If you caught the new BetVictor TV ad which aired before the Grand National this past weekend, you’ll have seen the message ‘Embrace the Unpredictable’ – well, one customer did exactly that- and an incredible weekend of gambling left him better off to the tune of over £75,000, thanks to Jay Rodriguez’s Golden Goal!


Jay Rod – The Man

73rd Minute – The Minute

Man Utd 0 – 1 West Brom – The Match


What makes this week’s winners story even more incredible, is that the customer in question had only signed up with BetVictor on the morning of the Grand National to back Tiger Roll and take advantage of our enhanced 6 places on the race, which means not only did he scoop our Golden Goal double rollover- but he managed to find himself a winner at 14/1 on Saturday too!

When Sunday came around, the customer actually decided against watching the Red Devils of Manchester United take on lowly West Brom in favour of the Moto GP on Eurosport, and thanks to  72 bleak, goalless minutes of football, you’d have thought he’d made the right decision! However, when Jay Rod’s header found the back of the net, the push message he received letting him know that he was in the running for the huge prize was enough of a reason to switch over- little did he know at that stage, but he was, in fact, the holder of the only live prediction- a goal at either end would have led us to a triple rollover and a £100k prize pool!


So 17 nervous minutes of football ensued for the Liverpool FC fan, not to mention of course the mandatory 4 minutes of Fergie Time (Mourinho Minutes? Is that a thing yet?) – in which bottom of the table West Brom defended valiantly against a bewildered Man Utd side, 16/1 shots looking like great value under the tutelage of interim manager and club legend Darren Moore (who incidentally has as many wins after 180 minutes as a manager as Pardew managed in 6 months at the helm)- and luckily, dances a lot less. But it was not to be, the Baggies made the most of 30
