Paddy Power refunded more than £200,000 to football betting customers on Saturday.
The main kick in the sweets came via Spaniard Juan Mata who destroyed Spurs with two goals and a man-of-the-match performance at White Hart Lane in Chelsea’s 4-2 victory.
Paddy had offered a Money-Back Special if Mata scored at any time in the game and as he found the net twice, we refunded on all losing in-running first/last goalscorer, correct score & scorecast singles.
As well as the Mata MBS, Paddy Power’s popular 5-fold accumulator offer continues to offer punters the kind of hope on Saturdays usually reserved for Chris Moloney as he prepares for life entertaining Germans on cruise ships.
Place a 5-fold or bigger accumulator across the top four English divisions and if just one leg lets you down, we’ll refund your losing bet.
A combination of a blockbuster Premier League Saturday and Mata doing the business certainly lined punters’ pockets and made it one of the most expensive days in 2012 for Paddy in terms of football refunds.
