Football Punter wins £181,570 from a £1 Accumulator with William Hill
An anonymous 27-year-old football fan from East London turned a £1 bet into £181,570 during the weekend of the last week of January in 2016 in what was recorded as the second largest odds win of all-time at William Hill.
The man celebrated the weekend happily after winning over £180,000 by placing a 16-team accumulator which had more than a little luck going for it.
The accumulator bet included Watford to defeat Nottingham Forest in the FA Cup of which they eventually managed to do when Ighalo from Watford scored an 89th-minute winning goal which also required a 94th-minute consolation goal from Eibar Striker Borja so as to bag both teams to score in the match between Malaga and Eibar.
The lucky punter who managed to scoop up £181,570 said that he wished to remain anonymous and planned to use most of the money to buy a house for his family.

Man Miraculously Cashes Out £53,000 Just Before His Accumulator Lost
Now, one of the most unbelievable cash outs in betting history! This LAD was two-thirds shy of completing a crazy 22-fold accumulator to win an unbelievable £1.5 million cashout. The last bet required was Barcelona to win against Real Sociedad.
15 of the 22 results were already in line with his predictions before he decided to cash out the £53,000. He’d gone through some squeaky bum moments like needing a winning goal by QPR in the 94th minute to keep his bet alive.
If Barcelona had won the match, he would have been much closer to winning an insane £1.5 million jackpot.
The punter took the £53,000 offered to him just a few minutes before Barca kicked off. Barcelona then ended up slipping to a lacklustre 1 – 0 defeat. A Betfair trader went on to say that this was one of the biggest cashouts this year.
It’s not every day someone correctly predicts a Barcelona loss, with that amount of cash at stake!
Initial Stake: £49.50
Overall winnings: £53,000

Lad Celebrates with a KFC after Winning £81,000 Acca
Rob Hankey quit his warehouse job after he won £81,000 from a £1 bet. The 47-year-old better was in the money after he managed to pick all six winners in an accumulator bet during the weekend of the 2nd week of October.
Rob, of Crewe, placed the accumulator bet at a Betfred branch in his town where he had been placing bets for almost 10 years.
Now Rob, who quit his Sunday to Thursday job at the bargain booze, has made plans to join Malkins Bank Golf Club, pay off the cost of his car, and go on holiday to America. This financial boost has also given Rob more time to spend looking after his disabled parents.
Rob has always been hoping for a big win ever since he managed to pocket £400 from a bet on the Lincoln Handicap when he was only 18 years old.
Rob’s six winning accumulator bets all ran at Ascot with the final race-winning at 4.25pm on 15th October. Rob then went on to celebrate his £81,000 win with a KFC takeaway before he spent the night watching re-runs of the races.

Lucky Punter Rakes in £207,740 on a 20-Fold Accumulator
On December 19, 2016, one lucky bloke managed to win himself an extraordinary sum of £207,740 after he placed a £5 20-fold accumulator bet with bookies at Betvictor. The betting company left most Twitter users quite jealous when they announced the good news on the social media site that evening.
The punter was also awarded an extra £15,405 on top of his grand win that came from Betvictor’s price promise offer. The bookmaker also went on to add to the tweet by saying that the accumulator bet was placed on December 13th, pointing out the irony as the number 13 is usually considered as an unlucky number. Some of the final moments of the games had left the lucky punter in some very heart stopping moments.
In the Brighton vs. Birmingham game, he desperately needed Brighton to win, but they were down 1 – 0 in the 82nd minute. But then miraculously at the 95th minute, Birmingham scored the winning goal.
Initial Stake: £5

Risky £5000 Five Horse Acca Wins Punter £850,000 at Cheltenham
During the Cheltenham Festival, one punter decided to put his courage and expertise to the test. They made an incredible fortune from a bet on day 3 of the festival after bringing together a five horse bet which had odds of almost 170/1. The punter staked a risky £5,000 bet on five horses in which four of them had to be winners and each way bets and one of them to be placed.
The accumulator bet came through to win this lucky punter an unbelievable £849,238. Each of the bets went as follows: Vautour (Win and Each Way) – 1.80, Thistlecrack (Win and Each Way) – 2.25, Limini (Win and Each Way – 1.83), Ballyandy (To Be Placed) – 2.75, and Diego Du Charmil (Win and Each Way) 7.50.
The odds seemed to be slightly in his favour as professional horse rider Ruby Walsh rode Limini and the currently deceased Vautour.
