Call it beginners luck if you will, but one punter’s first bet after opening their account turned $10 into $22,000 with online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au.
- Punter collects $22,000 from a $10 bet
- All 9 winners of the AFL round were included
- It was the customer’s first bet after opening an account
The customer deposited their $10 and put on a multi containing all 9 winners over the AFL round.
The original odds were $4,435/1. Geelong’s draw against GWS lessened the payout, but $22,180.92 isn’t a bad return for your first bet. Imagine if Tom Hawkins was able to slot the winner after the siren!
Brisbane’s victory over Essendon was undoubtedly the star selection in the multi at $7.00, although Richmond ($3.62) needed to overcome Port at Adelaide Oval as well.
“What a way to christen your account with a 9-leg multi winning more than $22,000! We may have unearthed the next great punter in the process, but that’ll be a hard act to follow,” said sportsbet.com.au’s Christian Jantzen.
