Sky Bet punter wins over £21,000 with a £5 11-fold football accumulator

One lucky Sky Bet punters will be celebrating wilder than Newport fans after his big win!
One lucky Sky Bet punters will be celebrating wilder than Newport fans after his big win!

One Sky Bet punter is enjoying the international break more than most after his 11-fold accumulator for Saturday's domestic football won him over £21,000 from just a £5 stake.

The customer, Stuart from Warrington, kept his acca simple with 11 'win only' selections consisting of nine matches from the Sky Bet Football League and two from non-league.

However, it was far from plain sailing as it required four late winning goals to bring the bet home - none later than Newport's dramatic 98th-minute strike courtesy of Antoine Semenyo against Stevenage.

Until that moment, Stuart perhaps felt Burton's 91st-minute goal against Bristol Rovers, Coventry's 82nd-minute winner against Wycombe and Solihull Moors' effort in the 82nd minute of their clash with Ebbsfleet were all in vain - but he'll be mightily glad they pushed for all three points now.

Here's the bet:

  • Solihull Moors 2-1 Ebbsfleet United
  • Dagenham and Redbridge 1-2 Wrexham
  • Newport County 2-1 Stevenage
  • Scunthorpe 0-2 Peterborough
  • Exeter 2-0 Swindon
  • Cambridge 0-1 MK Dons
  • Gillingham 0-2 Southend
  • Coventry 1-0 Wycombe
  • Burton 1-0 Bristol Rovers
  • Accrington 3-1 Bradford
  • AFC Wimbledon 1-2 Portsmouth

Stake: £5.00

Returns: £21,481.80

Talking of winning accumulators...

That same 98th minute winning goal for Newport gave another Sky Bet punter a £1,148 windfall...from a 47p bet!

His selections were

  • AFC Wimbledon 1-2 Portsmouth
  • Accrington 3-1 Bradford
  • Burton 1-0 Bristol Rovers
  • Coventry 1-0 Wycombe
  • Fleetwood 2-1 Shrewsbury
  • Scunthorpe 0-2 Peterborough
  • Cambridge 0-1 MK Dons
  • Exeter 2-0 Swindon
  • Newport County 2-1 Stevenage
  • Port Vale 2-6 Lincoln

Sky Bet also report that seven customers in total had bets of £10 or less which paid out more than £10k, the highlight arguably being that aforementioned £5 11-fold acca at 4,295/1.

However there was another punter who scooped £13k from a £5 five-fold on Portsmouth, Fleetwood, Colchester, Newport County and Boreham Wood each to win and BTTS.

Meanwhile the Sporting Life Acca successfully landed on Saturday's Sky Bet EFL games - with Lincoln, Southend and MK Dons all winning in our 11/1 selection - our second win in four weeks.
