A customer of Betway had a weekend to remember, after a collection of random selections helped him scoop £25,000 on the bookmakers free to enter ‘4 to Score’ game.
John Bolton, 32, from Llanharan, South Wales, saw his four picks, Plymouth Argyle, Morecambe, Eastleigh and Brackley Town, all find the back of the net within 15 minutes of kick off.
The Manchester United fan, who has stated the money will be used for an upcoming holiday as well as a deposit for a house, said: “What an incredible start to the New Year, I was absolutely speechless when I got the call. I didn’t have much time so I used the randomise button to pick my selections.
“I’ve played 4 to Score a few times this season and the closest I’ve been is two correct selections, but I really enjoy playing the game.
“I’m going on a driving holiday to the US in a couple of months and this will really help with the spending money. I was also looking for a deposit to put down on a house, so I’ll be using the rest of the money for that. For me it’s life-changing.”
Betway’s 4 to Score offering gives punters the chance to predict first side to net in the 3 o’clock kick offs across England’s top four leagues, The Premier League, Championship, League One and League Two, with a £25,000 windfall available for anyone correctly guessing.
However, due to the past weekend being seeing FA Cup action up and down the country, the four leagues on offer were League One, League Two, National League and National League North.
Betway’s Alan Alger, said: “What a fantastic start to 2018 for John. Just 15 minutes into Saturday afternoon’s football and he has scooped an incredible £25,000.
“We wish him all the best for his upcoming holiday and his house hunting when he comes back from America.”
