    Default Coral Affiliates - LAST MINUTE WINNER COSTS UNLUCKY PUNTER 175K

    It won't only be fans of Manchester United this morning that will be feeling the pain of their last-gasp, late-goal losing performance in the 3rd round of the FA Cup last night...

    LAST MINUTE WINNER AT OLD TRAFFORD COSTS UNLUCKY PUNTER 175,000 POUND JACKPOT

    An online punter missed out on a 175,000 payout this evening, after Wilfried Bony's last minute winner for Swansea against Manchester United denied the unlucky coral.co.uk customer a full house of 15 out of 15 winning football predictions.

    "The punter had correctly predicted the outcome of 14 out of 14 FA Cup matches on our unique Football jackpot pool bet, and required a draw at Old Trafford to land the jackpot of 187,922.10 for just a 1 stake, but Bony's 90th minute winner for the Welsh side proved to be heartbreaking for both the customer and Manchester United fans, although he did collect the consolation prize of 12,264.10 for getting 14 out of 15 correct," said Coral's David Stevens.

    "We weren't able to contact the customer before the final match, so we don't yet know if he was aware how close he came to landing the jackpot, we almost hope for his sake he didn't, as that final goal at Old Trafford would have been rather painful!" added Stevens.

    *Winning selections:

    Bolton v Blackpool Home win
    Brighton v Reading Home win
    Bristol City v Watford Draw
    Everton v QPR Home win
    Middlesbrough v Hull Away win
    Newcastle v Cardiff Away win
    Norwich v Fulham Draw
    Southampton v Burnley Home win
    Stoke v Leicester Home win
    West Brom v Crystal Palace Away win
    Yeovil v Leyton Orient Home win
    Arsenal v Tottenham Home win
    Nottingham Forest v West Ham Home win
    Derby v Chelsea Away win
    Manchester United v Swansea Needed a draw

    He will be sick, that's a once in a lifetime bet....but the 12k will soften it...and with a bit of luck he was placed to lay it off if that last game was after the others and he knew what was riding and how to do it.

    If a late goal had cost YOU 175,000.00 on an accumulator bet, who is the VERY LAST person you would want to see when you went to collect your cheque for 'just' 12k?

    Yup..., that's right!
