Incredible odds of 11 million to one had to be beaten by an immensely lucky William Hill punter who won GBP 209 731 on a GBP15.84 wager placed on a series of accumulator-style bets.
Namely, one of the bets required eight horses to achieve the top four placings in eight races, and it was precisely this 2p bet that brought the punter, who decided to remain anonymous, a large chunk of the money - GBP 111 294.
'I've had a couple of four-figure wins in the past, but I never expected this. I'm going to chill out over the next few days thinking about how to spend the money, but it'll go a long way in the current climate,' the punter said, adding: 'I'll probably pay off the mortgage, and I'm a bit of a car fan, so I might see about a vintage sports car.'
Regarding their new big winner, William Hill spokesperson Kate Miller said: "This is one of the luckiest bets we've ever seen. Accumulators are incredibly popular bets to place and a couple of times a year we'll be hit by a large winner, but to see one with penny stakes is almost unique.'
