You feeling lucky punk? Well if you are, you're nowhere near as lucky as one Aussie NBA fan who became $500,000 richer after nine-leg bet on a single game. The Sportsbet punter chucked $200 on a nine-leg multi bet during the Portland Trail Blazers match-up against the San Antonio Spurs.

The bet involved 8 different players from both teams, with 4 from each needing to score a certain number of points and rebounds, here's how the scores ended up:

Here’s how it went for the Portland stars:

  • Damian Lillard over 26.5 points – scored 37 points
  • CJ McCollum over 20.5 points – scored 24 points
  • Al-Farouq Aminu over 8.5 points – scored 20 points
  • Jusuf Nurkic over 14.5 points – scored 16 points

And the Spurs:

We don't condone problem gambling, but we might be reactivating that old TAB account after this...
