Sky Bet customer bags over quarter of a million on Tuesday's games

One lucky Sky Bet punter scooped over £256,000 on a unique football accumulator on Tuesday night, thanks to a stoppage time penalty.

David Lopez's 97th minute spot-kick for Brighton against Blackburn completed the 1,027/1 shot as both teams scored (8/11), one quarter of an ambitious four-fold bet.

The punter, a 27-year-old from South London, also predicted three correct scores as Aston Villa beat Bradford 2-1 (15/2), Notts County defeated Oldham 1-0 (6/1) and Aldershot lost 2-1 at home to Northampton (9/1).

Just before Christmas, the same customer raked in a £172,000 progressive off a £25 stake on Deal or No Deal casino slot game on Sky Vegas.

Sky Bet's Dale Tempest said: "It's a truly remarkable coupon - at times like this you can only take your hat off to the punter.

"Correct scores are one of the trickiest markets even as a single, so the fact that he was spot-on with three on the one slip is hugely impressive, and the last-gasp penalty at Ewood Park was the icing on a very sizable cake."

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
