Lucky punter wins big with correct score accumulator

One lucky Sky Bet punter who prefers to remain anonymous has won over £65k with just a stake £5 on an eight-fold football accumulator.

The punter elected no to go for the to win accumulator for his eight selections but rather chose correct score group betting.

He predicted the exact scoreline for all the matches at odds of 6277.00. 

He needed each of his teams - from LA Galaxy in the MLS to Derry City in the Republic of Ireland Premier Division - to win either 1-0, 2-0 or 2-1.

All the matches went according to plan except for the close clash between LA Galaxy and Montreal Impact which the punter had predicted would finish 1-0 in favour of the Galaxy.

Despite going a man down in the first half the LA Galaxy ended their four-match losing streak. Zlatan Ibrahimovic was shown a red card in the first half but Ola Kamara still managed to squeeze in a winner for the Galaxy.

Often accumulator punters are cursed by bad luck, but this guy won despite having to endure late drama in the LA Galaxy and Montreal Impact match.

With this sort of massive win, no wonder he wants to remain anonymous.

Lucky lucky punter.
