Punter Turns £1 Into £25,000 From 20-Fold Footy Acca

A Paddy Power punter has managed to take home a whopping £25,993 from just a single pound stake bet on the football. An ambitious 20-fold came in to net the Scottish gambler a tidy Christmas present budget. It’s fair to say he will probably be increasing his stakes from now on.

If you’re not impressed yet, wait for this. The lucky man himself needed 3 injury time winners having backed Spurs, Clyde and AZ Alkmaar. Spurs netted in the 91st minute through a Christian Eriksen strike. Clyde also managed to steal an injury time winner in the 92nd minute with a strike from veteran John Rankin. And the best of all Alkmaar having come back from 1-0 down topped it all off with a 94th minute winner from substitute Bjorn Johnsen. He also backed Ross County v Ayr to be a draw, in which Ross County overcame a two-goal deficit to draw 3-3.

The first 18 legs were in by Saturday evening, so I can imagine he didn’t do much sleeping on the Saturday night. The punter opted against what I can only assume would be a huge cash out to leave his bet to ride on just the final two legs, which involved both teams to score in Premier League clashes Brighton v Chelsea and Southampton v Arsenal. Saints and Arsenal got the job done early with them both scoring inside 28 first half minutes. Post half time it was just a Brighton goal needed. Thankfully Solly March delivered the goods with his 66th minute consolation strike for Brighton.

Overall the punter's bet contained selections from all around Europe. He had two Italian games, Two from La Liga, four from England, one from the Bundesliga, three in the Eredivisie and a huge 8 from his homeland Scotland. He has claimed himself a spot in one of the best bets of all time, and I’m sure he will be using his winnings wisely.

It seems recently the luck has been in for punters as over the last few weeks we have seen some amazing winners, hopefully with more to come over the festive period!
