Pic: An Irish punter won almost €700 on a 10-match accumulator worth just 80 cents last night
We bet he’s wishing he wagered more than 80 cents now.
Given that the odds on them coming in are fairly high, the majority of punters who do multi-game football accumulators never wager too much money on them; on the off-chance that they do come in, the reward will be significant enough in any case.
JOE reader Patrick McPartlan must have emptied out all the coppers in his change jar before taking a punt on a ten-match football accumulator with Ladbrokes last night, staking the grand total of 80 cents on a combination of matches from the Premier League, the Coppa Italia, League One and the Conference.
All in all, Patrick’s bet came in at odds of just over 840/1 and though he’s no doubt wishing he had thrown an extra few euro towards a pretty ambitious bet, it’s no harm having an extra €700 in the back pocket coming up to Christmas.
