Two weeks. The Bahamas. On him
Every so often, we here at Paddy Power stumble upon some brave punters. We look at these men or women with a little bit of pride, a little bit of apprehension, but mainly, we don’t think they have a hope.
One such occasion happened over the last couple of days, when one online punter looked ahead to the weekend racing.
Putting a total of £45 on two 5-fold racing accums and one 4-fold acca, we figured we had him.
First up, Friday and the 2:00 at Lingfield. Apache Glory gets his first 5-fold off the ground. Half an hour later 13/2 shot Clive Clifton comes up, and brings up the second leg.
The Friday afternoon run continued at Exeter, when Fourovakind took the handicap chase and another leg came up. Suddenly Leo Luna‘s win at Warwick at the same time saw another leg come through. Back at Lingfield Dr Drey’s victory in the 4:40 and his accumulators are looking good.
He cashes out on his fourfold for £5,103.71.
A night to sleep on it, and he’s back again in the 1:45 on Saturday at Lingfield. Lightscameraaction wins at 10/1, and our punter is now waiting on one horse (Furia Cruzada) to return him nearly £1.3 million of a payout.
Just as Cruzada is about to set off, he cashes out one of his five folds for £77,133.11.
Furia Cruzada comes third, thus losing his final 5-way.
Which means that this now Hall of Fame punter stung Paddy Power for £82,236.82 from three losing bets. This comes two weeks after a football fan took us down for over 4k on Leicester.
Three. Losing. Bets. For Eighty Two. Thousand Pounds
That, ladies and gentlemen, is how you do it
