Anonymous, 2014

Amount won: £650,000

A punter from London turned £100 into £650,000 with a very bold bet. With just 20 minutes left on the clock of Saturday’s 3pm games, the brave punter put eight £10 sevenfold accumulators on alongside a £20 eightfold accumulator on. By 5.45pm they’d earned themselves a huge jackpot.

Anonymous, 2011

Amount won: £585,000

An anonymous fan from Malta bagged over half a million with his first 18 games going perfectly. The last game was between Chelsea and Liverpool with the former going in as favourites.

Turning 80p into £585,000, what a bet.

Great bookmaker and odds. Been playing with them for while, if you are good player they treat you well!
Took my real money when it stated I was…Took my real money when it stated I was playing with my bonus money. At no point did I click to play with real money. Deposited £200 to receive £200 bonus. Continuous loses of my bonus money on the spins led me to blackjack (£275 in my account) I placed 2 £25 bets and lost. I tried to withdraw my real money only to see my account has been reduced to £25. At this point they conveniently switched my loses from bonus money to real money.After 1hr on live chat we move on by emails. 4 days later a reply from customer service that if you place a bet higher than £10 (which I placed 2 £25 bets on blackjack) you lose your bonus (£200) clause 10.1.Honestly what absolute nonsense, what kind of casino limits your bets at £10? Absolute scam
Joined up are a promo email and then they suspended my account mid hedge, Cost me £50 which when I told them they didn't give a dam. Very very poor Customer Service. Avoid at all costs
