In-game betting can be dangerous … as one college student learned during an African Cup of Nations match between Angola and Mali.
Angola was up 4-0 when the student bet his entire £4,400 education loan on Angola holding on for the win. Had they been successful, he woulda won £44 via Betfair. Alas, the Mali-ans pulled off a miracle at the last second to draw.
UPDATE: James in Dundee (aka @jambizzle) tweets in to say this story is not accurate:
This was outed as a joke between the Original poser (bettor) and a friend. No bet was made.
