|Crying football fan|
One English guy who loves football and follows all the matches bet on all the Champions league 1/8 final matches. It wasn´t just a “win-draw-loss” bet, he tried to guess all the RESULTS of all the 1/8 final matches. The ticket for the bet cost him only 1Penny but the win could have been 1 million Pounds!!! What a bet! 1Penny → 1 million Pounds!
In the very beginning, it looked like a mission impossible. When he succeeded after the first day of 1/8 final nobody knew about him yet. Then after the second day with other 2 matches, when he guessed other 2 matches with exact results, he started to be popular, people were talking about him on the social networks, where he had posted his ticket. Many social networks users started to follow him and the guy became quite popular.
After 4 successful matches, a half of a dream was completed. The third day of CL 1/8 final matches – again all the results were correct and the “lucky” man was very close the 1 million prize. Only 2 more matches left to complete the ticket. On of them was a Milan – Barca match, which was quite obvious that Barca was going to win…
|Sorry man, I will give you that 1 million…|
The fourth day of the Champions league 1/8 final is here, Galatasaray – Schalke 1:1, again correct BUT………..The last step is usually the hardest one and it was like this even now. FC Barcelona, the best club in the world according to many football experts for last 5 years more or less LOST the game against AC Milan. It was like a bad dream, everybody was very disappointed and sorry for him. The guy didn´t take it so seriously. He said he had spent just 1 Penny so it was not such a big deal for him, what is true but when you imagine that 1 million prize….At least, the man received something like a consolidation prize from the betting company. The company bought a trip to Barcelona for the second leg match Barca- Milan with accommodation and everything included for him and one more friend. It was very nice from the company but on the other hand, all this story was a great promotion for the company…
We wish good luck to the guy for the next time!!
