Punter wins more than £264k after landing outrageous 13-fold accumulator

Punter wins more than £264k after landing outrageous 13-fold accumulator

A Betfair customer picked up £264,712 from a £50 stake.

A lucky punter has scooped £264,712 from an accumulator featuring four draws and a crucial 88th minute equaliser that completed a memorable afternoon.

The person involved placed a £50 stake on 13 games from Saturday's fixture list, including matches across the Premier League and Championship.

They backed Tottenham, Everton, Chelsea and Fulham to win against Luton Town, Bournemouth, Burnley and Sheffield United respectively.

Then in the Championship, he touted Middlesbrough to win in their away clash to Sunderland, while Blackburn, Leeds, Ipswich and Leicester recorded victories in their games.

Finally, all four draws played out, including Cardiff vs Watford, Coventry vs Norwich, Millwall vs Hull and Crystal Palace vs Nottingham Forest.

Betfair spokesperson Sam Rosbottom confirmed the winning bet in a post on Twitter.

"It’s been a memorable day for one Betfair punter who has taken us to the absolute cleaners with a game changing 13-fold, winning an incredible £264,000," he said.

"Hats off to the punter who not only predicted a number of wins, but also four draws in matches across the Premier League and Championship.

"An 88th minute equaliser for Coventry against Norwich really rubbed the salt in our wounds, but that’s football, and from everyone at Betfair we have to wish them a huge congratulations!

"It’s been a great day for Betfair punters in general, with our SuperBoost of Son Heung-min to have one or more shots on target at evens landing early in the first half against Luton Town today."

On the other end of the luck spectrum, a very unfortunate punter missed out on £9,510 last month after he placed a bet on Luis Diaz to score for Liverpool in their Premier League clash against Spurs.

Twitter user @RyanHall_10 placed a £10 bet builder on the Spurs vs Liverpool game that included a Luis Diaz 'anytime' goal.

Diaz's goal was wrongly called as offside with PGMOL – the body responsible for referees in the Premier League – admitting their decision to disallow his goal was incorrect.

Hall, who placed the eight-fold bet featuring Cody Gakpo, Son Heung-min and Yves Bissouma, tagged Sky Sports and Bet365 in a tweet, writing: "Surely someone needs to pay me out for this!?"

He later spoke to SPORTbible and opened up about the situation.

"It would have changed my life," the 29-year-old said when asked about the sum. "Me and my girlfriend are looking at buying a house at the minute and £10,000 would've helped us out so much. It’s gutting that we’ve been let down by human error."

Hall added: "I’m not sure it’s Bet365’s fault because they didn’t make the decision, but obviously someone is responsible for it and they should probably pay up to be honest.
