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 [...]   Read more » Man wins 50,000 after picking 15 games at random just for a 2.50 bet

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.

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

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.

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.

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...

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.

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

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.

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.

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

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.

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.
