Cisse’s Penalty Helps Punter Win Forty Grand!

11 years ago

As Papiss Cisse launched his penalty into the Gallowgate, little did he know that he was helping somebody win £40,000 on Sunday.

A punter had put £12 on correct scores in all four of Sunday’s matches and if Cisse had slotted his penalty home against Norwich it would have ruined somebody’s Sunday, thankfully the missed penalty didn’t spoil our Sunday either!

Needing all four results to come in, the Betfair customer correctly chose Manchester United to beat Liverpool 2-1, Spurs to beat QPR 2-1, Manchester City and Arsenal to draw 1-1 and of course Newcastle to beat Norwich 1-0.

The four correct scores netted the punter odds of 3,307.5/1, giving him a return of exactly £39,690 thanks to his £12 stake.

If you sign up to BetVictor then thanks to our offer you will get up to a £25 free matched bet. Even if you only like an occasional flutter on the football the big attraction with BetVictor is that if you win, then on most occasions you’ll get paid more than with other bookies.

For example, at the time of writing you could get 6-1 on Newcastle winning at Old Trafford with BetVictor, compared to 9-2 with Ladbrokes.

If you fancy Newcastle to keep a third clean sheet in a row in a goalless draw and take the Capital One Cup match into extra time, then 0-0 would pay 16-1 with BetVictor compared to 8-1 with Coral.

Having a bet on Newcastle is a bit of fun but it will be a lot more fun if you bet and win with BetVictor!
