Punter Wins £15,000 From Four Fold 50p Accumulator
One football fan had the best Saturday of everyone by turning 50p into £15,000 with an incredible four fold accumulator in the Premier League.
A lot of football fans love nothing more on a Saturday than enjoying the day's football with an 'acca' to make the games we don't care about more interesting.
One such fan is going to be able to celebrate in a big way this week, after bagging themselves a profit of £14,999.50, thanks to an impressive four fold, as reported by Footy Accumulators.
What seems most impressive about the win is that it somehow seems extremely reasonable, yet if it were so easy we'd all be winning a load of money.
Jamie Vardy's recent form for Leicester made his 'anytime goal' seem pretty certain but if it wasn't for VAR then the former Fleetwood Town striker wouldn't have got on the scoresheet on Saturday.
Ayoze Perez gave Brendan Rodgers side the lead after 64 minutes, thanks to an assist from Vardy, and the Foxes looked to confirm their three points on 82 minutes when they won a penalty.
Vardy's spot kick was saved but James Maddison followed up to make it 2-0, however the referee called for the penalty to be re-taken after VAR showed both sides were encroaching on the area before it was taken.
The retake was of course scored by Vardy and handed the punter £15,000.
