Sunday Pools Success - a 600% return.

Sunday was a much better day for football punting - and not JUST because Arsenal beat Manchester City 2-1 after extra-time to reach the FA Cup final ....

We had two pools tickets at Colossus Bets come good - the best of which was a five match 1X2 pool entry, where we have come through four games and received a cashout offer for over £200 - a good result for our initial £36 outlay.

The potential winnings if Newcastle United can beat Preston North End on Monday night is £340 - so we will NOT cashout and will let the bet ride - although we may do a bit of hedging at the bookmakers with an X2 wager to lock in a profit.

As you can see above - this ticket had plenty of safety options - and there were only two options that needed to be avoided in order to get to this cash stage - which is a 6 fold return on investment.

Of course not every pool does this well - it needs an upset or two to knock out other pools entries and as you can see above the Arsenal v Man City draw eliminated 3/4 of tickets, and then Crystal Palace's win at Liverpool knocked out 6/7 of the remaining tickets.

However, this ticket is a GREAT example of the potential value that we see in pools betting at Colossus Bets, where a carefully thought out strategy can provide a good payout.

You can follow our pools tickets options at our Colossus Bets Pools Section on the main site.
Good luck with YOUR punts this week.

UPDATE : The bet won - and returned the syndicate £340 for a stake of  £36 - congratulations to any and all readers who joined in.
