BRITAIN'S bookmakers are expecting a massive increase in football betting turnover tomorrow after the most punter-friendly football results in recent history cost the betting industry a reported £30million last weekend.

Thousands of customers across the country won sizeable four-figure sums for stakes of less than £10, with 25 Coral betting shop customers winning sums of between £10,000 and £89,000.

Coral are anticipating the huge national media and social media coverage of all these stories ofsuccessful punters will encourage more people than ever before to have a flutter on football on Saturday.

Spokesman Simon Clare said: “We suffered record losses on football last weekend that will live in the memory for a very long time.

“However we expect the tales of such an unprecedented number of successful will encourage anyone who’s had a flutter to have a small-stakes accumulator on this weekend’s football to try and emulate their success.

“Last weekend’s football results were almost as bad as they could be, as 15 of the 16 most popular teams won, so we are looking forward to a huge upsurge in bets on Saturday and just crossing our fingers that lightning doesn’t strike twice.”

Coral’s biggest single winner last weekend was John Sinclair from Acklington, Northumberland, who netted £40,600, after placing a £2 accumulator bet on Coral’s website with 18 winning selections.

An anonymous unemployed Scotsin a Coral shop in Prestonpans, East Lothian won £89,000 after correctly picking nine teams all to win to nil on the Winning Ways coupon.

Brixton customer Serge Ndjali Yalongo turned a £1 bet into £19,600 by selecting 16 winning results.

Some of the other amazing examples of last weekend’s big winners with Coral included a 58-year-old customer from Cardiff who netted £25,962 for a £25 bet, a 45-year-old punter from Huddersfield who won £17,621 for a £20 bet and another football punter from Hemel Hempstead claimed £11,581 for just a £2 bet.

And who was it who said stick to single!

      Steven, who said we were feeling sorry. I’m told it would have been much worse if Dundee and Peterhead had won – two of the most popular picks from Scotland.
