Lucky Punter Wins £185,000 From £20 Nine-Team Championship Accumulator


Lucky Punter Wins £185,000 From £20 Nine-Team Championship Accumulator

A lucky punter turned a £20 accumulator into a whopping £185,635 winning bet thanks to a stunning late goal on the opening weekend of the Championship.

The fan from East London put on a nine-match accumulator on the opening Saturday of the Championship season.

And the gambler's bet worth just £20 saw him bag a massive six-figure prize as a result of Blackpool's late equaliser against Bristol City.

Shayne Lavery scored in the 93rd minute to secure a point at Ashton Gate - and a massive win for a lucky punter.

The punter also had Birmingham to beat Sheffield United, Stoke City to beat Reading, QPR to draw with Millwall, Hull to beat Preston, Luton to beat Peterborough, Derby to draw with Huddersfield, Cardiff to draw with Barnsley, Blackburn to beat Swansea City and, of course, Bristol City to draw with Blackpool.

On the winning accumulator, Coral's John Hill said via Mirror: "It will be a Saturday afternoon that our punter from East London will never forget.

"After correctly predicting the match results in all nine Championship matches on the opening Saturday of the season, he is now £185,000 better off.


"Our winning customer will be raising a glass to Blackpool as the Tangerines equalised deep into stoppage time to help him land his astonishing bet.

"Maybe a trip to the seaside in Blackpool will be in order for the plucky punter as part of his celebrations."

Winning bet slip:

Birmingham to beat Sheffield United - 7/2


Stoke to beat Reading - 20/21

QPR to draw with Millwall - 21/10

Hull to beat Preston - 2/1

Luton to beat Peterborough - 11/10
