Scottish punter wins £50,000 off £1 football accumulator…and hasn’t even claimed it

How has he not claimed his winnings yet?

If you’ve ever had a flutter on the football you’re probably checking the scores every 10 seconds.

You spend the whole 90 minutes glued to a TV or frantically checking your phone for a late goal.

We’ve all been there when you’re deep into injury time praying that Rotherham get a winner.

Normally it ends with one team horribly letting you down to balls up your entire accumulator.

But one punter in Edinburgh managed to guess the results of 10 Premier League fixtures. All f**king 10.

The bet placed with 888sport won him £50,000 off a quid – but the worst part of it is that he doesn’t even know.

The betting company has tried messaging and phoning the lucky winner – but they’ve had no response and he’s not even logged onto his account to find 50 grand sat in there.

“Perhaps he’s still out drinking or maybe he forgot he placed the bet, 888sport spokesman Harry Pile told the Edinburgh Evening News.

“This is right up there with the biggest wins. You won’t find many people getting it right at 50,000/1. I bet he wishes he’d put on a fiver.”

The fixtures he correctly called are as follows…

Tottenham vs Arsenal – Draw

Swansea vs Norwich – Swansea win

Southampton vs Sunderland Draw

Newcastle vs Bournemouth – Bournemouth win

Man City vs Aston Villa – City win

Everton vs West Ham – West Ham win

Chelsea vs Stoke – Draw

Watford vs Leicester – Leicester win

Crystal Palace vs Liverpool – Liverpool win

West Brom vs Man United – West Brom win
