One lucky punter landed this afternoon’s totescoop6 after Swincombe Flame’s victory in the EBF/DBS Mares’ Standard Open National Hunt Flat Race Final landed him a total of £380,365.
The winner placed his Scoop6 in a Choicebet shop in Snodland, Kent and staked just £2 on the bet. Only the one ticket remained heading into the final leg and this means the winner now has the chance to add a further £277,417 to his haul when he goes for the bonus race next weekend which is likely to be the totesport.com Midlands Grand National at Uttoxeter.
“It’s been an incredible week for the Tote and not only has Steve Whiteley become an instant millionaire for just £2 but a punter in Kent has won a fortune for the same stake on this weekend’s Scoop6,” totepool spokesman George Primarolo told betrescue.com “£1.8m has been won by two small staking punters in the past seven days and is a great advert for betting with the Tote just before Cheltenham.”
A total of £272,232 was bet into this afternoon’s pool and there were 63 winners of the bonus fund, each of whom picks up £864.20.
The totejackpot will operate throughout the Cheltenham Festival this week and there will be a guaranteed £100,000 in the win fund every day.
