This weekend, Betfair’s trading team has announced its ‘greatest cash-out of all time’, as a bettor obtained £53,000 from a potential £1.5 million accumulator.
The football punter placed an impressive 22 match accumulator on this weekend’s football matches (listed below).
Betfair stated that the punter was completely fearless. He was offered a cash-out price of £25,000 prior to Saturday’s late Premier League match, Manchester City vs West Brom.
With 15 accumulator matches obtained, the punter resisted as Manchester City bounced back to beat West Brom. After the conclusion of the match at Etihad Stadium, the punter ‘cashed-out’ to secure his £53,000 winnings.
Following the accumulator run, Betfair’s Football Trader Michael Bowers commented:
“This is the mother of all Cash Outs with the customer correctly predicting that Barcelona weren’t going to do the business against Real Sociedad. The UK customer in his late twenties took a Cash Out value of £53,000 15 minutes before kick-off at the Anoeta Stadium and would have been elated to see Barcelona failing to find the net.
”This punter’s nerve would have already been put to the test after the 15th leg of his 22 fold accumulator as he watched Man City go 1-0 down against West Brom. Having refused a Cash Out of £25,000 ahead of the late kick off in the Premier League he would have been incredibly relieved to see Pellegrini’s men manage to pull it back in the second half.”
