Biggest soccer bet wins in history


The betting industry has done nothing but grow and many fear that it’s the sole industry responsible for fixed matches that have plagued soccer for decades. We can safely conclude that sports betting has never been bigger. With all the new ways of placing bets through mobile applications and online betting sites, betting has even become a secure income source for successful soccer bettors.

The advancement in technology has given way to other betting and gaming products such as the online casinos at and, as well as online poker and lottery competitions. But, sports betting and soccer betting in particular seems to be the most popular activities for people that like risking money to win some more and here you will see how much soccer betting can actually be worthwhile.

  1. London Punter wins £117,000

When this London punter was staking his £40 back in 2010 on his most successful accumulator bet, he probably thought “there goes my £40 for nothing”. He compiled a 14 match bet slip consisted of clubs like Espanyol, Fiorentina, Valencia, Port, Barcelona and AC Milan among the other. It was a stormy day in England, so he couldn’t bet on the Premier League clubs, and maybe for the better because in the end he netted £117,000 and remained anonymous to the media.

  1. Manchester United fan scoops £157,000

This nice, normal family man was a regular customer at the William Hill shop Upper St John Street, Lichfield. One day he placed £2.50 accumulator in 1999 and won £157,000. The accumulator included Manchester United to win the Champions League that year. When he took the money he told the clerk that he will be back to do it again.

  1. Ladbrokes Paying out £272,000

The lad that won this 9 way accumulator at Ladbrokes staked just £2.50 and predicted that Manchester City and Arsenal will draw, Wolves will beat Chelsea, Liverpool will lose to Blackburn and Barcelona will draw with Bilbao among the other. Accumulators are the hardest bets to win and this guy secured his future with just £2.50.

  1. £500,000 for just 30p

In terms of how much was wagered and how much was won, this bet should be at first place. This is actually the same man that said that he will be back to do it again (the #4 biggest win on this list), and he did it with style.

This win happened in 2001 when Bayern Munich defeated Valencia in the UEFA Champions League final just 2 years after winning £157,000. Bayern’s win was part of this 14 game accumulator that brought this lucky punter half a million pounds. The other correct predictions included Surrey to win County Championship, Leicester to win Rugby Union Premiership as well as 3 Scottish league winners and 5 English league winners. The odds were 1,666,666/1.

  1. 19 game accumulator worth £585,143

Imagine that, parting with 85p in exchange for £585,143.24. This is one of the biggest wins in history in terms of how many games were predicted too. It’s one massive win that happened in 2011 at odds 683,738/1. The punter is unknown and will probably remain unknown while enjoying his money somewhere on a sandy beach in Bora Bora.
