The customer placed multiples involving Premier League games across the Christmas period for a total stake of £56, and collected precisely £100,304.24 after Tottenham beat Stoke.
Indeed, Tottenham were key to the payout as the first selection on the multiples was Spurs to beat Southampton, while Everton also featured twice with victories over Swansea and Saints.
The biggest priced selections were all draws - Arsenal v Chelsea, West Ham v West Brom and Aston Villa v Swansea - while 1/7 shots Manchester City contributed with their 1-0 win over Crystal Palace.
Tottenham's victory over Stoke followed on from wins for Chelsea, Arsenal and Everton on a fine day for favourite backers, and saw Jose Mourinho's Chelsea cut to 4/1 for the Premier League title.
Arsenal are just a shade bigger at 9/2 after Olivier Giroud's goal saw them edge past Newcastle at St James' Park, while Everton are now just 40/1 having bounced back from their Boxing Day defeat to Sunderland with a 2-1 win over Southampton.
Back-to-back defeats for Liverpool saw them pushed out to 10/1, but they remain ahead of 14/1 chances Manchester United despite two away wins in the space of three days for the defending champions.
At the other end of the table, Crystal Palace remain favourites for relegation despite showing plenty of fight with a Boxing Day victory at Aston Villa followed by a narrow defeat at the Etihad Stadium.
They're followed by 5/6 chances Sunderland after they secured a late draw at Cardiff, who are fourth favourites at 13/8 and just behind 5/4 chances Fulham after they were thrashed by Hull.
