the “punter had gone missing” and also the an-believable “betting windfall of 243,858.21” has not yet been collected. He continued to say “There is nearly a quarter of a million in this chaps betting account but we have heard nothing from him, Imagine if he has forgotten about the bet he has placed, he will be set for quite the pleasant surprise”
This amount of money would transform anybody’s life and enable them to do pretty much anything from buying a house to purchasing a Lamborghini! This isn’t the first time in recent memory that somebody has been extremely lucky with a bet. Remember at the end of last year when a number of punters were happy with Leicester winning the Premier League. One lucky person even managed to win a nice 20,000 from a stake he placed at the start of that season.
