The operator will reward the highest odds success with £1 million

“Inspired or downright lucky” was the question on BetVictor’s lips after a World Cup punter took charge of its ‘Million Pound Bet’ competition with a successful 17,042/1 selection.

The operator was left “speechless” as the #PriceItUp powered bet included the exact amount of corners for both Uruguay and Portugal, the correct final score, and zero yellow cards for Uruguay’s notoriously aggressive Atletico Madrid-based defence.

The South American side progressed to the quarter finals of the FIFA World Cup in Russia with a 2-1 win thanks to a brace from Paris Saint Germain (PSG) striker Edinson Cavani.

The win was a significant boost on the previous competition leader, a 12,720/1 bet on Brazil versus Serbia which included Paulinho and Thiago Silva to score, Brazil to win 2-0 and Nemanja Matic to be yellow carded, as well as over over 6.5 Brazil corners and over 2.5 Serbia corners.

Before the tournament started on 14 June, the online bookmaker promised to give away the sum of £1 million to the customer who landed the highest odds win from a minimum £1 stake.

As well as the £1,000,000 overall jackpot, BetVictor is also rewarding the highest odds successes with a daily prize of £5,000 on each of the 25 match days throughout the tournament.

Totally Gaming says: The Million Pound Bet has given a significant boost to BetVictor’s already popular #PriceItUp product, which allows customers to combine up to 10 individual selections in a single match accumulator bet. The competition doesn’t stipulate that selections must come from #PriceItUp markets, but so far all of its leading entries have utilised the product.
