Mega Fortune: Punter lands €355k Super Heinz with final leg letting him down for seven figure sum

The Dublin punter landed himself a 'Mega Fortune' on the racing at Leopardstown

A bloke from North Dublin put the ‘Super’ in Super Sunday by landing €355,807 from a seven selection each-way Super Heinz bet on the racing from Leopardstown this afternoon.

He selected a horse from each race bar the 4.30pm, the penultimate race of the card which was won by 2/5 favourite Foxrock.

His selections, shown below, included Who’s That, Grand Partner, Mega Fortune, Bacardys, Disko, Sizing John and finally, Imperial Way.

His bet of choice was a 50 cent each-way Super Heinz, which consists of 120 bets on seven selections.

As the first six legs of his bet began to trickle in – at odds ranging from 10/3 SP through to 14/1 – a seven-figure payout looked agonizingly close, but was let down by Imperial Way in the last, who placed third despite leading for most of the race.

A huge chunk of his winnings, though, came thanks to ‘Best Price Guaranteed‘ – meaning he pocketed an extra €121,954! Paddy, being the generous swine he is, offers BPG on all UK & Irish racing. It means that if you take a price on a horse and the Starting Price (SP) is bigger, we’ll pay you out on the larger odds. You Beauty!

Spokesman Paddy Power said: “I’m not sure I’ve picked six winners all year, let alone in one afternoon.

“The gods are obviously smiling down on this chap – who’s been getting lucky before even Valentine’s Day.”
