Mind-blowing £15m Scoop6 legs unveiled

Friday 23 May 2014

This Saturday’s totescoop6 will see the biggest ever betting prize offered on a British racecourse when the pools are expected to exceed £15m.

The six races that make up this momentous bet have been split between Catterick, Goodwood and Haydock.

 

The win fund currently stands at £6,874,345 having evaded punters for 12 weeks, whilst the bonus pot is worth £3,824,712 after rolling over for the best part of nine months.

 

The bet’s organisers totepool are predicting £10m will be staked by punters by the time the first leg goes off at 2:05, which would see the win fund hit £10m and the bonus surpass £5m.

 

Thousands of first time players are expected to throw their hat into the ring after the Scoop6 drew nationwide attention when £8 Ladbrokes punter Joe McGuire narrowly missed out on a £6.8m payout in a gripping final leg at Thirsk last weekend.

 

Joe will be in attendance at Haydock as a guest of Betfred boss Fred Done, who has generously offered him a free £1000 crack at this weekend’s Scoop6.

 

With such a vast amount of money up for grabs there is a genuine chance tomorrow’s Scoop6 could create the biggest winner in British betting history.  The existing record holder is Stuart Boland, who pocketed a whopping £1,132,657 in a Betfred shop on the Scoop6 in November 2004.

 

Betfred boss Fred Done said: "When I first bought the Tote these were the days I was dreaming of – a bet that could capture the attention of the whole country and not just the racing world.  

 

“The bet is now bigger than the National Lottery and a real life changing sum, it's the reason the bet was first introduced.  I want the Scoop6 to make millionaires."

 

totepool spokesman Andrew Griffiths added: “It promises to be a spectacular day not only for punters, but for racing as a whole.

 

“The build-up has had a Grand National feel to it and we expect many first time players will make a beeline for their local betting shop to place their £2 bet tomorrow morning.

 

“We're all hoping for a fairytale ending, which would see us create the biggest winner in British betting history.”

 

Betfred currently offer 2/5 that the Scoop6 will finally be won and 7/4 that it rolls over once again.

 

The totejackpot is at Haydock on Saturday, while the totetrifecta rollover race will be the Betfred Mobile Casino Silver Bowl Stakes (3:45 Haydock).
