One of the biggest horse racing events of the year - The Grand National is well behind us, however, some of the memories still stuck with us. One of the leading online betting operators Betfred
had launched one of the best promotional offers for the event, back in a day. Punters simply had to place their wagers to get automatically included in a prize draw and a chance to win a brand new SUV.
Whether you believe it or not, we found the main. However, the story behind it is way more fascinating than the prize itself. Jan Weaver, a 55-year-old bus driver, who is rather a once-in-a-year punter, decided to place her wager on the world-famous horse racing event. Picking four of her favourite horses and backing them with £10, the lady had no idea that she was included in the prize draw. Unfortunately, Jan lost on all of her selections and let it go. What happened in the next 24 hours was a true miracle. The system selected Jan’s losing wager as the main winner awarding her with a brand new Land Rover Evoque worth £53,000.
What a flip off just a tiny £10 wager, right? What’s your luckiest sports betting story?
