A Woman's World: Punter Wins £80k on Super 6 Predictor Game After Playing to Beat Her Husband

​A woman has won £80k on Sky Sports' Super 6 predictor, but only played in the first place to beat her husband.

The Super 6 game consists of fans guessing six results from Saturday's football games, with a reward of £250k for someone who predicts six correct scores.

Lynn Kemp won her share of the winnings thanks to Andrea Rannochia's late consolation for Hull City in their 3-1 defeat to Manchester City.

Although Rannochia scored the goal, Lynn has City keeper Claudio Bravo to thank after his weak attempt to stop Rannochia's tame shot allowed the score to end 3-1 and give Lynn her big win.

Lynn has revealed that she is not a big football fan, but in-fact played the Super 6 game in order to beat her husband. 

She told the Daily Record (via the Mirror): " I think people are surprised that I actually play the game, but I only really do it to beat Colin, my husband.

" He plays it every week and this is only the sixth or seventh time I've actually done it."

Lynn has revealed it took a while for her to find out about her win, as she was on a long drive with no signal. She said: " We were driving back from Lewis and I had no phone signal until we got off the ferry and onto the mainland at around 6pm.

" When I opened the email from Sky I actually screamed so loud that I woke my daughter up in the back seat, I just couldn't believe that I had won."
