The €577k final day of the Premier League win

On the final day of the 2013/14 Premier League season, one Leinster-based customer of Paddy Power won a whopping €577,215.63 when he pulled off a nine-team bet.

He must have been pretty confident of choices because he staked €1,000.

As €477,000 obviously isn't enough, Paddy Power also threw in a €100,000 bonus.

Monaghan gambler turns €1 into €250k

This was described as "weapons grade punting" by Paddy Power.

In November, 2014 a Monaghan resident turned just €1 into €250,000 with an incredible ten-leg, win-draw-win, both teams to score bet.

And it all came down to a last-minute goal from Marseille’s Michy Batsuayi.

A late Christmas present

Late in 2013, one Boylesports customer got a belated Christmas present. A 95th minute equaliser from Jack Colback for Sunderland against Cardiff in a 2-2 draw clinched a 13-leg bet.

His stake was €20 and the return - a massive €451,082.47

Another Christmas present

A 20-team accumulator. You're just throwing your money away really. The chances of it winning are astronomical.

Just over two weeks ago, one Galway punter defied those odds though. He had a €5 bet, something to keep him entertained while he digested copious amounts duck fat roasted spuds over Christmas.

The winnings, a massive €421,000. The final leg came through on St. Stephen's Day.

Former inter-county manager lands insane horse racing and GAA bet

If Bryan Sheehan's free kick at the death in Kerry and Mayo's drawn All-Ireland semi-final had just a little bit more length then Niall Carew would not be on this list.

The former Waterford football manager had a draw (8/1) between the two sides as one of his bets in an incredible gamble that also featured three horses.

The first two legs of the bet were 10/1 shots, one in France and the other at Goodwood. Kieran O'Leary's equaliser for Kerry then set up Kalann, a 16/1 shot at the Curragh to bring it home.

He had a total of €50 staked with Boylesports, a €5 accumulator and a €3 Lucky 15, landing him €170,000.

The Dubliner that should be in the Accumulator Hall of Fame

Rory McIlroy was not the only one who benefited financially from his two Major wins last year.

One Dublin gambler had the Northern Irish golfer as part of three bets which won him a total of €117,000 with Paddy Power.

This one featured several short-priced horses and football teams but also McIlroy to win the PGA Championship at Valhalla. It netted him €43,000.

These two had come in earlier in the summer when McIlroy won The Open Championship.

As good an application as you'll ever see for the Accumulator Hall of Fame.
