Punter Wins £823K from £19 Bet
An online gambler in the UK has won £823,000 from a bet of just £19 placed at Coral, the biggest ever horse racing payout in the bookmaker’s history.
The punter, who has asked to remain anonymous, placed an accumulator bet on five horses running at Punchestown last Friday afternoon. However, he remained oblivious to his win for a number of hours until he come home early in the morning after a night out and checked the racing results.
He said that he has been placing accumulator bets almost every day for the last two decades and that winning is “the realisation of a lifetime dream.” He said that he doesn’t know what he is going to do with the money but that it will change his life. Simon Clare, Coral PR Director, said: “This is the most incredible big-win story that we have ever encountered and a just-reward for our customer for twenty years of perseverance placing these ‘small-stake big-win’ bets day-in day-out.”
