A comprehensive guide to the maximum payouts offered by Europe's top bookmakers.
Online sports betting is big business and in today's world of big accumulator wins making sure that you place your football, horse racing or golf bet with a bookmaker who has the maximum betting payout is critical. Maxpayout.co.uk is here to ensure that punters know who to bet with when it comes to making sure that you receive what you actually win.
With literally thousands of football matches, horse races and other sporting events to bet on each month, the opportunity of turning a small stake into big money happens on a regular basis, so let us take you through the key sports and online bookmakers who offer punters the best opportunity to maximise their winnings.
We all remember one of the great moments in horse racing history when Frankie Dettori defied odds of 25,000/1 and won all seven races at Ascot in 1996. One lucky punter from Morecambe that day forced his local bookmaker to pay out £550,000. Since then the rise of the internet has made betting convenient, easy and profitable for switched-on punters. Take the weekend of 12th/13th January 2014 when the 7 top teams in the Premier League all won, delivering hundreds of thousands of winning accumulators leading to bookmakers collectively paying out over £35 million. Fact is big accumulator payouts are now a fact of life for bookmakers who actively encourage us to place them with ACCA bonuses and ACCA insurances the norm in today's competitive sportsbook environment.
One football punter in November 2014 landed a 6,452/1 8-fold accumulator which turned £100 into £650,000 with William Hill. And don't think it's just the bigger stakes guys who win big. A Galway-based punter in February 2015 scored a 17-fold 206,261/1 accumulator which turned €1 into over €200,000. We've also seen a Cambridge man scoop £170,000 from a £1 ACCA in recent weeks. It happens!
So in a world where massive payouts are becoming increasingly more common, it makes sense to know what the maximum payouts are across the different sports - yes they vary from sport to sport. After all you want to ensure that all of your winnings are delivered and not taken away by the betting rules terms and conditions.
