One punter struck gold at the weekend as they managed to pull off one of the great accumulators for this weekends fixtures.

Punter Wins £8K From Brilliant £5 Football Bet

The recent run of exceptional accumulators has carried on. While most of us seem incapable of pulling off an ambitious accumulator, we are being accustomed to seeing people on social media pull off some unreal bets.

Tranmere fan Robert McArdle (@robmcardle17) saw his ambitious ten fold accumulator come through much to his delight.

Robert stuck £5 on an audacious accumulator at the odds of 1632.64/1 and he revealed his betting slip via Twitter with the caption “A great day.”

While the whole slip isn't visible, Robert did back over 2.5 goals in games between: Crystal Palace vs Watford, Bristol City vs Bolton, Birmingham vs Middlesbrough, Fleetwood vs Oxford and Shrewsbury vs Charlton.

Robert's ten fold accumulator saw him bag a healthy £8,168,20 from the £5 bet. Alongside his Tranmere coming from behind to win 3-1 at Cheltenham in the League Two affair, it was a pretty good Saturday for Rob!

It looks to have been a decent week for many punters as we've seen some remarkable bets come through recently, however, will we see the recent good fortune continue this week?
