Punter Scoops €12,000 from €3 Football Acca

A lucky County Monaghan customer is celebrating today after their eight-team accumulator clicked on Saturday netting them a whopping €12205.76.

The €3 bet was made up of Bristol City (9/2) to beat Brighton, Luton Town (17/10) to beat Accrington Stanley, Barnet (11/10) to beat Grimsby, Carlisle (6/5) to beat Newport, Exeter (14/5) to beat Doncaster, Portsmouth (31/20) to beat Mansfield, Notts County (12/5) to beat Blackpool and Plymouth (4/5) to beat Crewe.

All eight teams won defying odds of just over 4,067/1.

They never had to sweat for the bet as the eight teams obliged without requiring last-gasp victories, although Plymouth found themselves 1-0 down with 15 minutes to go before two quick-fire goals secured a crucial home win for the punter.

It certainly proves that small stakes can reap big dividends and no doubt the customer is popping the champagne on what has proven to be an extremely profitable May Bank Holiday weekend for them.
