On The Ball with an 18-Fold Accumulator

On The Ball with an 18-Fold Accumulator A lucky / skilful punter has overcome staggering odds by correctly predicting 3 goals or more in 18 separate European football games spanning over a two week period. The now considerably wealthier individual placed a meager ten pounds on this unlikely bet and must have been on the edge of his seat while watching the final game of his accumulator between Austria Wien and AC Milan, which was effectively an all or nothing outcome for him. The finger of fortune continued to point in the right direction though and the game ended up being something of a goalfest (Austria Wien 1 – Milan 5). The list of all of the punters bets brings home just how unlikely this series of events was:

Man City 5 Liverpool 0

Leicester 1 Chelsea 2

Stoke 2 Man Utd 2

Everton 0 Spurs 3

Juventus 3 Chievo 0

Lazio 4 Milan 1

Barcelona 3 Juventus 0

Celtic 0 PSG 5

Chelsea 6 Qarabag 0

Man Utd 3 Basel 0

Feyenoord 0 Man City 4

Liverpool 2 Sevilla 2

Real Madrid 3 APOEL 0

Shakhtar 2 Napoli 1

Spurs 3 Dortmund 1

Bayern Munich 3 Anderlecht 0

Bologna 0 Napoli 3

Austria Wien 1 Milan 5

I place a fair few bets at sport.netbet.co.uk and this guy’s luck has spurred me on! As is to be expected, there were one or two close calls, including a 90th minute goal in the Bayern Munich match. It must have been real edge of your seat stuff for the lucky winner. In a further stroke of good luck (because clearly this person is in need of more luck!!), he decided to opt for an ‘odds boost’ feature and so instead of winning almost £60,000 his eventual winnings were £80,908. Talk about not being able to put a foot wrong. Someone is certainly smiling down upon this fellow!

 

Unlucky Punter Misses Out On £340,000

Unlucky Punter Misses Out On £340,000 We’ve covered a number of multiples / accumulator big wins on the site, listing many of them here. It’s not all win, win, win though and so when a read about a recent near miss, I thought to include it here.

This week an unlucky punter missed out on a staggering £340,000 when his scoop6 bet fell just short on bagging him the six figure sum. It was all going so well. The final leg of the scoop6 wasn’t even an outsider, instead of was favourite Growl, available at 4-1. Growl, running in the Ayr Gold Cup got off to a good start, was was eventually beaten by a length due to an impressive run from Tom Eaves, Brando.

Had Growl won the unlucky punter would’ve won the grand sum of £190,424 as well as a cool £150,000 bonus from Scoop6 operator Betfred. Of course as the old saying goes “you win some, you lose some”, but this must have been a particularly difficult loss to suffer for one unlucky man!
