Paddy Power Sports has had to crack open the coffers after one very lucky punter secured a massive prize of €32,600 with a stunning horse racing accumulator win. The winning bet was a tenfold accumulator that featured ten race-favourite horses, which the victorious gambler backed with a €10 stake.
The anonymous winner from Wexford, in Ireland, was forced to endure a torturous wait before being allowed to pick up his prize because a steward’s enquiry was needed to decide the winner of the last race on his accumulator. Luckily for him, Atmospheric High was declared the winner in the 9:20pm race in Dundalk, completing his tenfold bet and bagging him the €32,600 return.
After the win, a Paddy Power spokesperson said of the punter: “Having faced a steward’s enquiry on the last leg it’s fair to say that he’s earned it. This is truly weapons grade punting and I hope he enjoys his winnings.”
The winning accumulator featured the selections listed below:
An accumulator is a bet made up of a number of wagers, in which all selections need to be correct in order to win. Accumulators can offer punters potentially massive returns from a relatively small stake, as the winnings from each correct selection are then placed on the next wager.
