A punter from Dublin is today facing the decision of a lifetime as he is one game away from landing not one, but two massive accumulators.
For stakes of €20 and €10 respectively our capital-based customer just needs Sam Allardyce’s Crystal Palace to win at Bournemouth tonight to cash in on both an eight-team acca that returns just over €88,000 and a ten-team wager that could net him an additional €44,500.
The total payout on the two bets comes in at a whopping €132,789 and he’s had some extraordinary luck to get this far, but the question on everybody’s lips in Power Tower this morning is will he take the Cash Out offer?
His €88k punt
The image above shows our punter’s potential €88k winning bet coming from a stake of just €20 and it includes games from Italy, Spain, Germany, France and of course tonight’s midweek Premier League action.
To get to this point on this wager, he needed:
- 90th minute leveller from Monaco’s Bernardo Silva at PSG,
- a two-goal comeback from Sampdoria to win 3-2 at home to Roma
- even more incredibly, a three-goal revival from Borussia Monchengladbach – who scored three times in the second half to claim a 3-2 victory at Bayer Leverkusen having been 2-0 as early as the 34th minute.
However, as fortunate as that bet sounds, it pales in comparison to his possible €44.5k winning bet – which came from a lower €10 stake.
Not only did he need the PSG and Monchengladbach results from his other punt to come in, but he was also saw Chievo’s Roberto Inglese net in the 90th minute away at Lazio to bring in a 5/1 part of his ten-legger.
To put the cherry on top of that for the Dubliner, he must be counting his blessings that we decided our customers deserved a Justice Payout on Barcelona after they were denied a clear goal, which was miles over the line, in their 1-1 away to Real Betis.
We paid out on a Barca win in that one on all single and multiple bets and that helped to bring our punter to the brink of this epic justice payout.
Our punters €44.5k bet
However, he does have another option – that is to Cash Out his bets and not take the risk on Crystal Palace, who’ve failed to win on their last eight Premier League games away from Selhurst Park.
On the €88k punt he’s been offered €23,291 and on the €44.5k acca the Cash Out offer is €9,807, so that’s a total of €33,098 to walk away now and not take the risk on Palace.
After all, Bournemouth have made the Vitality Stadium a bit of a fortress this season picking 18 of their 26 Premier League points there.
So what would you do?
Asked how he feels about the two massive accas spokesman Paddy Power said: “‘I could barely sleep last night due to excitement for this punter so god knows how he feels.
“This is one of the most ballsy accumulators I’ve ever seen and although we’ve already (stupidly) given him a helping hand with our justice payout on Barcelona, I’ll definitely be cheering on Crystal Palace to finish the job tonight – honest!”
