Prior to a video game in between the Buffalo Sabres and New Jersey Devils, a gambler was trying to position a $2.50 bet on Kyle Okposo to score the very first objective and the Sabres to win the video game in guideline.

The just issue was that he typed $250 into the wager quantity area — not $2.50 as meant — and the lofty bet was made. Lucky for this gambler, Okposo wound up scoring an amazing very first objective and the Sabres came away with a 5-2 win.

The unexpected wager wound up netting this specific gambler a tremendous $10,250.00.
