That’s after an unnamed woman won a mighty £574,278.41 off a single £2 bet over the weekend.

The woman, who remains unidentified, placed the 12-game accumulator with William Hill across the Premier League and Championship fixtures last Saturday.

And what was her method behind her picks?

Simply by picking the teams based on the sound of the club’s name because she’s bored of having to listen to her husband and son watching football all weekend.

Heroic.

Carli Faulkner, the employee from William Hill’s Leysdown-on-Sea shop where the golden bet was placed, expressed her delight for the lucky woman.

Her bet slip contained some pretty bold predictions

“It is incredible that the lady got them all up. Usually customers laugh when they see a payout figure on the bottom of their slip like £574,000, but this just goes to show it can happen,” said Miss Faulkner.

“They will be having a cracking Christmas and I am delighted for them as it’s real girl power landing a bet like that.

“My biggest ever payout before this was around £25,000.”

Looking at her bet slip, Steve Cook was her knight in shining armour after his 92nd minute tap in proved the match winner for Bournemouth at Newcastle.

Never has a scrappy goal been more glorious.
