What a rollercoaster it was for the customer with online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au, who pocketed $23,712 for their meagre $10 investment thanks to the New England Patriots’ tense overtime win in the Super Bowl.
The four leg multi also included Cronulla to win the NRL, Cleveland in the NBA and Western Bulldogs in the AFL.
There were plenty of other winners during today’s game, as New England got out to as much as $34 in live Super Bowl betting. Two people were smart enough to have $10 on the Patriots at that stage.
And spare a thought for the punter who lost a $4,106.31 bet on Atlanta at $1.02 when they were 28-3 up!
“We ended up paying out around $1.3 million on the Patriots winning the game itself, so the punters got it right….they just had a few nervous moments,” said sportsbet.com.au’s Christian Jantzen.
