Chinese restaurant owner wins big on midweek football
The year of the sheep has begun with an unforgettable piece of fortune for a Chinese restaurant owner in Dunstable, who claimed an £81,611.20 win from a free bet with Ladbrokes.
The player, who wishes to remain anonymous, used £110 worth of free bets on a single 13-fold accumulator on Wednesday evening’s football, which proved to be a wise decision.
In the UEFA Champions League, Barcelona’s away win over Manchester City and Juventus’ home triumph against Borussia Dortmund were correctly predicted, while teams in the Sky Bet Championship, Sky Bet League One and Vanarama Conference all contributed with victories.
The player, who is in his 50s, told Ladbrokes: "This is the first time I've won big; all I did is picked the teams I like.
“I'm going to celebrate by going to Hong Kong. Maybe I'll try my luck at the races there. I definitely think I won thanks to the New Year luck."
