A huge £2million was staked on the relatively insignificant encounter ending with the scores level, while particularly savvy punters had put £217,000 on the game ending 1-1.
Lo and behold, the match did finish 1-1. David Williams, from Ladbrokes, told The Sun: “We saw a lot of money for the draw and decided to pull the plug.”
