We’ve covered a number of multiples / accumulator big wins on the site, listing many of them here. It’s not all win, win, win though and so when a read about a recent near miss, I thought to include it here.
This week an unlucky punter missed out on a staggering £340,000 when his scoop6 bet fell just short on bagging him the six figure sum. It was all going so well. The final leg of the scoop6 wasn’t even an outsider, instead of was favourite Growl, available at 4-1. Growl, running in the Ayr Gold Cup got off to a good start, was was eventually beaten by a length due to an impressive run from Tom Eaves, Brando.
Had Growl won the unlucky punter would’ve won the grand sum of £190,424 as well as a cool £150,000 bonus from Scoop6 operator Betfred. Of course as the old saying goes “you win some, you lose some”, but this must have been a particularly difficult loss to suffer for one unlucky man!
