REQUESTABET has been mentioned by a few punters in recent weeks with the likes of Craig Alves and Harry Baines getting involved.
The concept is you come up with your own bet and ask for a price. Skybet then post some of them on their site and take bets.
One lucky SkyBet punter was celebrating for the second time in 48 hours on Wednesday night as Sergio Aguero’s Champions League hat-trick prompted two bumper requestabet payouts in a row. The combined price for these two markets would have been a massive 37,925-1.
On Monday Liam Fitzpatrick tweeted the request to SkyBet for Everton to win 3-0 and Romelu Lukaku to score a hat-trick at Sunderland which duly returned at odds of 300-1.
Liam returned to try his luck again ahead of Wednesday’s rearranged Champions League clash between Manchester City and Borusia Monchengladbach and again he beat the bookies with his requestabet for Aguero to score a hat-trick and City to win 4-0 coming in at 125-1.
Liam’s Everton requestabet also caught the eye of many other punters on Monday night after SkyBet had priced up the market, ultimately costing the bookmaker more than £450,000.
SkyBet spokesman Sandro Di Michele said: “Lightning has certainly struck twice for this very lucky customer. To get two winning bets at such big prices in a couple of days of each other is unbelievable so fair play to him.”
If you’ve had a great idea for a bet or can’t find odds for a selection on out site, get in touch via twitter. Just tweet @skybet and #RequestABet with the details of the bet, and we will try and get your request on site.
Harry has already posted his requestabet for tonight’s Chelsea v Liverpool game and he can remind us what it is here.
