One lucky punter based in Newcastle has unbelievably gone and won £307,087.81 after landing five winners from Thursday's meeting at Chelmsford. These five winners were put in a Lucky 63 accumulator placed at a Coral shop in Throckley, Tyne and Wear, where the customer only staked £6.20 which is remarkable.
A Lucky 63 is a bet made up of 63 bets which involve 6 selections in different events. The bet includes 6 singles, 15 doubles, 20 trebles, 15 four-folds, 6 five folds and a sixfold accumulator.
The first horse that started the bet off was the biggest odds of the lot and amazingly Ask The Meter in the 6.15 went on to win the race at odds of 150/1. From there he went on to land a further four selections that all landed at the Chelmsford track and landed the unnamed punter his big payday.
(Credit Racing Post)David Stevens from Coral today said: “The customer is a regular in this shop and, as far as we know right now, he doesn’t know he’s won this huge amount, as he hasn’t been back to the shop to check the results yet. He’s in for a wonderful surprise when he does come in.
“It’s rare enough that a 150-1 shot wins, so for The Meter to win at those odds and then set the ball rolling on this remarkable bet, which also included winners at 14-1 and 12-1, makes this one of the most – if not the most – spectacular winning bets we have ever seen.
“There was a further twist in that the punter actually staked the bet as if it was a 10p each-way Lucky 31, featuring five selections, so because he included six selections to make it a Lucky 63, the bet was settled in proportion, at 56 per cent, but either way we’re sure the customer will be delighted with his evening’s work. We look forward to congratulating him on his extraordinary foresight!”
