In the final minutes of the Liverpool and Chelsea game on Sunday had to be a nail biting experience for the 41 year old man from Malta who needed Liverpool to cinch his 585k victory. He predicted the results of 19 games in staggering 683,738 to 1 odds. What is more amazing is he won it all on a 86p bet!

William Hill’s bookmaker Graham Sharpe said the win was “extraordinary” commenting on the incredible odds to win. Sharpe added: “He wasn’t a Liverpool fan before, but he tells us he is now.”

"Football punters were already celebrating the biggest winning weekend in living memory as all the best fancied teams in the Premier League, Championship, Leagues One & Two, Blue Square, SPL and William Hill Scottish Cup turned out be winners".

"This late winner in the final game of the weekend left us feeling about as cheerful as under-pressure Chelsea boss Andre Villas Boas. The weekend as a whole was football betting's equivalent of racing's Dettori day in 1996, when Frankie rode all seven winners at Ascot, costing the industry almost £50million.

Punters backing long-odds accumulative bets like the one described here were the biggest winners, most of them collecting four and five figure sums from modest stakes."
