Fivefold acca win earns over £5.7k
A Coral customer from Aberdeen used £10 of free bets on a weekend football fivefold acca this Saturday that returned over £5,750!
Gary Wood backed Championship leaders Newcastle United to win at Preston North End, League One pair Fleetwood Town and Sheffield United for respective home victories over Gillingham and managerless MK Dons, and League Two pacemakers Carlisle United and Plymouth Argyle to beat Crawley Town and Colchester United. All were victories with both teams to score.
After hitting Preston for six in EFL Cup action last midweek, Newcastle recorded another victory over them – only this time at Deepdale. Jermaine Beckford’s late strike proved insignificant as Aleksandar Mitrovic bagged an earlier second-half brace.
Asa Hunter’s volley secured all three points for Fleetwood after Jake Hessenthaler cancelled out David Ball’s opener at Highbury. Billy Sharp struck on the hour as the Blades got the better of the Dons at Bramall Lane, despite Darren Potter levelling things up after Stefan Scougall scored first.
Jabo Ibehre got Carlisle off and running to a 3-1 victory over Crawley, with Jason Kennedy and Luke Joyce also scoring before half-time. A stoppage time consolation for the visitors couldn’t prevent the Cumbrians winning.
Ryan Donaldson, meanwhile, grabbed a late winner for Plymouth over Colchester in a match where the referee sustained injury and had to be replaced.
“Totally amazed. Still can’t believe it happened. Went from disbelief to ecstatic.”
Far from being spooked by the bookies during Halloween season, Gary is now better off following a more than £5,700 payout! He took to Twitter to share news of his big win:

“Away to book a holiday. Totally buzzing,” Gary tweeted showing his betting slip and winning fivefold acca.
We also spoke exclusively to him, and Gary added: “Totally amazed. Still can’t believe it happened. Went from disbelief to ecstatic. Couldn’t sleep that night; it all felt like a dream.
“Next clear any debt, book a holiday for the family and amazing Christmas. For me, this changes a lot. Thank you.”
Significant wins like this betting with Coral aren’t as rare as you might think. Back in August, two brothers from Hertfordshire scooped a life-changing £100k after playing the Football Jackpot in one of our many shops.
