Published on: 14 November 2016

Sometimes you just get that winning feeling when you place a bet or two and everything just falls into place - just ask anybody who put money on Leicester City winning the 2015/16 Premier League.

One man from Coventry experienced this and more when he watched eleven bets worth only 25p in total play out before his eyes; every one proving to be accurate and winning him an astonishing £205k in cash, as theMirrornoted.

The average packet of crisps would have made him part with more money than his original bet. Here are the details of his epic win:

The man also put a bet on Armenia vs Montenegro in the World Cup qualifiers, with Armenia backed to win with over 2.5 goals. The chances of that one panning out looked slim when Montenegro eased into a 2-0 lead at half time, but when luck is on your side, anything can happen. Armenia turned it round and won 3-2 with a winner in the last minute.

The result may just be the biggest win earned from such a paltry bet that bookmakers have ever seen. So much for the house always winning!
