Bookies William Hill and Paddy Power reveal that two Brits scored massive wins on tiny bets Reuters

Two Britons have made massive returns, on comparatively tiny bets, following one of the most "remarkable" football matches in recent history.

According to snapshot data, released by some of Britain's biggest bookmakers, two individuals reeled in bumper winning bets, after Germany destroyed Brazil in the World Cup 2014 semi-final football game 7-1.

William Hill revealed that one student in Northern England placed a mere 80 pence bet on Germany to take a 5-0 halftime lead and subsequently pocketed £240 (€341, $410) after winning on the odds of 300-1.

Meanwhile, Paddy Power confirmed that one eastern England gambler won £2,500 after only placing a £5 bet, with the odds of 500-1, for the shocking final score.

Overall, William Hill said that none of its 120,000 customers had bet on Germany winning 7-1 against Brazil.

However, the group ended up forking out £1m in total on the popular bet that both teams would score.
