Punter wins more than £180,000 from £1 bet with 16-fold accumulator

Pavel Lokhovinin

East London resident put £1 bet and won £180,000. The bet spanned six countries, taking in games from England, Spain, Italy, Germany, Portugal and Belgium. The risk was huge: in the FA Cup the win of Watford over Nottingham Forrest was needed and that happened just on the 89th minute. In Spain Eibar scored just on the 94th minute to complete “both teams to score” clause in the game against Malaga.

The Happy winner who preferred not to be named is going to spend the money to buy a new house. He said: “I’m extremely happy. I live together with my wife, my baby and my four relatives so I want to use the money for buying a townhouse”.

Joe Crilly, the press officer of William Hill, said: “We’ve never seen the winning bets with such a huge odds. This punter and his case are really outstanding”.
