UK Electrician Wins $2.4 Million From $2 Bet From Sportsbook

An elderly semi-retired heating engineer won 1.5 m million pounds ($2.4 million dollars) from a 2 pound bet when he chose six horses in six consecutive races that all won.

Mr. Steve Whiteley, 60, went to the racing track with his two buddies and a bottle of whiskey. They took the bus as none had more than 5 quid in their pockets. They got inside for free using a promotional coupon.

The bet he wanted to place would have cost 30 pounds so he instead chose 6 horses in 6 races and put two quid on the Tote Jackpon which has grown substantially. For the past year nobody was able to predict all 6 winners in 6 races so the jackpot kept rolling over week after week.

Mr. Whiteley, who was tanning a beer during the interview, states that he only goes to the track with his friends once or twice a year, and that playing poker is his true passion. Sometimes he uses an Online sports betting service, when he hasn’t got enough money to get to the track.
Out of the 363,000 tickets sold that day during the first race, only 9,076 tickets had the first horse picked correctly.
By the fourth race, Mr. Whitley was the only person still in play. “And then at the last he said, ‘There is only one left and it’s this one’. I couldn’t believe it. I didn’t look – I am shaking like a leaf.”
When asked what he plans to do now, he eloquently replied – “Gonna tan some bevies and party!”
