Big betting wins – Punter takes Ladbrokes to the cleaners with £250k pay day at Chester

A life-changing sum of money was won at Chester on Saturday.A life-changing sum of money was won at Chester on Saturday.

One lucky punter predicted the first six winners at Chester on Saturday, forcing Ladbrokes to hand over a huge pay-out of over £250k.

The North London shop punter placed a 20p win Lucky 63 and a 50p each-way accumulator on the first six winners at Chester, landing himself a life-changing sum of £262,594.70 in total.

With wins for Logician and Magical in the big races of the day, this pay-out was definitely the last thing we needed but we take our hats off to him. Said Ladbrokes spokesman, Nicola McGeady.

Given that not one of his selections went off favourite, you can only be hugely impressed by his remarkable predictions.

This incredible bet got off to the perfect start in Saturday’s opener, with Thomas Greatrex guiding 20/1 outsider Roseina’s Choice to victory in the opening maiden. Victory for Sextant in the Stand Cup, plus handicap triumphs for Diocletian and Praxeology meant the bet was still very much alive four races in.

Back-to-back triumphs for Dr Marwan Koukash-owned horses, Gabrial The Tiger and Gabrial The Wire brought this incredible bet home and the sounds of champagne corks popping will have been heard right across North London on Saturday evening.

Winning selections from Chester:

Roseina’s Choice – 20/1

Sextant – 7/2

Diocletian – 9/2

Praxeology – 9/2

Gabrial The Tiger – 14/1

Gabrial The Wire – 11/2
