Punter wins £23,500 after placing 9,385/1 bet

A betting enthusiast has won an audacious bet with the odds of 9,385/1 to win £23,465. The punter, identified Todd Newton, waged £2.50 on a three-match football bet on St Stephen’s Day.

The punter had a near-full fixture list to choose from but instead took a chance on the fixtures from English Premier League, Championship and League One. He put his money on all 6 teams scoring in both halves, picking Blackpool v Scunthorpe, Millwall v Wolves and Bournemouth v West Ham games. The Blackpool fixture ended 2-3, while Millwall drew 2-all with Wolves and the Bournemouth match finishing at 3-3.

The 27-year-old from Norwich in Norfolk was jubilant on winning the incredible bet which gives him £23,465. He took to Twitter to announce the windfall, tweeting “Merry Xmas to me I just won 23k of £2.50 absolute scenes.” Sky Bet, too tweeted: “So…@toddnewton1990 just won £23,465 from a £2.50 stake. SERIOUSLY. #bettingbetter.”

Todd had hundreds of punters congratulating him on the win.
