Punter scoops £185,000 from £20 bet after correctly predicting results of NINE Championship footie matches

A PUNTER was celebrating after the opening weekend of the Championship as he scooped £185,000 — for a £20 bet.

The football fan correctly predicted the results for all nine of Saturday’s matches.

Blackpool’s 93rd-minute equaliser at Bristol City sealed the winning accumulator for the punter, from East London.

John Hill, of Coral, which took the bet, said: “It will be a Saturday afternoon that our punter will never forget.

"After correctly predicting the match results in all nine Championship matches on the opening Saturday of the season, he is now £185,000 better off.

“Our customer will be raising a glass to Blackpool as the Tangerines equalised deep into stoppage time to help him land his astonishing bet.

“Maybe a trip to the seaside in Blackpool will be in order as part of his celebrations.”
