British man won £500,000 from a single bet

    The UK is one of those countries where betting is a kind of religion. People place their bets whenever they can find an object for betting.

    For instance, country was on its toes when Kate and William welcomed their daughter and were choosing a nice name for her. Bookmakers reportedly accepted record number of bets on each island.

    When it was finally announced, bet UK was celebrating multiple wins for a few weeks. Because that was the easy one. How about more complicated cases?

    The biggest winner

    The biggest prize over the last 18 years was scooped recently by unnamed Manchester United fan.

    This desperate guy had his last 30 pounds and have not found a better way of using them as placing this pretty small sum on the next match of the team, that kicked off Manchester from yearly championship.

    He thought that if Bayern Munich were strong enough to defeat his favorite team, they would soon get the title. Moreover, it actually happened.

     This is not the first time this guy makes a fortune out nothing. 1999 he placed a bet of £2.50 when Manchester won Champions League final. His ratio was insane – 1,666,666-to-one. That single bet brought him over £150,000. After his first success, he promised to come back to that betting office and do them again.

    Since that time, his name is kept a secret. We only know that he is a hard-working family man who is a real Manchester United fan.
