Pensioner takes Ladbrokes for £37k after landing 20p Lucky 15

A general view of the betting ring.

A lucky Ladbrokes user was celebrating last night, after an optimistic 20p Lucky 15 came in to help him scoop over £37,000.

As punters up and down the country were left licking their wounds after a difficult afternoon for the favourites, one Ladbrokes was popping open the champagne. The winner, a pensioner from Rochdale, picked out three horses with odds ranging from 11/2 to 66/1 and rolled them into a 20p Lucky 15, with his stake totalling a measly £3.

He then looked on in wonder as Lariat upset a hot favourite in the first at Ayr, before Red Saree followed suit at Pontefract. 14/1 shot, Maid In India was the final leg of this speculative Lucky 15 and when he managed to win at Pontefract, the lucky punter had turned £3 into a staggering £37,000!

Nicola McGeady of Ladbrokes said: “It hasn’t been a day to remember for most punters with only three favourites winning in twenty-one races so far.”

“However for our Rochdale customer, it has been a very profitable afternoon indeed. After making some tremendous selections, we can only take our hats off to him.”

*The winning bet*

Lariat 1.30 Ayr at 11/2
Red Saree 2.10 Pontefract at 66/1
Maid In India 3.45 Pontefract at 14/1

(20p Lucky 15 – total stake £3)
