A Betfred regular went through the card at Carlisle – and won £55,395 from a £10 Lucky 31 wager.

The shopkeeper from Wales plans to splash his windfall on a Caribbean cruise with his wife and help pay for his grown-up children’s weddings, which he believes are on the way!

The 58-year-old should have won £25,000, but because of Betfred’s Best Odds Guaranteed promotion he more than doubled his total.

He said: “It took me about half an hour to make my selections. My view is that the course is so important, and then I look at the form.

“The children will be getting married at some point, so I’m putting money away for that – and then I’ll have a jolly, probably a cruise in the Caribbean with the wife.”

Betfred boss Fred Done said: “I’m delighted about this huge win, which just shows the value of sticking with us and picking up more than double thanks to our special offers.

“I hope this customer enjoys life on the ocean wave.”

All five of the jubilant winner’s selections were first past the post, including Iron Bridge, Wor Verge, Beauport and Good Risk It All.

But the big one was Grove Road, who drifted all the way out from 11/4 to 13/2 before his victory, causing the father-of-three’s windfall to more than double.
