Accidental bookie basher hits 500/1 punt
One Manchester United fan enjoyed their dismal 4-0 defeat to MK Dons, turning £2.50 into £1,250 by accidentally picking the 500/1 scorecast.
20-year-old Holly Griffiths had meant to follow a friend’s advice and back United to win 4-0.

Holly told the Daily Mail she hadn't even watched the match and only realised what was happening ten minutes before the end of the game.
She plans to buy a horse.
Paddy Power was able to make light of the huge odds, probably because the upset also killed thousands of accumulators.
