Instead of huge profits, the only thing left for the unlucky bettor to do in the New Year was to fret.

It’s only a few days into the year, but many bettors are already banging their heads against the wall. Just think of the darts world championship, where surprises came, although it was the tournament favourite who lifted the trophy. So 16-year-old genius Luke Littler failed to reach the top, even though there were several tickets circulating on the internet with brave bettors predicting his eventual success before the tournament even started, at odds of 200-300 times, depending on the bookies. These bets were eventually thrown away, as was the following line, which was placed by an island betting company between the two holidays.

The player had spent £10, or roughly £4,400, on the following selector, who had drawn the correct result of two English Premier League and two Scottish Premiership matches, with an expected payout of £102,600!

Of course, combos like this go green every year, but the unlucky bettor was still just one goal short of a miraculous win of around £45 million. In the Hibernian-Hearts derby, the visitors won 1-0 instead of 2-0, and they also missed a penalty early in the game. Although Hearts only drew level at the very end of the game, the win was still incredibly close, with the bookmaker commenting on Twitter, “I will never forgive Hearts.”


The people of the internet naturally shared the pain of the unlucky recipient. “Holy sh@t, that’s brutal..” wrote one Twitter user. “Also, that missed penalty is going to bring some sleepless nights,” commented another. “This is one of the worst I’ve ever seen. I feel your pain, even if the Hearts goal came late” – supportive comments like this and more flooded the post and let’s admit it, it’s not hard to feel for the bettor who, instead of a gigantic win, only has one good story left for the New Year.
