There was a stunning seven-fold acca success by a punter at Paddy Power on the weekend. This was all from Saturday’s action and with the first six legs having been successfully completed everything was left riding on Saturday evenings clash between Milan and Swansea from the English tiers.
The punter had played a Both Teams To Score acca with earlier Championship games of Brentford v Nottingham Forest, Hull v Derby, Sheffield United v Aston Villa having all returned, along with as League One’s Southend v Charlton, Cheltenham v Colchester plus Oldham v Crawley in League Two.
Swansea had gone down to ten men at The Den after just five minutes which lowered their chances of getting on the board. It was Millwall who got the opener though against the depleted Swans and really should have closed out the game.
For the punter it was a good job that the Lions did not shut up shop as Swansea sub Kyle Naughton got them an equalizer and completed the punter’s bet. Swansea actually fought back to win the game to land a £16,000 return, not that the win had any bearing on the bet by then.
A Dublin punter defied big odds last week at Bookmaker Boylesports as they cashed in on a horse racing accumulator and Lucky 15 to walk off with a nice chunk of money. The punter had selected a €0.70 Lucky 15 and a €1 each-way accumulator on the same four horses, from meets at Chelmsford and Carlisle.
Monsieur Jimmy (6/1), Majboor (6/1) and Northern Powerhouse (7/1) powered home to fill the first three legs of the bet from Thursday, August 30th and that left everything riding on Flint Hill who was a 9/2 shot when selected but ended up on the drift as a 7/1 price to start. He completed his win by a half a length at Carlisle to complete the bet.
The accumulator returned €5,304.34 and the Lucky 15 paid €6,322.86, meaning the punter’s account was better off to the tune of €11,627.20 by the time the bet was settled.
Lawrence Lyons, Spokesperson for Boylesports said: “The four winners across Chelmsford and Carlisle only spanned an hour and a half and we can only pay tribute to the customer for picking them out so well.
“Their final selection wasn’t a popular horse in the market before the off and we thought we were safe, but they knew better and we congratulate them on a stunning afternoon’s work.”
Tossing out a £1 accumulator on the weekend’s football action is probably a common thing for a lot of punters. What’s not quite so common are the big wins coming back. However, a punter at Paddy Power on the weekend managed to land a massive acca, beating out odds of 5000/1 to lend themselves a nice windfall.
The punter has Aston Villa to thank though for landing them the win in the end. The Villains were trailing the newly promoted Wigan 2-1 in their Championship encounter over the weekend, but then the Latics put through their own net to give Villa a lifeline in the 55th minute. The game though looked to be playing out to a draw until late drama.
Birkir Bjarnason turned in a cross in the 94th minute to give the Villains a dramatic home win and that was the night and final leg of the acca that was needed, the other eight having already come up. The last Aston Villa goal returned the punter a £5,483 prize which certainly is not bad from a £1 stake.

There was an amazing 15 fold acca won at Ladbrokes this week with a punter collecting over a £100,000 profit from a simply staggering 15-fold snooker accumulator. The total profit was £100,124.82 after placing the wager on Sunday with Ladbrokes.
The monster bet was focused on the first round matches at the World Open in China. The punter selected 15 players from the field to make it through their opening matches at the event including the likes of Marco Fu, Ryan Day and Ali Carter.
Six of the fifteen selections in the bet were settled in a deciding frame just to add a bit of tension.
Jessica Bridge of Ladbrokes said: “This is the biggest snooker accumulator win we’ve ever seen placed on a BetStation. Predicting the wins of 15 games has sent our traders snooker loopy, but we can only applaud this gentleman’s belief.”

There was an absolutely amazing betting success at Ladbrokes this week. A punter managed to turn £5 into just over £186,000. The win came from two bets, an 18-fold and a 17-fold acca to be exact. They had placed a £2.30 18-fold and a 15p 17-fold totalling to £5 stake on Tuesday, all of which came in to the sum of £186,574.91.
In the epic tennis bets, there were a lot of short-priced and odds-on favourite selections in the bet, with the longest priced option at 2/1 on Kirstie Ahn’s success over Sam Stosur.
Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: “This will go down as one of the biggest tennis bets we’ve seen in recent years. Having correctly predicted the outcome of 18 matches, seven of which were odds against, we can do little but take our hat off to this plucky punter.”

There is coming up with a winning bet and coming up with a winning bet in some style. A punter at Ladbrokes pulled off the latter on Tuesday after a simply astonishing wager. The lucky punter managed to produce a bet which turned 50p into a whopping £61,482.
It was through a massive 17-fold punt from matches across Europe on the night. It was a staggeringly bold and optimism wager and along the way, it needed some dramatic late action to ensure that it paid off as well. Six of the games in the bet actually, needed goals in the final ten minutes to turn them into winning selections.
Such as in the League Two Crewe v Exeter fixture, where the Railwaymen took a 1-0 lead just two minutes from time, before the Grecians somehow grabbed a 92nd-minute equaliser from Jordan Moore-Taylor before Jayden Stockley headed home a winner in the fifth minute of added time!
Aldershot needed a goal in stoppage time to get past Bromley to make sure that Both Teams To Score happened and within the seventeen selections, seven of them were BTTS options. As if that wasn’t enough, there were two cheeky match draw selections in there as well, the most obscure being an U19 duel between Man City and Inter Milan.
Aston Villa v Preston BTTS
Brentford v Birmingham – Brentford to win
Barnsley v Burton – BTTS
Middlesbrough v Hull – Boro to win
Millwall v Sheffield Wednesday – BTTS
Sheff Utd v QPR – Sheff Utd to win
Bolton v Sunderland – Bolton to win
Notts Forest v Reading – BTTS
Fleetwood v Gillingham – BTTS
Cambridge v Notts County – Cambridge to win
Barnet v Carlisle – BTTS
Crewe v Exeter – Exeter to win
Aldershot v Bromley – BTTS
Barrow v Gateshead – Draw
Bayern Munich v Besiktas – Bayern Munich to win
Man City U19 v Inter Milan U19 – Draw
Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: “The amount this punter has won is simply staggering, but the sheer luck involved in this acca is the real story here… three injury-time goals from around the grounds have made this the best bet we’ve seen – and probably will see – all year.”
