Our attempt to turn £10 to £10k in 25 bets

Did you know that a £10 roll-up on 25 consecutive winning bets at odds of 1/3 would return over £13,000?

Well for a bit of fun we’re going to attempt it and see just how easy (or difficult) this might prove to be by backing one selection per day ranging from odds of 1/2 and 1/5.

Follow our progress on Twitter (@BigBettingBlog) and join the banter using hashtag #BBB10to10k.

Here we will list all our bets and keep a running total so you can see how we get on during our challenge. We’ll be covering a range of sports, including football, racing and more.

Wish us luck!

£10 to £10k Challenge Progress

  • Bet No. | Stake | Bet Details | End Balance
  • 1. | £10 | Chelsea (v Reading) @ 3/10 | £13
  • 2. | £13 | Athletic Bilbao -1 (v Helsinki) @ 4/7 | £20.43
  • 3. | £20.43 | Bor. Dortmund (v Werder Bremen) @ 1/3 | £27.24
  • 4. | £27.24 | Man Utd (v Fulham) @ 1/3 | £36.32
  • 5. | £36.32 | AC Milan (v Sampdoria) @ 1/2 | LOST

EDIT – Unfortunately we fell at the 5th fence as AC Milan failed to beat Sampdoria at home! We might give it another go if there is any appetite for it? If you’d like it to try again then tweet us @BigBettingBlog and we’ll see if there’s enough interest.
