Lucky punter WINS over £22k from a spectacular 30p bet

A lucky punter has hit the jackpot after placing a spectacular longshot bet with William Hill, netting an impressive £22,000 thanks to a 96th-minute winning goal, the total stake was 30p!

The bettor correctly predicted 13 results across the Championship, League One, and League Two, in what has been a highly unpredictable season in the Football League.

Despite the odds being stacked against them, the punter took a chance and placed an outside bet, resulting in odds of 74,600/1. Seven home wins, four away wins, and two draws were all correctly predicted, culminating in the kind of result that all punters dream of.

While some of the bets were safe choices, such as backing in-form Middlesbrough to beat Swansea and Bristol Rovers to beat League Two strugglers Forest Green, others were more daring.

The pick for Barrow’s home game with Sutton to end as a draw proved to be inspired, with just one shot on target coming in the entire match at Holker Street.

Meanwhile, in a battle of two League One mid-table sides, Exeter came from behind against Lincoln to win 2-1. However, the real drama came at the County Ground, where Carlisle snatched a 96th-minute winner to beat Swindon 2-1 and ensure the bet came in.

After the visitors took the lead through Jack Armer in the 51st minute, Tyrese Shade equalized for Swindon in the 80th minute, setting up a nail-biting finish that ultimately went in favour of the bettor.

The punter must have felt their chances of winning were slim, at best, but checking back later after the matches had finished on Saturday, they realized they had pulled off the miraculous to net a staggering £22,380.08.

This serves as a reminder that sometimes, taking a chance on a longshot bet can pay off in a big way, and that dreams do come true for those willing to take a risk.

Here is the full list of bets:

Bristol City vs Blackpool – 17/20
