MANCHESTER, England, February 23, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- A lucky Betfred customer is celebrating after a 96th minute equaliser by Preston scooped him GBP49,000 for a total stake of just GBP17.50.
The website client placed a GBP10 accumulator and 15 x 50p fourfolds on seven of last night's domestic football matches...and in five of them, goals in the last 20 minutes turned the scoreline in his favour!
But the most dramatic turnaround came at the City Ground, where Billy Jones' leveller six minutes into stoppage time against Nottingham Forest secured the Betfred customer his big win.
His successful predictions were: Blackpool to beat Tottenham (10/3) Swansea to beat Coventry (6/5) Hull to beat Derby (7/4) Leeds-Barnsley draw (14/5) Norwich-Doncaster draw (10/3) Nottingham Forest-Preston draw (7/2) Scunthorpe to beat Sheffield United (6/4)
Betfred spokesman Jon Wilde said: "Things didn't look too promising for the customer at half-time but 45 minutes later he was in seventh heaven.
"We thought we'd had a good night with several results going our way, but the late goals changed things and we congratulate the big winner on a terrific achievement."
