Steve Whiteley, 2014

Amount won: £1,450,000

60-year-old Steve Whiteley picked six winners at Exeter Racecourse, with the final winner, Lupita coming in at 12/1.

His £2.00 stake in his accumulator netted him a ridiculous £1,450,000. Rich for life.

Fred Craggs, 2008

Amount won: £1,000,000

Fred Craggs from Yorkshire beat odds of 2,000,000/1 to successfully turn a 50p Horse Racing accumulator into £1 million. The last horse to come in was named Dream Come True.

Anonymous, 2017

Amount Won: £823,000

A five fold accumulator earned a Leicestershire gambler over £800,000. Placing £19 on five horses at Punchestown, the punter received the highest ever pay-out on horse racing, with the biggest odds he backed lying at 33/1.

Anonymous, 2014

Amount won: £650,000

A punter from London turned £100 into £650,000 with a very bold bet. With just 20 minutes left on the clock of Saturday’s 3pm games, the brave punter put eight £10 sevenfold accumulators on alongside a £20 eightfold accumulator on. By 5.45pm they’d earned themselves a huge jackpot.

Anonymous, 2011

Amount won: £585,000

An anonymous fan from Malta bagged over half a million with his first 18 games going perfectly. The last game was between Chelsea and Liverpool with the former going in as favourites. The fan had backed Liverpool and with three minutes left on the clock Glen Johnson popped up to bag the £585,000 winner.

Turning 80p into £585,000, what a bet.

I had an account for 30 seconds before live chat saying that I have been banned. Stated it was a \'business decision\'. Luckily I did not deposit any money.I\'d say the margins and free-flowing capital are pretty tight with this one. Stay away or you might not see your money again!

Despite the poor reviews, I gave it the benefit of doubt. Unfortunately the reviews turned out to be true. First they failed to pay out on a winning bet. After several emails and couple of days later they eventually did pay out only to restrict my account to max winnings of £1. This essentially meant I couldn\'t place any bets so I withdrew my money so I can close my account. It took nearly a month to receive the money into my bank account and every time contacted customer services they said the withdrawal was being processed, a month to process £250!!
