Southampton Man Hits Big Time With £245,000 Win!

A 34 year old man from Southampton is celebrating a life changing win after betting just £30 with William Hill. The mechanic, who wishes to remain anonymous, picked all seven winners in an accumulator bet at Wolverhampton on Wednesday.

The married punter, who also has three children, is planning on buying his very first house with the winnings.

“I chose the horses based on their names. I looked at ones who were favourites and selected them at random based upon names that I liked. I was watching the results come in and after the first three had won, I started texting the wife. When the seventh had won, I was jumping around the place. It’s the biggest high I have ever had.” 

However, the mystery mechanic now plans on keeping his feet firmly on the ground.

“I’ll be working this weekend and I don’t plan on telling many people, else they’ll all be wanting discounts!”


12.50 Wolverhampton – Whitecliff Park (odds 5/4)

1.20 Wolverhampton – Artful Mind (odds 9/2)

1.50 Wolverhampton – Mr Boss Man (odds 7/4)

2.20 Wolverhampton – Oakley Girl (odds 4/1)

2.50 Wolverhampton – Perfect Cracker (odds 5/1)

3.20 Wolverhampton – Bank Of Gibraltar (odds 7/2)

3.50 Wolverhampton – Ohsosecret (odds 11/4)

The exact details of the bet were a £10 each-way accumulator on the seven horses and a further £10 win accumulator on the same seven horses, totally £30 in stakes.
