While the French celebrated their big World Cup victory on Monday morning, a few Kiwi punters were celebrating massive betting wins.
After spending just $17 on a 10-leg multi last November, France's win over Croatia sealed a $7,206.60 cheque for one lucky Kiwi.
The bet spanned across five different sports and eight competitions, with the first leg coming in on November 26 when Jamie Whincup capitalised on Kiwi Scott McLaughlin's misfortune to claim the 2017 Supercars Drivers Championship ($1.60).
At the time of placing the bet, France was paying $6 to lift the trophy in Russia before moving to $1.42 after Croatia's extra-time win over England. Meanwhile, Croatia, who had played extra time in their previous three matches, were paying $2.70.
One bettor, who only spent $5 on exact score multi wins, won $7,870.00, while the biggest TAB win of the World Cup was a whopping $85,000 to a punter who bet $27,000 on head to head multi wins.
