Punter wins incredible £300k from £20 six-fold accumulator thanks to late equaliser

A lucky punter wins an incredible £300k from a £20 six-fold accumulator he placed, and it’s with thanks to a late equaliser over the weekend.

The bet came in on Saturday to allow a punter to scoop a total pay out of £308,880 after months of waiting, placing it back in August.

One lucky William Hill customer correctly predicting the winners of six leagues in both England and Scotland with their win sealed on the final day of the League Two season as Forest Green Rovers drew 2-2 away to Mansfield Town to win the title.

Josh March scored a vital equaliser in the 80th minute to earn his side a 2-2 draw and in turn this saw a punter land a total pay out of the six figure sum of cash after nine months of waiting.

The punter’s other betting picks included League One winners Wigan Athletic, Championship table toppers Fulham and Scottish sides Kilmarnock, Cove Rangers and Kelty Hearts.

Kelty Hearts won the Scottish League Two title in their debut season in that division by a staggering 21 points, Fulham also finished top of the Championship prior to the final day, Wigan were also crowned champions but and promotion was secured on the final day of the League One season, winning 3-0 at Shrewsbury to pip rivals Rotherham United to top spot by two points.

William Hill spokesperson Tony Kenny has since explained: “Many of our customers chance their arm with big-priced accumulators on who will win a selection of football leagues from around the world, but few of them come off.

“However, that wasn’t the case on Saturday as a remarkable ante-post six-fold landed with one punter correctly predicting that Kilmarnock, Cove, Kelty Hearts, Fulham, Wigan and Forest Green would all emerge victorious in their respective leagues.

“The punter staked just £20 on the bet back in August and after a late Forest Green equaliser, they are waking up over £300k richer.”

The final part of the bet was riding on Forest Green last Saturday, with the club heading to the third tier for the first time as champions. It was them who had also been the longest odds on the bet, with the gambling football fan getting them at 12/1 to win the title.

Rob Edwards’ side earned that on Saturday, coming back having trailed late on after Jordan Bowery restored Mansfield’s lead with 12 minutes remaining, before March cancelled it out with the all-important equaliser two minutes later.

Winning selections:

Scottish Championship – Kilmarnock (4/5)
Scottish League One – Cove Rangers (3/1)
Scottish League Two – Kelty Hearts (4/6)
Championship – Fulham (9/2)
League 1 – Wigan Athletic (11/1)
League 2 – Forest Green Rovers (12/1)
