Massive accumulator bet pays off netting £116,000 for jobless dad with MS

Raheem Sterling's goals helped seal the big win

A jobless dad recently diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis has won £116,000 on a 10-fold accumulator - making it easier to care for his young son.

Lucky George Wood, 22, placed just £5.05 at odds of roughly 23,000-1 with predictions dating back to September 28.

He bet on games from multiple leagues and competition, including the Premier League, Champions League, Championship, Scottish Premier League and Ligue 1.

His final forecast came good on Saturday when Manchester City thumped Bournemouth 5-1 - after predicting that both teams would score.

George, who had to give up work at a stonemason through injury, said the money would help look after his son Charlie, three.

He said: "For some reason, I had a feeling.

"I thought I was going to win but when it happened I couldn't believe it.

"I've always been close before but never won.

"Last week I booked to buy a new car before I even won. I only found out yesterday but I had some funny feeling I was going to win.

"I was shell-shocked. I watched all the games and everything I was saying was going to happen, did."

George also plans to pay off his mum's debts, buy a car with a personalised 'B311EVE' number plate and invest in the future for his son.

He was diagnosed with MS in April and worried how he would care for his son.

He said: "In October last year I started having back pain. I was told I had slipped a disc and had to leave my job as a stonemason.

"In April I was in hospital for a week when they told me I had Multiple Sclerosis.

"I didn't expect to have it and it was a big shock. From a slipped disc to Multiple Sclerosis was a big difference.

"I want to be my own boss now so I don't let anyone down.

"The money will help out family wise. It will help everyone. It means I can look after my son."

George netted a whopping £116,425.35 with his bets, which also included Manchester United to beat Wolfsburg with both teams scoring.

He also said Celtic would beat Hamilton Athletic and PSG would beat Marseille, with all four teams scoring.

He added: "I was trying to find the teams that I thought I knew would get at least one goal.

"I was just looking at each of the games and saying what I thought would happen.

"I'm never doing it again though. It's too much. It's not very nice."
