7 Best Accumulator Wins Ever
7 Best Accumulator Wins Ever
The central appeal of the accumulator bet is how much scope it has for things to go very right (or very wrong, of course, but that’s always an option). Couple that with the fun of outlining the unlikely scenario of your choice, and it’s a great way to gamble.
Curious about the wild results that can stem from an accumulator bet that hits the nail on the head? You won’t be disappointed by the reality. Let’s check out the 7 best accumulator wins (in modern history, at least!):
£1.45m from £2
Topping our list is this mammoth win from a horse race accumulator. Steve Whiteley put down just £2 on six winners in 2011, but walked away a millionaire when the stars aligned in his favour. To look at it another way, that’s an ROI of 72,500,000% — and he only attended the meeting on a free promotion. Not too shabby. I can only hope that he subsequently gave H.O.R.S.E poker a try, since he clearly has a gift when it comes to equine-themed gambling!
£1m from 50p
In most stores these days, 50p can’t get you a Mars bar, but it won Fred Craggs a cool £1m from an 8-fold accumulator back in 2008. Entertainingly, the last horse he backed was named A Dream Come True. Just think what he might have accomplished with a crisp £5 in his pocket — shouldn’t have stopped for lunch on the way to the bookie.
£650,000 from £100
Eight football matches in play, £100 on the table. If you happen to enjoy pressure, that’s a good time to lay out a complete set of results. What happens if you defy logic and pick draws for various losing teams? Well, if you’re very lucky, you get every result right and win £650,000 — which is just what happened to an anonymous Londoner in 2014.
£585,000 from 80p
Some people are naturally cautious, shying away from hefty bets. That way they can only lose incrementally. That was the mindset of one Maltese football fan back in 2011, and when they placed an 80p bet, they likely didn’t expect much — but when their huge 19-match accumulator fell their way, they snagged an eye-watering £585,000.
£500,000 from 30p
Betting against your team can hurt, but sometimes it pays to go with your gut. Back in late 2000, a Manchester United fan placed a 15-event accumulator bet for the upcoming season, putting down just 30p against odds of 1.66 million to 1. Having somehow picked the winners for football, rugby and cricket leagues, Bayern Munich’s Champions League victory netted them £500,000.
£272,000 from £2.50
2011 was a good year for gamblers, because it picks up its third appearance on this list. Another anonymous punter put a modest £2.50 on a 9-match accumulator in which they tipped Wolverhampton Wanderers for a victory and Barcelona for a draw. And with an 85th-minute leveller in the latter (and final) game, their prediction became a reality, yielding £272,000.
$305,375 from $5
We’ve seen horse racing, football, rugby, and cricket… how about basketball? A hopeful American gambler (for Las Vegas, no less) placed just $5 on a basketball accumulator in 2016, featuring college teams and NBA teams. All the results went their way, and they ended up adding $305,375 to their bank account.
These remarkable wins just go to show that even the wildest predictions can come true, and the accumulator route is one of the most exciting paths for a gambler to take. Why not give it a try? Here are some accumulator tips to get you started. You might be convinced that your 20-match accumulator won’t pay off… but you can’t know for sure!
