On the same weekend that another punter made over £13k on a 42p 15-fold acca, someone else placed a slightly larger bet of 60p on a slightly larger 16-fold acca, but won one heck of a lot more money.
This punter stuck to English fixtures in the Premier League and Championship, and managed to correctly predict the winner of 15 of them, also picking out a single match to finish as a draw. Incredible stuff.
Their betslip was as follows:
- Liverpool to beat Newcastle – 2/5
- Aston Villa to beat Norwich – 4/11
- Crystal Palace to beat Southampton – 2/1
- Burnley to beat Watford – 17/10
- Brighton to beat Wolves – 9/5
- Man City to beat Leeds – 2/7
- Preston to beat Barnsley – 6/5
- Bournemouth to beat Blackburn Rovers – 7/5
- Derby to beat Blackpool – 16/5
- Bristol City to beat Hull – 6/5
- Huddersfield to beat Coventry – 2/1
- Middlesbrough to beat Stoke – 4/5
- Cardiff v Birmingham to finish a draw – 9/4
- Millwall to beat Peterborough – 1/2
- Nottm Forest to beat Swansea – 8/15
- West Brom to beat Reading – 7/5
With combined odds of 263,109/1, including a ballsy punt on the already relegated Derby to beat Blackpool away at 16/5, the potential winnings came out at £157,865.59 – close t £58k.
Alex Amatti, PR manager at Ladbrokes, said:
“Our punter has played an absolute blinder here, correctly predicting the outcome of all 16 games in the top two tiers of English football on Saturday.”
“What makes the acca even more impressive is that there was just one draw across all sixteen games, and our customer managed to pick it out; truly remarkable stuff and we’re delighted for them.”
60p to £157k ????
Congratulations to the punter that correctly predicted a whopping 16 results to bag themselves £157,865.59 ????

For the acca to win it needed a heroic effort from Burnley to come from behind and score 2 goals in the last ten minutes away at Watford, and an even later effort from Wilfried Zaha who scored in the 92nd minute for Crystal Palace to overcome Southampton away.
The last game to come in was Man City vs Leeds, which was never going to be a concern for our lucky punter, and the Blues ended up trouncing the Yorkshire team 4-0 on their own turf.
If the winning punter was watching that one, they must have been doing so with the biggest smile in the world.
