Just take a another look at the dot point above…..ridiculous! How could that bet possibly come off in last night’s Socceroos v Brazil clash?

Well, online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au opened up the request line to punters with their #BYOSOCCEROOS bets, and one punter came up with the multi as a bit of a laugh.

The customer placed $10 at odds of $151 for a $1,510 collect but it was then left open for anyone else to have a crack.

And have a crack they did. In all, 279 punters got on for various amounts that totalled $228,697.

“We opened up the floor for bet suggestions from the public and the punters have made us pay,” said sportsbet.com.au’s Christian Jantzen.
