Punter wins £10k from LOSING £5 five-fold bet with incredible cash out

A PUNTER turned a losing bet into £10,031.63 after timing his cash out to perfection with Sky Bet.

One leg of his five-fold bet didn’t come through after a 95th minute equaliser but that didn’t stop him pocketing a huge lump of cash.

Bristol City scored a 93rd minute winner against QPR which looked to have sealed the punter £13,000 in winnings.

But the savvy bettor cashed out moments before Carlisle scored a 95th minute equaliser at home to Scunthorpe, which would have lost him his winnings.

The incredible decision to cash out meant he took home £10k instead of being left empty handed.

Elsewhere on his bet slip, Reading held on to beat Fulham 2-1 at Craven Cottage in the Championship.

While in League One, Plymouth beat Wimbledon 1-0 away from home and Cambridge beat Portsmouth 2-1 at Fratton Park.
