Following a sensational £222,154 correct score Cash Out over the weekend, we decided to take a look back at some other incredible wins by Colossus players.
MLT’s Timely Cash Out
Syndicate Captain MLT demonstrated fantastic leadership by executing a perfectly timed Cash Out during the Cheltenham Festival. It was Gold Cup day and he, alongside 77 others, combined to fill a £672 Syndicate in a bid to tackle the Rollover Place 6 Pool that had reached an imposing £101,968.
After four legs things were going brilliantly. The Syndicate had landed multiple places across the first three legs before successfully napping Al Boum Photo and Anibale Fly in the Gold Cup, who finished first and second respectively. An impressive feat given that none of the top four in the betting managed to place.
MLT was then presented with a hugely tempted Cash Out offer of £30,487 for the ticket. Wanting to guarantee a healthy profit, he opted to take 50% of the offer which amounted to £15,243, securing each contributor 22x their original stake.
It proved to be an outstanding decision. Ucello Conti and Caid Du Berlais both finished outside the three places on offer in the race and the ticket was beaten! An example of an extremely well judged Cash Out from MLT.
Turned out the cash out was a good call but so close to £101k! We walk away with £15k thanks to the cash out offer from Colossus that the Tote don’t offer #wewintogether

TwoPoundPunt Syndicate Close To Huge Asian Handicap Win
When TwoPoundPunt led his Syndicate’s charge against the Asian Handicap Pick 20 pool in March 2017, nobody was anticipating the drama that would unfold.
There were 191 contributors in total whose £1,024 ticket was going beautifully in the £250,000 pool, successfully navigating the first 19 legs and leaving just Chelsea vs. Watford, where they needed the Blues to win by two or more having backed -1.5 goals.
TwoPoundPunt had already accepted a partial Cash Out offer of £8,600 the night before, meaning his followers knew that they were guaranteed a profit regardless of what happened, though there was still huge money at stake.
Word got out that the Syndicate were playing for £200,000 and it was the talk of Twitter. Even the Racing Blogger sent a video message wishing them luck before the match began.
📺 I’m wishing all of You involved with @TwoPoundPunt Syndicate The BEST of Luck tonight 🎁🏆

Chelsea’s captain, leader, legend John Terry opened the scoring in the 22nd minute, sending the Syndicate wild. However, the joy was shortlived as a calamitous mistake from Terry two minutes later allowed Etienne Capoue to equalise.
12 minutes later though, Cesar Azpilecueta drove a low shot into the far corner to restore Chelsea’s advantage at half time, the Syndicate were just a goal away from glory.
With Chelsea firmly in the driving seat, the next question was what the half time Cash Out offer would look like, and it didn’t disappoint…

As you can see in the comments, opinion was split between Cashing Out and letting the offer ride, so TwoPoundPunt found a middle ground by accepting a further 20% which amounted to £29,874. The group now had £38k in the bank with £150,000 still on the table, a fantastic position to be in.
The second half resumed and Chelsea made it 3-1. For the first time, the Syndicate were in a winning position but once again, Chelsea were punished almost immediately after the restart and Daryl Janmaat scored for Watford two minutes later to make it 3-2.
With 16 minutes to go the ticket looked doomed as Stefano Okaka scored a third Watford goal to bring The Hornets level, a crushing blow. However, the drama didn’t end there.
In the 88th minute Cesc Fabregas put Chelsea 4-3 up and Watford defender Sebastian Prödl was sent off for a second yellow card. The board went up and there were five minutes of injury time to play, the Syndicate were praying for a winner.
Chelsea huffed and puffed but couldn’t blow the door down for a fifth time and the match ended 4-3. However, with Consolation Prizes added to Cash Out offers, the group claimed a total return of £44,433, a wonderful effort!
Twice in in a few weeks but can’t wait to see what you lot and I can do over an entire season, bring it on https://t.co/sYgmc7dIyh

Betway Ghana Player Secures Six Digit Cash Out Win
A Betway Ghana player, Kwame Fosuhene, made Ghanain news after securing an enormous win in March 2017, accepting a GHS990,650 (£173,763) Cash Out offer from a GHS4 (£0.71) ticket. However, despite winning the life-changing amount, was he left with mixed emotions after Cashing Out early?
Playing the 1X2 Pick 15 football pool, Kwame was playing just a single line and, incredibly, correctly predicted the outcome of the first 14 matches on the ticket. Once again, the fate of the ticket rested on a Chelsea victory, as they travelled to West Ham in the deciding leg.
Presented with the huge £173,763 Cash Out offer, it was too much for Kwame to turn down and took the entire amount. He then watched as Chelsea went on to beat West Ham 2-1, meaning that had he held on, he would have ultimately won GHS1,600,000 (£283,990).
However, with £173,763 safely in the bank, he was still rewarded handsomely for an absolutely inspired ticket so hopefully won’t have minded too much.
The look of a man who just got GHC990,650.00 richer! Kwame Fosuhene with the cheque that changed his life. Congratulations Kwame! pic.twitter.com/WkExcREVvU
