This punter turned £1 into £180,000 with incredible 16-game accumulator

Ridiculous bet!

We can’t even guess three fixtures right, never mind 16.

But one punter did just that with an inspired 16-game accumulator that won him a ridiculous £180,000 off a £1 bet.

The 27-year-old Londoner hit the motherload when Watford beat Nottingham Forest with an 89th minute goal in the FA Cup.

He also needed a consolation goal in the La Liga game between Eibar and Malaga to win him the six-figure sum.

It is believed to be one of the biggest winning football bets from such a small stake every paid out by William Hill, with the final total standing at £181,570.50.

Not bad off a quid.

“This is one of the biggest winning football bets we have ever seen,” a spokesman for the Bookies said.

“For someone to defy odds of over 180,000/1 is a feat most of us dream about but it is very rarely achieved.”
