Punter makes 'worst cash out of all time' on 18-fold accumulator that cost him massive win
| Last updated
An unlucky punter lost out on thousands last weekend after they cashed out on an 18-fold accumulator for just £34.68.
The person involved placed £10 on 18 fixtures from last weekend's action, including Rangers and Liverpool, who both secured victories in the early Saturday afternoon kick-offs.
It was a solid start to proceedings but with odds of 3129/1 at the start of play, things were looking bleak at half-time, when in-form Manchester City went 1-0 behind against West Ham.
Spurs also went a goal behind against newly-promoted Sheffield United in the 73rd minute so, presumably midway through the 3pm kick-offs, the punter decided to cash out early for £34.68.
They'd managed to bag a respectable profit considering RB Leipzig, Aston Villa, Fulham, Norwich, Celtic, Exeter, Gillingham, Preston North End, Barnsley, Wrexham, Ipswich and Sunderland were also on their bet.
But in a cruel twist, two injury-time goals from Richarlison and Dejan Kulusevski sealed a dramatic late win for Spurs, while all of the above managed to pick up victories.
Then, to rub salt into the already-open wounds, a Callum Wilson penalty sealed all three points for Newcastle before Barcelona thumped five goals past Real Betis in a convincing 5-0 win at the Camp Nou.
If the punter decided to carry on with the bet then they would have turned their £10 free bet into £31,295.
One fan commented on footage of the bet from his Sky Bet app, saying: "Worst cash out i’ve ever seen in my life," while another said: "My word. This is one of the worst I’ve ever seen. Seriously why would you?"
A third added: "The fact it’s a free bet makes it 100x worse."

Another punter, meanwhile, was applauded for his 'bet of the season' contender at the weekend after he became £55,000 richer from an £8 accumulator.
A Ladbrokes customer based in Ireland decided to place a unique "comeback bet" where he needed Liverpool, Manchester City, Aston Villa and Tottenham to all come from losing positions and win.
It was only a four fold and a quartet of strong sides were selected but the requirements of the slip made it a lot more speculative.
However, in some truly incredible scenes - all four did exactly what the bettor ordered.
Manchester City found themselves 1-0 down to West Ham after James Ward-Prowse continued his fine run of form, but turned it around courtesy of goals from Jeremy Doku, Bernardo Silva and Erling Haaland.
PEP 💬 (On Doku) He played really well... I was impressed because we knew his quality and we didn't expect it... [it's] an incredible threat. pic.twitter.com/gzvueJ4VT7— Manchester City (@ManCity) September 18, 2023
Liverpool, who trailed to an early strike from Wolves' Hwang Hee Chan, also won 3-1 after stepping things up in the second half.
Aston Villa and Spurs then provided more late drama that saw the punter win big.
Ladbrokes spokesperson Alex Apati said: “Squeaky bum time is the understatement of the season when it comes to this one. In the blink of an eye, and in a record-breaking Premier League moment at the Tottenham Hotspur stadium, our punter went from zero to €64,000 hero.”
Here is the slip in full:
Liverpool - 15/2
Aston Villa - 19/2
Man City - 8/1
Tottenham - 7/1
