Punter Wins £822,972.75 on £19 Bet at Coral

This story was published more than 5 years ago.

A UK punter hit it big recently when they won a huge £823,000 prize on a £19 bet at Coral when they placed a huge accumulator bet at Coral.

The gambler has chosen to remain anonymous but did give a bunch of details on his win. He placed a £19 accumulator on the Punchestown races. Speaking about his giant win he said, "I've been placing these accumulator bets pretty much every day for twenty years, and winning this bet is the realization of a lifetime dream. Over the years I've come close landing a big return a couple of times but kept hitting the woodwork, and now I've done it I feel remarkably calm. I don't know if I'll even carry on betting after this as I feel I've achieved my goal."

The big winner said that he wasn't aware of the win until his wife came in that night and checked the results. The big win comes after years of betting the ponies, which was inspired by his father.

A Coral PR Director named Simon Clare also commented, noting: "This is the most incredible big-win story that we have ever encountered and a just-reward for our customer for twenty years of perseverance placing these 'small-stake big-win' bets day-in day-out. There must be something in the water in Leicester, as the City's football team landed the biggest shock in football betting history last year winning the Premier League at odds of 5000/1, and now this inspired customer has landed the biggest ever horse-racing win with Coral of over £800k for just £19."

The winning ticket looked like this:

STAKED £19 RETURNS £822,972.75 FIVE WINNING SELECTIONS - 10/1 Das Mooser (3.40 Punchestown) - 9/2 Woodland Opera (4.20 Punchestown) - 7/1 Definite Ruby (4.55 Punchestown) - 10/1 Bacardys (6.05 Punchestown) - 33/1 Canardier (7.45 Punchestown) - (5 x £3 Fourfold Accumulators) - (1 x £4 Fivefold Accumulator)

This of course is a wonderful win. But if you are gambling for years, and losing mostly than winning, I am not sure that the profit this time is so large.. But still it is amazing.
