If you’re known to have a flutter once in a while, here’s a story to make you green with envy.

A 21-year-old has correctly predicted the results of 15 matches over FA Cup third round weekend, landing himself just over an incredible £300,000 in the process.

Having staked £96 in the online bet, it took the full first prize from Coral’s Football Jackpot.

The anonymous punter correctly predicted that Swansea would lose at Oxford United and that Bolton Wanderers would draw their game with Eastleigh. He also backed Eibar, Atletico Madrid and Sevilla to win their games in Spain.


“It’s a fantastic start to the New Year and it has come at a great time for me as I am in the process of moving house,” he explains in the Daily Mirror.

“I’m going to help my Dad with his mortgage and also try to have a nice holiday somewhere soon.”

“When I was looking through the games before the weekend, the one which I had a really good feeling about was Oxford who were up against Swansea. I really fancied an upset in that game and it proved to be the case.”

Here’s the incredible bet in full:

Bournemouth to beat Birmingham

Stoke to beat Doncaster

Eastleigh to draw with Bolton

Huddersfield to draw with Reading

Hull to beat Brighton

Manchester City to beat Norwich

Crystal Palace to beat Southampton

Watford to beat Newcastle

West Ham to beat Wolves

Sevilla to beat Athletic Bilbao

Oxford to beat Swansea

Tottenham to draw with Leicester

Atletico Madrid to beat Celta Vigo

Eibar to beat Espanyol
