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."

ah, Fergie is just having another pop at Rooney. He just wants to put him down whenever he gets a chance. Rooney is by far the best English player. Carrick is not far behind, mind. However, by elevating Carrick like that, Sir is having a dig at Wayne. Fergie is well-known for mind games like that. Good to see he's still feisty.
