Punter Wins Astonishing £308,000 Six-Fold Accumulator Thanks To Late Equaliser On Final Day

One lucky punter has won £308,000 after successfully predicting six different league winners at the start of the season.

We're edging towards the end of the 2021/2022 season and a number of leagues across the UK have already come to a close.

That means a select few will be coming into a bit of cash thanks to outrageous predictions made in the summer. Nobody will be making more than one lucky William Hill customer, however.

His £20 six-fold accumulator on Kilmarnock, Cove, Kelty Hearts, Fulham, Wigan Athletic and Forest Green Rovers to win their respective leagues came in on Saturday afternoon.

The odds were a whopping 15,444/1 and it came close to not landing.

William Hill spokesperson Tony Kenny said: "Many of our customers chance their arm with big-priced accumulators on who will win a selection of football leagues from around the world, but few of them come off.

"However, that wasn’t the case on Saturday as a remarkable ante-post six-fold landed with one punter correctly predicting that Kilmarnock, Cove, Kelty Hearts, Fulham, Wigan and Forest Green would all emerge victorious in their respective leagues.

"The punter staked just £20 on the bet back in August and after a late Forest Green equaliser, they are waking up over £300k richer."

Every other league title was wrapped with more certainty and League Two was certainly the place to be for final day drama.

Earing promotion to League One alongside Forest Green are Exeter City and Bristol Rovers, with the latter achieving it in extraordinary fashion.

Joey Barton's side needed to outscore Northampton Town to claim the final automation promotion place.

The Cobblers beat Barrow 3-1 and that meant Rovers had to demolish already relegated Scunthorpe United 7-0.

By now, you'll know what happened.

Rovers went 2-0 up in the first half before smashing five past a helpless Owen Foster to run out 7-0 winners. Extraordinary scenes.
