Lucky Punter Wins £18,879 Off £2 Free Bet After France Thrash Switzerland At World Cup

Amazing return of speculative accumulator.

Check in to Argentina vs Iran

Ladbrokes have had to pay out almost £20,000 after one lucky punter won big using a £2 free bet.

The bet was placed as a six-fold on matches at the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil.

You can see the winning slip below. It may look as if Ladbrokes were offering ridiculously big odds, but that is because, in order to win each line, both teams had to score, as well as the selected team winning the game.

And they did – Brazil beat Croatia 3-1, Holland hammered Spain 5-1, Argentina edged past Bosnia 2-1, Belgium got the better of Algeria 2-1, Colombia saw off the Ivory Coast 2-1, before France completed the remarkable success with a 5-2 thrashing of Switzerland.

However, Switzerland will have made the punter sweat, having waited until the 81st minute to score their first consolation goal against France (pictured above).
