Kiwi Sports Betting Punter Wins a Fortune

It's off to Las Vegas we go!

Recent news of a Kiwi punter winning an incredible $800,000 on a multi sport bet at the horse races has spread like wildfire. The unnamed man was playing at the Ellerslie races and called it right with his magical six-horse pick.

All the luck plus all the loot
The 37-year old punter from Auckland picked the six winners and won $776,245 - which by all accounts is a record payday at the TAB. But what surprised everyone, including the bettor himself, is that this is his second massive payday in less than a year.

Las Vegas here we come
The punter has been so surprised by the results of the races that he has promised to fly out his 6 buddies to accompany him to Las Vegas. Picking a lucky group of 3 horses on the trot is serendipitous, but 6 in a row is nothing short of outstanding.

Here's how to celebrate after a mega-win
A glorious day at the races was capped off by drinks at the SkyCity Casino but no gambling was engaged in. All in all, the punter has won a $260,000 payout and a mega $776,245 payday within the same year.
