Edinburgh punter wins £101k on William Hill Scottish Cup
A William Hill online punter from Edinburgh has landed the bet of a lifetime. The canny Scottish punter placed a four-fold accumulator bet on last weekend's William Hill Scottish Cup and landed a whopping £101,200 for his troubles.
The punter's £100 accumulator resulted in the biggest ever individual payout in William Hill Scottish Cup history after all four teams won their first round ties by four goals or more.
Cove Rangers got the accumulator rolling by beating Glasgow University 4-0, Huntly then beat Newton Stewart 6-1, Culter beat Burnisland Shipyard 4-0 and Wick Academy beat Coldstream 9-1 to round off his mammoth payout.
‘This punter obviously had a crystal ball when making his selections,' said William Hill spokesman Tony Kenny, ‘To bet on four teams to win by four goals was a phenomenal leap of faith and we'd like to wish this shrewd Scotsman all the best with his new found fortune.'
Cove Rangers to beat Glasgow University by 4 or more goals @ 4/1
Huntly to beat Newton Stewart by 4 or more goals @ 9/2
Culter to beat Burntisland Shipyard by 4 or more goals @ 18/5
Wick Academy to beat Coldstream by 4 or more goals @ 7/1
Total Return £101,200
