It was heartcahe for one Sky Bet punter on Wednesday night after he was denied a £29,000 windfall from a £1 bet thanks to Nottingham Forest’s 97th minute third goal against Newcastle.

The bet has since gone viral on Twitter and it turns out the punter also placed a Lucky 15 with the same four selections – three won so he turned his £3 stake into £725. However, he tweeted “Dont even feel like wins after what happened last night.”


The bet in question was a four-fold correct score accumulator and the selections in the Everton vs Rotherham, Millwall vs Plymouth and Rwading vs Watford matches all landed. He just needed a 2-1 Nottingham Forest win to complete the bet, and when Forest retook the lead in the 94th minute it looked like the bet would land, however, with Newcastle chasing an equaliser, Forest went back up the pitch and scored a third goal with the last kick of the match to win 3-1.


Here is the Tweet of the betting slip:


it was a good night on the whole for the Twitter user (@BigT_14) after he landed £725 from his 20p lucky 15, and another £605 from a £20 double where he backed a request-a-bet double across the Forest vs Newcastle and Everton vs Rotherham matches. You can see these winning bets below.

Danny may not have scooped a £29,000 win, but if he keeps placing outrageous bets like this, it might not be long before he takes the bookies to the cleaners!
