Near Miss! One Player 10 Minutes From £1 million Jackpot in bet365’s 6 Scores Challenge

One player was set to take home the £1,000,000 jackpot in bet365′s 6 Score Challenge, until Phil Foden’s tap-in added a third for Manchester City late on in their rout of Manchester United. The unlucky individual had correctly navigated the first five fixtures, surviving a late VAR check at Bournemouth and a hotly disputed penalty at Molineux.

The £1 million jackpot rested on the sixth 6 Scores Challenge fixture of the weekend, the Manchester derby. Until the 80th minute, it looked like we may be celebrating our inaugural jackpot winner at bet365, but Foden saw to that, dashing hopes of a million pound giveaway.

In the process, Manchester City continued their pursuit of a fourth consecutive Premier League title with an easy 3-0 victory over their arch rivals at Old Trafford. Erling Haaland looked back to his clinical ways, opening the game with a brace despite Onana’s heroics, taking his total PL goals this season to 11.

Discussing the close call, bet365′s Steve Freeth said: “The £1m jackpot may not have gone but I’m sure they will still be pleased with a whopping £20,000 consolation prize! This was a tough week of predictions and out of almost 300,000 entries only 1000 players correctly predicted three out of six scores, only 21 managed to guess four and only this one player guessed four and was on target to take home the jackpot until the late goal from Man City’s Phil Foden.”

Both Manchester teams will now be turning their attention to their next matches and 6 Scores Challenge players will be looking to correctly guess the Man City score in this weekend’s game.
