Patience can be an important virtue in all aspects of life, and the craft of betting is no different sometimes.
One of Premier Bet’s players recently found this out for themselves, with their 16-fold accumulator finally winning on Saturday September 2: a whole nine days after they first placed the bet.
Our Big Winner’s accumulator was already 25% complete on the first day, with all four of their selections in the Europa League winning, including Slavia Prague leaving it late to beat Zorya Luhansk.
Across the following few days, Manchester United, Barcelona and Athletic Bilbao all came from behind to defeat Nottingham Forest, Villarreal and Real Betis respectively, while Freiburg scored a 96th-minute winner against Werder Bremen to keep the bet alive.
For most players, the bet would have ended there. However, this player decided to add on two more selections from the following weekend’s action to boost their odds.
The two selections were Tottenham to beat Burnley, which Spurs comfortably managed despite also falling behind early on, and Both Teams To Score in the Premier League’s evening kick-off between Brighton and Newcastle.
With Brighton looking surprisingly comfortable at 3-0 up courtesy of teenage sensation Evan Ferguson’s hat-trick, our player’s bet looked set to fall at the final hurdle in agonising fashion.
However, as he does so often, Newcastle’s Callum Wilson came off the bench to score late on. This will almost certainly prove to be a meaningless consolation goal as far as Brighton’s or Newcastle’s seasons go, but it was an absolutely sensational one for our Big Winner, who scooped $18,621.80 from a stake of $8.35.
Good things truly do come to those who wait! Once again, this shows the different strategies bettors can take when making their selections, whether it be utilising different markets (including our new Bet Builder tool) or spanning bets across multiple days as in this case.
This was far from the only Big Winner we had last weekend, too, with one player bagging $10,214.36 from $3.18 on a 15-fold 1X2-only accumulator. Another winner landed $2318.95 from just $0.31, demonstrating that you can stake incredibly small with us yet still win big.
