January, eh? It’s like that old saying, if you’re going through hell, keep going. But longer and more boring.
Still, we’re sure some people must enjoy it. Tax accountants. They sound like they love a good, cold, wet, miserable January evening going through receipts and wondering if that packet of crisps and roll really qualifies as a work expense.

And I’m sure some people must have a birthday then – good for you, but the rest of could probably do with it being about a fortnight shorter than it is, no offence.
However, it’s not all doom and gloom in the month after Christmas, at least for the latest Paddy Power All Stars table-topper!
In case you don’t know, the Bet Builder All Stars is Paddy’s way of rewarding those who pull off sensational Bet Building feats with prizes like football jerseys, Apple products, Amazon vouchers, free bets and more – on top of bet winnings of course!
Our shrewdest soccer soothsayer for January stumped our traders with a sensational selection of 15 – yes, fifteen! – winners across five different games on January 29th to leap into top spot for the month with a 1230/1 Multi-Match Bet Builder win!
There was plenty of FA Cup magic involved in this stunning punt, with three correct calls in each of Blackburn v Wrexham, Liverpool v Norwich and Newport County v Man United during the fourth round.
Diogo Jota, Bruno Fernandes and Ireland’s (or not?) Sammie Szmodzics netted in each tie to bring in Anytime winners, while Both Teams to Score clicked as well across the games and all the favourites won.
Nine of nine, not a bad start.
But our Glasgow-based punter was finished, and a continental jaunt jack the odds up past four-figures for this incredible return.
A trip to the German Bundesliga proved to be wunderbar as Dortmund beat Bochum with both sides netting and forward Niclas Fullkrug among the goalscorers, and then it was off to the Portuguese Primeira where perennial Champions League fixture Porto took care of Farense on their travels thanks in part to an Evanilson goal as both teams also scored.
That brought in the staggering Multi-Match Bet Builder win and also saw our winner claim top prize for January in the Bet Builder All Stars standings.
And just in case you’re thinking you could never put such a winning punt together, we should also mention there’s a chance to win a free bet each week even if your Bet Builder just falls short – we’ve all been one leg away from that massive win haven’t we? SO it’s about time those feats of near brilliance were acknowledged.
That’s why we’ll be showcasing the five longest-odds Bet Builders that lost by one-little-bloody-effing leg in our Off The Post section.
