Worst cash out ever? Bettor could have won £6,170 from £5 bet… but cashed out for £3 | The Sun

IF you're squeamish or afraid of horror stories… look away now.

Because one unlucky punter had an absolute nightmare this weekend after cashing in a £6,170 winning acca for just £3.04

This Sky Bet customer backed an audacious three-fold accumulator, predicting the results of Sunday's Premier League matches at odds of 1234/1.

This bettor placed £5 on Arsenal and Tottenham drawing 2-2 in the north London derby, along with Liverpool and Brighton to win their matches 3-1 against West Ham and Bournemouth.

Why? Why indeed.

The acca couldn't have started in a more perfect style with underdogs Bournemouth taking the lead against Brighton, who had won two of their last three matches 3-1.


Sky Bet

  • Arsenal 2-2 Tottenham – 12/1
  • Brighton 3-1 Bournemouth – 9/1
  • Liverpool 3-1 West Ham – 17/2

Stake: £5

Odds: 1234/1

Potential returns: £6,170

Cashed out for £3.04

All three matches ended 1-1 at the half-time whistle with this punter now requiring two unanswered goals for favourites Liverpool and Brighton – two of the league's top scorers.

They needed one goal each from Arsenal and Tottenham, who both obliged by the 55th-minute of their clash at the Emirates.

Kaoru Mitoma powered in a double to give Brighton a 3-1 lead, while Darwin Nunez and Diogo Jota both scored to give Liverpool a 3-1 result at Anfield.

It's unclear when the punter cashed out this winning ticket, but likely they decided to accept a £1.96 loss before or very soon after kick off.
