The problem with most gamblers is they have no discipline. When they get hot or (even worse) cold, they load up on dumb bets to try to capitalise on a ‘heater’ or win it all back quickly. Poor suckers. But one Aussie gambler appears to be not only incredibly lucky, but incredibly patient.
Australian online sports betting website Tab.com.au shared a remarkable — and totally random — successful multi bet that was nearly three months in the making. In correctly hitting on three sporting events starting with Brooks Koepka winning the US PGA Championship in August, this unidentified person turned $10 into $76,440! Check out his wide-ranging (both in dates and sports) picks:
For the uninitiated, the price of each bet are the odds, which when multiplied explain why he got 7,640 times what he wagered. Not a bad ROI, huh? But it was a willing to wait for a payoff that would impress even the most savvy of investors.
Koepka won the first leg of this wacky multi on August 12 when he held off a charging Tiger Woods to claim a third Major title. But then this mystery punter waited for the final two legs. And then waited some more. The second part, popular Melbourne horse race the Caulfield Guineas, came a full two months later on October 13. And then after nearly another month, Cross Counter won the Melbourne Cup this past Tuesday to complete this triumphant triumvirate of bets. Wow.
What perception. And again, what patience. This guy waited a quarter of a year to complete a bet. Now I want to know which cricket Test matches this summer he has already ‘multi’d’ with Tiger Woods winning the 2019 Masters.
