A superb end to 2018 for the below punter who placed a £4 bet into our £1,000,000 Correct Score Premier League Pick 6 and went on to win a total of £53,837.
A series of Cash Outs were made as they sold 90% of their ticket during the pool, but their ticket went on to win and, crucially, they left 10% untouched which was worth £50,018 to the customer at the end of the pool – more than 13 times the total value of their Cash Outs!
The customer placed a modest £4 ticket shortly before kick off at 15:00 on Saturday, staking at £1/line, that was shooting for a possible £500,000.
Legs 1, 2 and 3 all ran concurrently and, to some degree, were friendly scorelines for punters. Abdoulaye Doucore’s 82nd minute equaliser for Watford will have caught this punter’s attention as they now needed a Fulham goal to stay alive in the pool.
Step up Aleksandar Mitrovic, whose stoppage time winner sent Craven Cottage into a frenzy and our friend here into the next leg. The customer decided to Cash Out 40% of their ticket for £145; cementing £141 profit with 3 legs left to play and just single selections in each of those legs. Probably a wise decision… right?
Leg 4 was a treat in the form or Liverpool vs Arsenal. This is a fixture usually ridden with goals. Prior to this edition, 8 of the last 12 had served up enough goals to merit an ‘Other’ scoreline.

Our customer had gone for ‘Other home win’ in Liverpool vs Arsenal (they needed Liverpool to score 4 or more goals and win the game). Arsenal became the first team in 2018 to take the lead at Anfield in the Premier League courtesy of Ainsley Maitland Niles. But 2 goals in minute from Firmino, a Mane goal and a Salah penalty on the stroke of half time meant Liverpool headed into the break already 4-1 up. Another penalty in the second half – this time converted by Firmino who claimed his hat-trick – embedded further misery on the Gunners as Liverpool ran out 5-1 winners.
Another Cash Out, this time taking 20% for a further £374, had secured a total of £515 profit on their £4 ticket.
After sleeping on it, they took another 10% on Sunday morning (£187) before Crystal Palace took on Chelsea in leg 5.
The Blues ran out 1-0 winners at Selhurst Park thanks to N’golo Kante’s second half strike. They were through to the final leg!
Their new offer was £4,667 and they would take 20% of that sum, £3,111, before Burnley kicked off against West Ham. That meant they had now secured £3,814 profit on their £4 effort and had the chance at a further £50,000 dividend… if Burnley won 2-0 against the Hammers. You would have said that was unlikely on recent form, but 2 first half goals from Burnley put them in a good position. Luckily there were no more goals as the ticket won it’s £50,000 dividend (along with £18 in Consolation money in the 3/6, 4/6 and 5/6 pots).
A brilliant end to the year for this customer and a huge well done to them from all of us here at Colossus.
