A lucky Ladbrokes punter has turned £4.29 into over £56,000 with the best cash out bet of the season.
During half-time in the Manchester Derby, the online customer correctly predicted Man United would go on to win the game 2-0 at 12/1 - one of three correct score predictions made having also backed Chelsea to beat Everton 2-0 on Monday night at 13/2.
The punter, who wishes to remain anonymous, also guessed the Bundesliga game between Arminia Bielefeld and Union Berlin would finish goalless at 13/2, and also correctly predicted the results of West Ham vs Leeds and Athletic Bilbao vs Granada thanks to a 91st-minute winner for the home side.
Prior to Monday night's games, the punter saw the bet stay alive thanks to a 96th minute equaliser in the Sampdoria vs Cagliari game, with the customer backing the draw after Cagliari took an early lead.
But it was Monday night's Inter Milan vs Atalanta game which had the plucky punter sweating. Having already landed seven of his eight legs, he backed Inter to win 2-0 at 11/1 but opted to cash out to the cool sum of £56,532.52.
It turned out to be a brilliant decision as Inter failed to add to their tally, meaning had the customer have let the bet ride, he'd have won nothing.
Ladbrokes spokesman Alex Apati told FreeTips.com: "In-play bets, correct scores, last-minute goals and the savviest cash out we've seen all season, this bet really did have it all."
