The World Cup has just ended, with a victory for our French neighbors, who eliminated us in the semi-finals, but who do not deserve this title and their place now on the roof of the world. Just as do not demerit the 3 Parisian friends who followed this tournament and who especially won 3 million euros by betting on 15 matches on the 2018 World Cup.
The World Cup and the bettors
The World Cup will have made many happy, whether on the side of the supporters, the players, the team of the Blues … but also on the side of the punters who gave themselves to their heart’s content and who managed to make winning predictions … The World Cup, like the next Ligue 1 cup or all national and international competitions, continue to attract punters of all kinds, eager to change their life or supplement their end of the month by winning a nice amount of money. This world event, which took place from June 14 to July 15 and which therefore ended yesterday, totally caused an unprecedented craze in the world of gambling and betting, allowing sports betting operators to boost considerably their turnover. We told you last month about this case of a player who won € 259,532.09 by betting on 12 World matches. Today history is repeating itself, but for 3 French people, Parisians more precisely, who all have 3 bet in common on 15 matches of Russia 2018, then winning the biggest amount of this year.
Luck struck on the side of France
It is therefore undoubtedly these three players who will be the recorders this month in terms of jackpot won on a sports bet. Luck indeed goes to three Parisian friends who won the sum of three million euros. This is one of the highest jackpots since the start of the World Cup, according to the Française des Jeux. It all started on June 15, one day after the first match of this World Cup. Three friends decide to go to the tobacco shop in the 4th arrondissement of the capital to validate a grid on the group matches of the FIFA World Cup.
They will then make rather surprising stakes for this start of the world, but which will pay off since in order to put all the chances of winning big on their side, they quite simply bet on the defeats of some of the favorites of the competition. . Thus, they had seen right by betting on a defeat of Germany against Mexico, but also on a defeat of Colombia against Japan or Brazil against Switzerland. They will even go so far as to predict Argentina’s draws against Iceland, seeing their surprising picks be heavily rewarded, as they actually had 15 good predictions. This allows them to surpass our case of last month and therefore to win this damn good prize in the process.
A surprising world that brings luck
The daily press Le Parisien, tells us that the trio used to fill their Loto Foot grid as one man. But this time, the 3 friends took a lot of risk since they worked together to finally make the decision to bet on the 15 matches of the World Cup. Unheard of luck which then salutes this daring, and which pays off since all their forecasts… were all correct without exception!
But if it was far from being won in advance, from the first days this competition was however one of all the surprises, and especially not that of the favorite teams who especially proved the punters right, like this humiliation of the ‘Germany, defending champion, by South Korea and the elimination of the biggest favorite teams from the list of these 3 Parisians who will therefore begin the next few weeks with a well-deserved vacation.
But we must admit that most sports betting sites have been very upset, with surprising odds that followed a little this astonishing rate of evictions of teams yet classified as favorites, tumbling down at full speed before the quarters and feed by outsiders that nobody really saw pass the round of 16. These are therefore totally unexpected results that made the happiness of daring punters during this 2018 World Cup. Selections that baffled a good number of punters, but not at all these three player friends who, however, it must be admitted, really lucky. They will therefore have the opportunity to share 1 million each while the counters have exploded this weekend.
