Russia 2018 Punter lands $85,000 with three correct score bets


A punter has earned a big payday with $85,000 won with three correct score bets. 

With a stake of $20, the punter predicted correctly the score of three Russia 2018 matches with the odds of the multi at $4,284.

The punter had Japan to beat Colombia 2-1, Senegal to beat Poland 2-1 and host nation Russia to pick up a 3-1 over Egypt.

The early red card to Colombian player Carlos Sanchez meant that Japan had the numerical advantage as they ensured the first match went the way of the punter’s prediction.

There was a bit of drama in the Senegal match as the Polish team piled on the pressure late on in search of an equalizer that would have broken the heart of the punter.

The final match between Russia and Egypt also had a tense finale as the hosts led 3-0. The punter must have been very nervous as Mohamed Salah stepped up to score from the penalty spot the final goal required for the massive payout with 17 minutes left.

There was another punter who placed the exact same bet with a $30 stake but chose to cash out for a $19,380 payout when it could have been a massive $109,050 payday.
