FOOTBALL BETTING : PUNTER MISSES OUT ON MILLION POUND WIN AFTER MILAN HANDBALL GOAL
The customer, from Wiltshire in the UK, had entered Coral’s free to enter “Win A Million” competition and having predicted the correct scores in the first six Champions League last sixteen matches, needed Schalke and Galatasaray to draw 1 v 1 and Barcelona to beat AC Milan 2 v 0.
The customer’s million pound dream was very much alive after 57 minutes with the Schalke game poised at 1 v 1 and Barcelona and AC Milan still goalless, but then Milan scored after following a blatant handball not spotted by the referee.
Simon Clare, Coral Spokesman said :
“This has been the most extraordinary rollercoaster for the poor customer as at half-time tonight the million pound dream was very much alive. Twitter was going absolutely crazy and the customer, @SimonTorresPike, was bombarded with good luck messages, but it wasn’t to be,” said .
“It has been such an incredible effort by the customer that we have offered him a consolation prize of a trip to Barcelona with a pal to watch the second leg. I imagine after their poor performance tonight he will almost certainly be cheering on AC Milan!!,”.
We recommend Coral to punters living in the United Kingdom and Ireland as a safe place to play - and these players will get a matched "free bet' up to £/€50!
