Lucky punter wins £100k from £50 14-match accumulator he picked by accident

Lucky Brian Hall turned £50 into £100,548 with a 14-match accumulator bet he picked by accident.

Brian, 58, muddled up his dockets at the bookies while rushing through his football picks.

And he went to Lidl to calm his nerves while the final match was on.

He said: “I put two bets on in the shop but got them mixed up and told them to leave the £50 one on this accumulator.

“I’m glad I didn’t fill the coupon in again – I just told them I’d leave it.”

Brian’s selection placed with Betfred in Congleton, Cheshire, included 12 Carabao Cup ties, West Ham to beat Leicester in the Premier League, and Galatasaray to defeat Hatayspor in the Turkish Super League.

He said: “The games weren’t going my way at first… but the bigger teams came through in the end.

“With the Southampton game being 24 hours later on the Wednesday it was a long time to wait to find out whether I’d won so much.

“I tried to keep calm all day and went to Lidl while the game was on.”

Brian said of his winnings: “I want to buy a motorhome so I can get myself away for a few days.”

Betfred boss Fred Done joked: “He’s picked my pocket good and proper, so well done to one of our regular customers – send me a postcard.”

A lucky punter also turned a £40 accumulator into a whopping £18,222 thanks to the EFL Cup drama which saw two late goals scored.

Betting company Betfair revealed on Twitter on Wednesday evening that there have already been a number of big winners this season, including one fan who put on a sensational 13-match accumulator for the midweek EFL Cup games.

The fortunate gambler bet just £40 which saw him take away over 400-times the initial amount after late goals in Wolves and Brentford’s matches.

The accumulator also had Stoke, Sheffield United, Leeds United, Everton, Millwall, QPR, Brighton, Fulham and Aston Villa to win their respective matches.
