Wilfried Zaha winner helps punter turn 42p into £13k with stunning 31,762/1 football accumulator

ONE William Hill customer enjoyed the Bank Holiday weekend more than most…

And that's because this genius punter correctly predicted FIFTEEN football matches across England and Scotland on Saturday to scoop a colossal £13,340!

The bettor placed 42p on the enormous accumulator at seismic odds of 31,762/1.

But it wasn't smooth sailing. In fact, this bettor didn't need one but TWO dramatic late comebacks to collect this jackpot.

While some results were plain sailing like Bournemouth’s 3-0 victory over Blackburn.

Others were closer. Much closer.

In fact, the bet was heading for a plucky defeat with Burnley trailing to Watford with less than ten minutes of normal time remaining.

The punter needed two late Burnley goals at Vicarage Road, and must have been stunned when Jack Cork and Josh Brownhill obliged to ensure the bet was still alive.

Stake: 42p
Odds: 31,762/1
To return: £13,340

But that remarkable comeback looked to have been in vain with Southampton and Crystal Palace playing out a 1-1 draw at St Mary's.

Until… Wilfried Zaha stepped up in the 92nd-minute to bag a late winner for the Eagles.

The final leg of the 15-fold accumulator came when Manchester City comfortably saw off Leeds 4-0 and when the final whistle blew, the customer was celebrating taking home £13,340.30.

William Hill spokesperson, Tony Kenny, said: "A couple of teams left it late, but after Burnley and Crystal Palace scored late winners over the weekend, one of our customers was left celebrating after successfully predicting the results of 15 separate matches.

"Having staked just 42p on the matches across England and Scotland, the punter took home a hefty £13,340.30 and there must have been some nervous moments with Palace leaving it until the 92nd minute to beat Southampton."
