After another weekend of pools hosted by Colossus Bets, there was a notable big winner in our Pick 6 pool. It was a weekend to remember for this solo player as the full-time whistle blew at the San Siro. The 1-1 result meant that this player managed to turn £12 into an eye-watering £282,694. It could have been even higher without Cash Outs as the final dividend reached £909,091. Despite the final outcome, this player managed their risk well during the 6 legs.
Mahrez To the Rescue
It could have been so different had Mahrez not netted in the 91st minute to secure Leicester a 2-0 victory over Watford. The Algerians goal coupled with the score draw at the Olympic stadium and United’s 1-0 triumph over Burnley advanced this ticket into the 4th leg with a healthy Cash Out offer on the table.
Decisions, Decisions ?
Before the Sheffield Wednesday vs Cardiff game kicked off, the cash out offer was at £7,510.10. Unable to risk walking away with nothing this player cashed out 50% of their ticket for £3,755. It proved to be the wrong decision as a dull affair at Hillsborough ended scoreless advancing the ticket to the 5th leg on Sunday. This lead to another Cash Out offer of £15,226 for 50% of the ticket. The decision was made early Sunday morning with 20% sold for £6,090 leaving the final 30% of the ticket for the remaining legs.
The £250k Goal
With just under £10k in the bank from Cash Outs, a close fought scrappy 1-1 draw between Southampton and Tottenham advanced this ticket to the final leg of our Pick 6 pool. The remaining cash out offer was ignored as the final fixture between Inter Milan and Roma kicked off. With only 1-1 covered it would have been a nail-biting final 10 minutes for this punter. Roma led 1-0 before Uruguayan forward Matias Vecino netted in the 86th minute to secure the final leg of the Pick 6 pool and deliver this very happy player a juicy £280k+ win.
