One lucky BetVictor customer – who wishes to remain anonymous – began the New Year with a bang when his €12 football six-fold on Sunday returned €39,902 after a rollercoaster of a ride.


The customer from Ireland said:

“It was 11 hours of being on total tenterhooks, but after the third one I thought to myself this has a chance. In the last game (selection Celta Vigo +1 goal) Celta Vigo were 2-1 down and they were awarded a penalty – you won’t be surprised to hear I was swearing when they missed – then they equalised and I couldn’t believe my luck!”

BetVictor spokesperson Charlie McCann: “The Luck of the Irish? You bet! Where do we begin? With Deportivo’s 84th minute equaliser – Newport County’s 89th minute winner – Arsenal’s dodgy defending or Real Madrid’s late missed sitters.

What a way to start the New Year though and good luck to the customer in finding six winning selections on a day when some of us found it hard to pick one!”
