A wager placed with online bookie BetVictor netted over £37,000 for a lucky punter from Clitheroe.
The customer, whose identity has not been revealed, placed a “Super Heinz” combination bet on horse races at Kempton Park, Warwick and Wetherby last weekend.
Comprising 120 bets spread over seven events, and at 50p each way per bet, it was a bold and complex £120 gamble... but one which paid off.
BetVictor spokesman Charlie McCann explained: “Five of the customer’s seven selections won, with the other two unplaced, and, because of our Best Odds Guaranteed policy which enhanced his returns by an additional £5,500, his winnings came to a staggering £37,783.81 – not a bad start to the New Year for the lucky punter!”
If you fancy your chances, take care... as betting website aceodds.com explains: “The Super Heinz should only be considered in rare circumstances and by experienced punters – 120 bets can be an expensive proposition, but the winnings can be equally as large.”
