One Sky Bet punter has converted 15p into over £20,000 with an audacious four-fold accumulator on Saturday's Football League action.
The bet was for both teams to score in both halves of Derby v Brighton in the Championship, Doncaster v Crewe in League 1 and Luton v Northampton and Notts County v Newport in League 2, a 151,150/1 shot with the Football League sponsor.
The bet looked dead and buried with three goals required at the 88th minute of the 3pm kick-offs, with only Northampton's 4-3 win at Luton and Notts County's 4-3 victory over Newport delivering at that point.
Chris Martin then earned Derby a point in the top-of-the-table clash with Brighton to complete a third leg of the four-fold bet, but Doncaster v Crewe remained at 1-1 in the second half at the 90-minute mark.
However, Callum Saunders put the Railwaymen on track for victory before Cameron Stewart and Andy Williams secured a remarkable win for the hosts with 93rd and 95th minute efforts, landing the huge accumulator in the process.
Sky Bet's Sandro Di Michele said: "Hats off to the punter, who must have been going wild as the drama unfolded at Doncaster to pull off one of the most remarkable wins we've ever seen.
"It's certainly the biggest win we've witnessed from a 15p stake and we're just relieved that they didn't have more money on it!"
