If you are looking for some betting inspiration so start the New Year with, then look no further than at a punter at bookmaker Sky Bet, who turned a small £5 stake into a £32,000 jackpot on January 2nd.
The bet was an absolute cracker, a real masterpiece of a sevenfold accumulator. They hadn’t just backed the winners in the seven matches but had backed each one to win to nil.
The selections were Cardiff, Reading, Gillingham, Coventry, Bristol Rovers, Northampton and Middlesbrough to all come away from their Football League matches with clean-sheet victories.
It was all looking solid as well with six selections up as the 90th minute approached, but Reading was letting the whole thing down being held to a 0-0 draw by Bristol City. Fortunately for the punter, a stoppage time winner from the Royals’ Nick Blackman saw Reading steal a late 1-0 win and turned the punter’s £5 stake into £32,124.69.
That’s what an accumulator can do for you and the small stake is actually one that you can pick up free each week in the Sky Bet Club. Opt in to the Sky Bet Club and when you make a total of £25 in bets each week you will pick up a Free £5 Bet Bonus!
