A British punter needed three stoppage-time goals to clinch a staggering 17-fold accumulator and earn them £61,000 (NZ$115,900) off a 50p (95 cent) bet.

The punter placed the hopeful bet on 17 different games at a Ladbrokes shop in Cheetham Hill, Manchester and ended up raking in 122,000 times that amount.

The bet was looking far from likely as the matches entered stoppage time with Exeter trailing 1-0 at Crewe and Aldershot 1-0 down to Bromley.

The punter needed Aldershot to draw and Exeter to win to seal the accumulator while it relied on four other crucial goals scored in the final 10 minutes of games.


But Exeter rescued victory from the jaws of defeat as Taylor-Moore netted in the 92nd minute before Stockley put the Grecians in front three minutes later to secure an incredible turnaround victory.

And Aldershot had scored a 92nd-minute equaliser of their own through Emmanuel Oyeleke as the stars aligned for the bet to come in.

"The amount this punter has won is simply staggering, but the sheer luck involved in this acca is the real story here," said Ladbrokes' Alex Apati.

"Three injury-time goals from around the grounds have made this the best bet we've seen - and probably will see - all year."

The bet was a mixture of both teams to score and match results which spanned matches from the Champions League, UEFA Youth League, Championship, League One, League Two and the Conference Premier.
