Friday the 13th is considered an unlucky date in the calendar in many parts of the world, but that was certainly not the case for some of Premier Bet‘s players, with plenty of Big Winners landing profit on the day.
Indeed, these winners all showed that international breaks in football aren’t always boring, as they enjoyed a thrilling ride on the way to massive returns! Sign up to Premier Bet today to claim our generous Sports Welcome Bonus offer as well as your chance to become a Big Winner.
⚽ Friday’s Big Winners 💰
One player proved themselves to be a real Nostradamus, with their outrageous five-fold landing them huge returns of $1,045.76 from a tiny stake of only $0.60. Their selection strategy was unorthodox to say the least, as they backed four international friendly matches to finish as draws at both half-time and full-time, as well as Malaysia to beat India by two goals exactly.
Seemingly anticipating plenty of draws from friendly games with less incentive for either team to win, our punter was proved correct, with Saudi Arabia vs Nigeria, New Zealand vs DR Congo, Iraq vs Qatar and Equatorial Guinea vs Burkina Faso all ending in stalemates. Nottingham Forest striker Chris Wood converted an injury-time penalty to claim a 1-1 draw for New Zealand against DR Congo, and help our player’s bet win in the process!
Meanwhile, in the unofficial Merdeka Tournament’s semi-final, Malaysia established a 4-2 lead against India from just after the hour mark. Unlike our Big Winner, who knew a late goal for either side would have ruined their bet, Malaysia’s nerves appeared minimal as they comfortably held on.
On the flipside, one of our other players fancied plenty of goals among the international fixtures, backing Both Teams To Score in seven matches and Over 2.5 Goals in three more. This 10-fold scooped returns of $1,604.20 from slightly higher stakes of $3.56.
This bettor also had Wood’s late penalty to thank for their winnings. In even more dramatic fashion, Cian Ashford of Cardiff City scored a 96th-minute equaliser for Wales Under-21s against Czech Republic U21s, meaning all seven BTTS selections had a green tick associated with them.
The 10-fold’s only other close call came in the huge Netherlands vs France clash in Euro 2024 qualifying, with our bettor predicting Over 2.5 Goals. France looked to have killed the game at 2-0 up, but international debutant Quilindschy Hartman marked his special occasion with a late consolation goal, which had more meaning for our Big Winner than either team’s qualification hopes!
⚽ Saturday’s Big WInners 💰
On Saturday, one player mixed and matched international games with club football, correctly backing Over 1.5 Goals in 18 matches to win total returns of $2,395.57 from a small stake of $3.21.
Plenty of these matches saw only two goals scored, with the most dramatic moment coming between Ukraine and North Macedonia in a crucial Euro 2024 qualifying game.
With Ukraine leading 1-0 in their adopted home of Prague for the day, time was running out for North Macedonia, as well as our punter, who needed another goal to be scored. Substitute Oleksandr Karavayev duly obliged to score only his second goal in 47 caps, reaffirming Ukraine’s hopes of reaching next summer’s major tournament.
