What is the biggest gambling win you've ever had? Anyone won a shit load?

I only tend to play with small stakes £5/£10/£20 so my biggest win is only around £400 but in the past 12 months I am around £400 up with 365 and up with Victor and PP too (don't really use anyone else unless they are a standout price on a horse)

I did see a mate win £2,500 one afternoon in William Hill to which he decided he would take his missus on a 2 week trip to Cape Verde, where on the 3rd day she told him she;d been having an affair for 6 months so he spent the next 12 days on his own in the bar by the sounds of things which was nice and awkward I imagine

Anyone else won a lot or got any funny related stories related to betting?

Working in a bookies tho, I've seen some pretty hilarious things.

One guy won about £6,000, bought his gf a wedding ring with it and she took the ring and fucked off. It was funny cos he was a c*** :fl: I think he won something like £6,132 and didn't give us a tip. Twat.

Haha, who do you work for?

I work at the offices of one of the bookies and some of the stories i've heard from customer services are absolutely class about some punters and some of stuff they come out with - quite disturbing at times

I won £402 last month off a £15 bet.

My best win was when I predicted us to beat Newport 5-0 on TFF and went and stuck some money on it on the day and it came in. That got me £200. Also once Real were 1-0 up against Barca and I had Barca to be winning at half time at 90/1. Stuck £2 on that, Messi scored literally as It submitted then again with the last kick of the half.

Worked in Betfred for about 4 months. Couldn't get out quick enough, I hated it.

you aren't the only one, i've been at the head offices in Birchwood for about 18 months now
The main problem was I absolutely detested the Assistant Manager. She is the most repulsive woman I have ever met and I ended up telling her to go fuck herself the day before I handed my notice in. 10 hour shifts with her were fucking horrific.

A team that used to be good
#10
I won £2880.00 on a 10 team accumulator about 3 years ago. Was panicking like mad as I had all teams in apart from one (Leeds at home to Boro I think it was). All 9 games had finished and Leeds had about 5 minutes injury time and were drawing 0-0 (I had them to win), they got a penalty in the 93rd minute and scored, my head fell off and I ran around my house and garden wooping when the final whistle went!

Sure it was us? Can't remember us beating anyone with a last minute penalty in the last few years?
