UK Punter Scoops Life-Changing £134,396.72 From Fiver Flutter On Horses
A punter in the UK is celebrating a massive coup this weekend after landing a life-changing sum of cash from a simple £5 flutter on the horses.
The anonymous customer struck their wager online, placing a £2.50 each-way accumulator on five horses by the same trainer, four of which were running at Newmarket.
Tomfire kicked things off after being gambled in from 11/1 into 7/1 before the off in the 1.45, while over at York Lucander won the 2.05 at 9/2.
When 9/1 selection Max Vega and 16/1 pick Richenza won the 2.20 and 4.45 at Newmarket respectively, only one horse stood in the way of an astounding triumph.
All eyes fell on the 5.20 at Newmarket where Feliciana De Vega completed the five-timer for trainer Ralph Beckett.
That sent the UK punter into dreamland having picked him out at 9/2.
All four Newmarket winners were all ridden by jockey Harry Bentley and the prolific run saw the customer’s online balance boosted by a mega £134,396.72.
A second UK customer also cashed on the same winners, as their series of small trebles and four-folds saw them walk off with £9,186.85 from a total investment of £12.
