East London punter scores £185k from £20 football acca with Coral
A 93rd-minute Blackpool equaliser helped to land the win
A Coral customer from East London celebrated the opening weekend of the Championship season with a huge £185,000 win after correctly predicting the results of nine matches with a £20 accumulator.
All nine games took place last Saturday (7th August) and it included a draw between Bristol City and Blackpool. It went down to the wire as the visitors equalised in the 93rd minute of that match to help land the winning accumulator for the customer, who wishes to remain anonymous.
“It will be a Saturday afternoon that our punter from East London will never forget. After correctly predicting the match results in all nine Championship matches on the opening Saturday of the season, he is now £185,000 better off,” said Coral’s John Hill.
“Our winning customer will be raising a glass to Blackpool as the Tangerines equalised deep into stoppage time to help him land his astonishing bet. Maybe a trip to the seaside in Blackpool will be in order for the plucky punter as part of his celebrations,” added Hill.
