The Football Pools awards record jackpot

Soccer fan has won over £440,000 in cash after correctly predicting the outcome of twelve games.

Tuesday 26th November 2013

The weekend saw one intuitive soccer fan scoop a record-breaking cash jackpot of over 440,000 courtesy of a successful twelve-game accumulator wager placed with The Football Pools. Owned and operated by pools and tote gaming operator Sportech, The Football Pools has paid out a total of 3.2 billion to over 61 million winners since its establishment outside the world-famous Old Trafford football ground in 1923 and offers a top prize of 3 million each week via its Classic Pools game. After correctly predicting the outcome of eleven contests taking place in England, Scotland and France, the winner collected a Jackpot 12 prize of 441,605 following the draw between French Ligue 1 sides Sochaux and Bastia on Saturday. “This weekend Jackpot 12 featured matches from the English Premier League, the Championship, Scottish Premier League, Ligue 1 and the Bundesliga and the pool size grew to a record high of over 600,000,” said former England international and 1966 FIFA World Cup winner Gordon Banks in his role as a brand ambassador for The Football Pools. “It was great to see a winner and it shows The Football Pools still has the magic [and continues] to create big winners from stakes as little as 50 pence.” To celebrate its 90th anniversary, The Football Pools is offering new depositing players that spend a minimum of 25 a free wager of the same amount.
