Man wins £50,000 after picking 15 games at random just for a £2.50 bet

Tags: Alan Thomson, Betfred, England.
Posted on Thursday, May 04, 2017 by "T".

A Rangers fan was apparently in a rush that time so he placed his goal bet within 10 seconds only, but it made him a winner! Alan Thomson, age 28, who works at Tunnock's and makes their famous teacakes and caramel logs for a living, placed a 20,000 - 1 accumulator bet on 15 English football matches.

Amazingly, he won a sweet £50,000 just from a £2.50 bet at his local bookmaker.

With his winnings, he's now planning to marry his fiancée Nico Love in Las Vegas, place a deposit on a house, and he said he'll also treat his nephews and nieces.

How It Happened
Alan was in a rush on April 22, Saturday so he just skimmed through the football coupon at Betfred located in his hometown Uddington, Lanarkshire.

He chose matches at random, betting on whether there would be an even or odd amount of goals per game. He said, "It took me 10 seconds to fill in the coupon. It was the first time I have done this bet. I didn't study form, I just went for it and hoped for the best. All I did check was that the matches were all kicking off at 3pm so I wouldn't be hanging around wondering if I had won."

Feels Like a Dream
Alan, who met Nico, age 22, at Tunnock's said, "This has set us up for life. We've got enough for a deposit on a house and we're off to Las Vegas in the New Year to get married. It is surreal, we feel we're in a dream. We are Rangers fans and went to Sunday's game. We really should be sad after losing to Celtic but I can't stop myself from smiling. When I woke on Sunday, I kept thinking it was all a dream. We are the talk of Tunnock's."

He was so calm and relaxed about the whole thing that he was napping when the final whistles blew, "When I woke up, I starting checking the results on my phone. I got to the fifth or sixth one being OK and kept thinking that the next one would beat me. Then I had 11 right and I started shaking. I couldn't concentrate and got Nico to check all 15 matches. She couldn't believe it either and I think I let out a scream."

Simple Celebration
Unlike most big winners, Alan did not initially celebrate with a bottle of champagne and a swanky feast. Instead, he celebrated with just a couple of cans and Nico treated them to a £12 Chinese takeout. He said, "It is just unbelievable. We had already booked a trip to Gran Canaria, then we're off to Florida and then Vegas next year to get married - all for £2.50."

Nico was elated and can't believe their luck, "Our lives have changed forever. Maybe we'll ask the Betfred boss Fred Done to our wedding. We had to keep checking the betting slip. It is an amazing achievement by Alan."

On the Record
The £50,000 payout so far was the biggest prize won on Betfred's new Odd or Even coupon with punters gambling on the total goals per match. Alan astonishingly got them all on his coupon.

Betfred co-owner Fred Done said, "I'm delighted to write this cheque. It is a life-changing win for the couple and best wishes for their wedding. They are set up for life - thanks to Betfred. Alan's team didn't win on Sunday but you can't have everything."

What a fantastic success for this guy, 15 out of 15 picks of odd or even nimber of goals scored in the match is very hard to get right, it looks like easy when you read about it, nut I have so much trouble of winning even 5 out of 5 accumulator.
 Mober5/4/2017 7:47:10 PM GMT
How many times did he try already winning a coupon by games he had already
studied.
And he got this one by filling fast the coupon with odd even.
And he got lucky hitting fifteen game with 50% chance each Smile

This is one of those stories that make us all try to win again and again ..... this person has incredible luck and maybe he will be able to do something like that again))) ... but seriously that crazy luck kept him for Hand at the time of betting

This is why its a total degenerate gambler move wagering money on this. Very hard to get right multiple ones.

Lucky lucky lucky. Wouldn't we all just love for our accumulators to come in when we don't even give consideration to what we are choosing!!! I often think that whatever accumulator I pick, that maybe I should reverse the selection and maybe I would stand a better chance. I could bet on Barcelona beating some Sunday morning team and the Sunday morning team would win!

You get to read about these sort of bets every now and then and well done to him. Sometimes you can over analyse things and, this just goes to prove, keeping it simple does work at times

holy shaizen a 20.000 to 1 accumulator, back in the days legendary gambler pochui has placed a 250.000 to 1 accumulator, for $0.01 stake only but still i can brag for the remainder of my degen days. sure things turned out a bit different than here, but hey i you don't try you don't win.
 DaCapo715/5/2017 9:24:41 AM GMT
Verry nice winning for a 15 games pick bet combination with a small investment. Sometimes it was better to bet verry fast without detail information, only with a good feeling Blink Off course this combination looks verry crazy, but for a small buy in- why not.

this is how you bet on football and how you win big amount!and best is when you choose bets in few seconds,when you dont have enough time!when you thinking half hour,you dont guess half of them!congratulation to him on this success!
 RoninHarper5/5/2017 1:58:14 PM GMT
Wow
I think that is how he should pick from now on.
It seems to be a great working strategy for him.
Why can we get that kind of like this month.
be cool mates

Oh well maybe that's the only way to win at football betting, that is by selecting random football match and market because I always lose bets when doing it like normal people...
 Mober5/5/2017 8:02:09 PM GMT
I have tried the total random bets more than enough, but not this kind of even odd,
the normal ones 1x2. Never worked. I can say not even close Smile
That of course chasing the big money by playing many games in the same coupon.
 Gerimantas5/5/2017 8:05:46 PM GMT
I too place some accumulators from time to time, they are fun and odds are so big when the accumulator is from many bets, I had combined over 20 bets into one and only big favourites were on ticket and only two teams failed, I would win over 30,000 euros, but no luck
 dule-vu5/6/2017 1:40:32 PM GMT
I cant just choose 15 games and bet in 10 seconds!because I must see how they play,what to bet on that game,because I follow football and know results,so cant just bet without thinking!but big respect for this man!
 Mober5/6/2017 8:14:40 PM GMT
Picking a random such bet from time to time for the minimum bet, isnt a big deal.
If you hit, you get paid big due to the multiplier.
Not an easy task, but going for this kind of bet or for double chance for example
in every bet makes it easier.
 pajalnick5/6/2017 11:50:00 PM GMT
It's great .... to solve all your financial difficulties in 10 seconds ..... maybe it's finite that this article is not all true and maybe this lucky player lost in general about the same amount ... ... but of course the news is smart

Once when I was playing at offline bookies i've put together a 14 fold acca with a bunch of sure thing (with plenty odds like 1.25 and under). It came together, yet did not make me a millionaire since I was playing with less than a euro.
 Gerimantas5/7/2017 8:29:40 AM GMT
Yes like bowie1984 tells in his story I too sometimes like to place accumulators from beey low odds to combine them into very good odds, I often place bets inly from 1.10 and maximum 1.15 when I think this is almost guaranteed win, but often it is mot that guaranteed Big Smile
 pochui5/7/2017 1:17:43 PM GMT
well throughout my gambling career i place lots of accumulators but the result was always the same, here's how i performed over the years:

6-7 fold accumulators - 100% failure rate
8-9 fold accumulators - 100% failure rate
10-11 fold accumulators - 100% failure rate
12+ fold accumulators - 100% failure rate

at least i know what word consistency means.
 dule-vu5/7/2017 2:29:28 PM GMT
when I see results from yesterdays and todays games at english football,I see how this man was lucky last week!everybody wins everybody,even who need points lose game and he choosed great week for betting!
 bowie19845/9/2017 5:16:05 PM GMT
It is messed up. The last couple of rounds in every major soccer leagues I just back teams which playing for not to be relegated or teams which playing for cup placement. Other than those it is usually a crapshoot since so.many players already thinking on their summer vacation or whatnot they just don't care.
