Rodallega accumulator bet

Rodallega's late goal meant one punter scooped over £60,000

If there was any doubt about why we all love to play a football accumulator bet every Saturday, it must surely have disappeared with the news of the punter that bagged over £60,000 from one accumulator bet placed in a Ladbrokes Betting Office in Birmingham last week!

The lucky Ladbrokes customer landed a 14 team football accumulator bet that included the likes of Arsenal, Celtic and Manchester United when Hugo Rodallega’s goal proved to be the winner in Fulham’s match with Newcastle.

It’s what every football punter dreams of and it’s why accumulator bets are so great. For just a small initial outlay, you can win life changing sums of money – and anybody is capable of doing it! Imagine the drama when van Persie scored the late winner to keep the accumulator alive; the tension must have been unbearable during the dying stages of that Fulham match, too…

What’s more, the accumulator bet in question actually ‘only’ paid £46,814.56 but the customer qualified for a bonus of 30% thanks to Ladbrokes, which just goes to show that you should shop around and make sure you use the bookmaker that offers you the best odds and the best promotions. With that in mind, you may be interested to read about the 888 “Multiple Mayhem” promotion, more information on which can be found here.
