Paddy Power punter celebrates New Year with mega £19,440 football acca win

An 85th minute goal secured the loot!


It may be a new year but things haven’t changed one bit after a punter took us to the cleaners. It happened again on Sunday January 2 as one lucky punter managed to turn a £15 four-fold into a staggering £19,440 after their fabulous footie acca landed.


Our winner – who hails from Harrow – predicted the Result & Both Teams to Score in four Premier League and Championship games on Sunday and the stunning bet came in at huge odds of 1295/1. Let’s tell you how it landed.

Firstly, our attention was on Sunday’s Premier League action. Everton v Brighton and Brentford v Aston Villa were both on the betslip, with our punter backing Brighton and Brentford.

Everton v Brighton ended up being a goal fest, with the Seagulls winning 3-2. Anthony Gordon netted twice for Everton, however, Brighton held on as our punter’s first selection landed.

Then the focus turned to Brentford v Aston Villa. Steven Gerrard’s men took the lead after 16 minutes through Danny Ings, however, they failed to kill the game off. Brentford then netted just before half time and Mads Roerslev bagged the winner in the 83rd minute.

Our punter was half way home and needed two Championship games to go in their favour.

Birmingham v QPR was first up and our punter needed the away side to win and both teams to score. QPR went 2-0 up after goals from Albert Adomah and Chris Willock with our punter needing a Birmingham goal. Chuks Aneke then stepped up to see another selection land.

Finally, the focus was on Bristol City v Millwall, with our punter siding with Nigel Pearson’s side. It didn’t start well for our punter, with Millwall going 2-1 up after 29 minutes. However, Bristol City bounced back with Andreas Weimann netting in the 73rd and 85th minute – to complete his hat trick – to see the home side win.

That meant our lucky punter scooped the £19,440 prize pot. So, all we can do is welcome yet another lucky winner to our Punting Hall Of Fame!
