But what are the biggest ever sports betting wins in the UK? Here are the three largest on record!

#1. Winning £650,000 (A £100 Stake at Odds of 6,542/1)

Let’s face facts; eight-fold accumulators are unlikely to come in at the best of time. But what if you place the bet in-play and at a time when all eight of your selections are already losing, with the odds having peaked with just 20 minutes left to play.

For one punter, this was the right time to act, as he confirmed his eight-fold acca with a £100 stake at staggering odds of 6,542/1.

Suddenly, the results started to roll in, with just one outstanding at the matches entered stoppage time.

Then, with seconds left, Coventry netted a last-gasp winner to secure the win, earning our lucky bettor a cool £650,000 payout!

#2. Winning £585,000 (An £0.80 stake at Odds of 683,738/1)

Next up is a punter from Malta, who managed to earn a staggering £585,000 payout from a huge, 19-fold acca bet that featured combined odds of 683,738/1).

Incredibly, the return was generated from a paltry stake of just £0.80, with William Hill completing the payout back in 2011.

Featuring 18 short-priced favourites who were heavily backed to win, all was going well for our punter prior to Liverpool’s clash against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.

Our man had backed the unfancied Reds to win here, with the game tied at 1-1 entering into the last five minutes. Then, Liverpool fullback Glen Johnson popped up with an 87th-minute winner, which may well be one of the most valuable goals that the defender ever scored!

#3. Winning £500,000 (A £0.30 Stake at Odds of 1.6 Million/1

In this case, our named punter Mick Gibbs took a different route to success, predicting the winners of nine football competitions (along with Rugby Union top-flight and Country Cricket titles) ahead of the 2000/01 season.

Staking just £0.30 at odds of 1.6 million/1, the bet was worth a cool £500,000, although few would have expected it to have even the merest chance of coming in.

However, eight of Gibbs’ predictions came in during the season, until on the Champions League final between Bayern Munich and Valencia.

Gibbs had backed Bayern to win, but Valencia led after just three minutes through a Gaizka Mendieta penalty. Stefan Effenberg replied with a spot kick of his own, with this tense and tight encounter going to a shootout.

Few would have been more nervous than our punter, but all of his dreams came true when Oliver Kahn made a crucial penalty save and Bayern’s name was engraved on the trophy.
