Acca Punter bails out – wins £53k anyway

messiA betfair punter bagged himself a cool £53,000 as a result of his bewilderingly large 22-fold football accumulator starting to come together this April. He bailed out after 15 of the 22 results on had already come in and wisely so as it turned out, as straight after he pulled the plug a Barcelona victory over Real Sociedad required to keep him on course for a potential £1.5 million win, failed to materialise.

He perhaps chose to quit while significantly ahead as a result of other close calls to had to endure, so as a last minute injury time winning goal for QPR against Charlton. There were also dicey moments in the Man City vs West Brom game. The punters initial stake was just shy of £50, so he can’t have any complaints. Any day where you’re cashing out 50K as a reault of a relatively small bet, is a good day!

Canadian / Super Yankee

candian super yankeeWe’ve covered Yankees previously. A yankee is basically a bet that expands on a four fold accumulator where every selection has to win for your bet to be a winner. As opposed to accumulators with a yankee your bet is instead split into various different bets (11 bets from 4 selections -> 6 doubles, 4 trebles and 1 four-fold.). With a Super Yankee, also known as a Canadian, 5 selections are involved, so as I’m sure you can understand the number of bets increases too. The 5 selections amount to a total of 26 bets. 10 doubles, 10 trebles, 5 four-folds plus 1 five-fold.

This is of course a considerable number of bets and so is not as focused financially or in intent as an accumulator. It’s a bet that you could go for perhaps if you’re quietly confident in your selections but at the same time appreciate that they’re not all that likely to ‘realistically’ come up. Personally, I like the ‘edge of your seat’ nature of accumulator bets, even five folds, but it’s understandable of course that some like to see at least some return if they’re ‘close to’ right, rather than 100% on the button. For those punters with that way of thinking, a Lucky 15 is a Canadian aka a Super Yankee is a decent option.
