So five £2 bets can net that kind of a jackpot?!

What would the bets be because I cant get my head round where the huge odds came from other than predicting the winning margins.

Id thought initially it was a £10 accumulator over the whole weekends games but doesnt seem to be the case!

Spreadbetting is very dangerous. The stake may have been £2 but lets just assume the Wigan result was 84-6. The punters loss would have been £156 instead of a profit of £156 - a turn round of £312 !

Well it was spread betting, so he must have predicted Wigan, Hudds and Wire to win by very large margins.

I quite honestly dont really understand spread betting. Never looked at it so no idea how it works!
