There was a stunning win for a punter that needs to be told, in order to offer inspiration for bettors. The Paddy Power customer had placed a £10 deposit on her account ahead of the weekend and came out with a five-figure sum from it.
The woman, from Northern Ireland, had used half of her deposit on an accumulator covering the final day of the Premier League season. While that one didn’t pan out, the other £5 had gone to a horse racing each way fivefold.
That one paid out. Big. While Sunday saw a lot of upsets in the world of racing, the 25-year-old lady, placed her £2.50 EW fivefold bet (total stake £5) at 8.50am on Friday, May 10th and by 3 pm, she had pocketed a £53, 228.12 after backing winners at Market Rasen, Chester and Ascot.
The horses which had been backed were Sha La La La Lee (13.50, Chester), Final Song (14.00, Ascot), Forest Ranger (14.25, Chester), Kesia (14.35 Ascot) and the aptly named Safe Home (14.45, Market Rasen) who made sure the bet struck gold to the tune of £53,000.
The lucky punter admitted that horse racing wasn’t her thing “I wouldn’t know one end of a horse to the other, but I knew Ascot was on so I went from there and literally just picked the names of horses I was drawn to,” she explained last night.
“I didn’t know a thing until I went online this evening to see how they ran and saw my balance. I thought there had been a mistake so I logged out and logged back into my Paddy Power account again and saw it still there. I couldn’t believe it! I rang my Daddy. He couldn’t believe it either!” she laughed.
A life-changing sum of money was won recently by a Kildare punter, who enjoyed a stunning day of racing success. They had played a €2.50 bet too leave bookmaker Boylesports digging deep into their pockets.
Big wins like that don’t come about without some ambitious betting of course. This successful bet was sevenfold accumulator from the recent Punchestown Festival and it returned €84,000. Staggeringly, more than half of that total was actually through bonuses.
The 7 fold acca actually won €36,373.62 on its own. However, when the bet was settled, the best odds guaranteed that Boylesports offer bumped the winnings up to a whole new level. It added a whopping €48,277.71 on to the bet.
The best odds guarantee ensures that punters are paid out when they finish with bigger prices than what they were when the bet was struck.
Musical Slave (7/1), Zero Ten (13/8), Elimay (5/1) and Minella Indo (5/1) all did the business for the punter in the opening races of the day, before Ruby Walsh delivered a win on Kemboy, the jockey bringing the curtain down on his career.
So when 1/2 selection Colreavy and 13/8 shot Gypsy Island won the 6.40 and 7.45 respectively, that made it sevens wins from seven predictions for the punter.
Lawrence Lyons, Spokesperson for Boylesports said: “We have no doubt that our big winner in Kildare will remember this day for a very long time and rightly so.
“To scoop over €84,000 from a flutter of just €2.50 is an absolute masterstroke, but they deserve every cent because not everyone can nail 7 winners on one racecard. We send them massive congratulations!”
Boylesports have announced a big winner on the horse racing from Wolverhampton last Friday. The punter in question got a huge €9,632 from a bet of just €15 on the all-weather card. The stake itself was on a 0.5 each way Lucky 15 bet.
So it was an ambitious gamble but one that managed to pay off at the end of the night. Diamond Reflection (7/1) ran home in the 5.10 race at Wolverhampton to kick the beat off into winning gear. Then Grey Destiny (12/1) War And Glory (7/1) followed it up in the 6.15 and 6.45 meetings.
Then there was a half hour wait before the final pick of the night took to the track. That final runner was an 8/1 shot Perfect Refuge, who came home to see the punter claim the massive winning in what BoyleSports described as a ‘savvy’ selection from their customer.
Lawrence Lyons, spokesperson for BoyleSports said: “These horses weren’t all favourites so we have to tip our hats the savvy picks made by our online customer. It was the perfect start to the year and we hope they enjoy splashing out with their winnings which nearly hit €10,000 from their €15 stake.”
Sunday’s horse racing action from Fairyhouse landed a nice windfall for a Meath punter. They collected a nice €11,000 win from a Lucky 15. The punter had played a €3 Lucky 15 bet (€45 stake) on the afternoon action at Fairyhouse.
The action on the bet all kicked off with a win for Chief Justice at 5/1, a narrow win by pretty much a nostril and nothing more. Delta Work at 10/3 followed up and then when a big 16/1 shots Dinnie’s Vinner came home for three wins for three, the bet got really exciting.
There was then an hour’s wait for Wonder Laish to just about hang on and get the win in the 3.10 pm.
The bet landed the punter a nice €10,749 from Boylesports, but a 10% bonus came into effect as the bet had four winners, bringing the total windfall to €11,823.90.
Boylesports’ Aoife Heffron said: “We are delighted to see one of our customers scoop such a fantastic windfall this close to Christmas and hope that their €11,823.90 makes for a very special Christmas for them and their loved ones.”
It is the stuff that dreams are made of. A punter turned their €1 Lucky 15 into a whopping €100k this week on Tuesday evening. The bet was struck at Paddy Power on horse racing action.
The first leg was Sfumato in the 15.40 at Catterick who came home at a big 9/1 price. It was then a wait for the action from Newcastle were Consequences (16/1), Burford Brown (9/2) and Glengarry who rounded off the full house at as a staggering 66/1 odds winner in the final race of the evening.
So the entire each way wager certainly didn’t rely on any strong favourites to come through the field. It was a pretty astonishing feat of betting landing all of those winners at big odds right from the get-go.
What did that mean for the winner? A pretty satisfying return of €112,908.
Two punters, both from Louth made bookmaker Boylesports dig deep into their pockets over the weekend as the bettors scooped winnings of over €12,000 between them last Friday.
Both punters had played a €1 Lucky 15 bet with the bookmaker on Friday evening’s racing.
One of them had picked out four winners from Newcastle which included 12/1 shot Mudawwan to pocket a cool €7,292.
The second punter picked up a €5,190 return with three selections from Dundalk and one from Newcastle in their Lucky 15. Both of the winners were from Louth.
Boylesports’ Lawrence Lyons said: “The results just weren’t going our way at Dundalk and Newcastle with winners coming at us from all angles and we must congratulate both our Louth punters, who unbeknownst to each other, served us a Friday night mauling between them with their astute picking.”
