William Hill were ruing their luck on Tuesday after an online punter took the betting giants for a cool £353,000 for just a £1 wager!
Placing his 50p each-way accumulator online the punter placed his bets on this evening’s horse-racing action selecting seven horses from the night’s meetings.
Miss Dutee started the ball rolling with a win in the 4.50pm race at Brighton, and by the time the seventh and last winner had romped home in the 9pm at Kempton the lucky Scot had achieved an amazing 706128/1 accumulator!
Kate Miller, spokeswoman for William Hill, said: ‘’Seven is a lucky number for many, but even more so for this £1 punter! A life-changing amount of money, these type of bets strike once in a blue moon so we’ll be paying out with a smile – albeit a rueful one!’’
Thanks to williamhill.com’s Best Odds Guaranteed’ concession the payout will be over double the amount that might be paid out at a rival bookies. Any customer that places a bet on UK & Irish horse racing with Hills and takes an early-price will be guaranteed the larger return if the SP odds are bigger! William Hill’s lucky punter will now net £353,000, as opposed to £171,000 (accumulator odds of 341832/1) based on the traditional system.
