Incredible last race that was, so funny that the fellow had a seemingly rubbish selection for the last leg, he's the only one left in and it wins! Tote must be gutted. Imagine how much today's take would have been on a starting pool of £2m+. Although having said that it's given them plenty of publicity so they should have a few more people having a bash over the coming weeks.
I mentioned it last night but I know Steve Whiteley. Couldn't believe it when I saw his face!
He lives in my home town of North Tawton in the middle of Devon. Services my mum's boiler and is a friend of my parents. Unreal. Good luck to him!
six winners were: Semi Colon, 2-1 favourite; Black Phantom, 12-1; Ammunition, 16-1; Mr Bennett, 16-1; Lundy Sky, 5-1 and Lupita, 12-1.
in all that excitment anyone ever noticed that the guy took home less then it'd be from accumulator?
he was lucky he was the only winner, so he took it all wihout sharing the pot with others but acca at SPs would pay 879137/1 which means his £2 would pay back £1,758,276 at industry SPs
Betfair SPs: 3.20, 14.97, 24, 19, 6.51, 13
multi prices after 5% cut were: 3.09 * 14.27 * 22.85 * 18.1 * 6.23 * 12.4 = 1,408,824
£2 would pay £2,817,649 (double what he got from tote - I'd feel robbed )
I was thinking something similar, cleaner as I watched the six races repeated on ATR yesterday morning and saw some of the big prices on a few of the winners. It is worth noting though that the maximum payout on bf multiples is £1million per customer per day. And also that were a bookmaker to be subject to a potential £2.7m liability on the last leg of an SP six fold horse acca they would undoubtedly force the price of the last leg down and in that instance there is no way Lupita in the final leg would have gone off at 12-1. If he'd taken the prices though when he placed his acca then I'm sure as you say he would have been considerably better off, assuming the bookie didn't have a max payout.
