Miss Dutee started the ball rolling with a win in the 4.50pm race at Brighton, and by the time the seventh and last winner had romped home in the 9pm at Kempton the lucky Scot had achieved an amazing 706128/1 accumulator.
Kate Miller, spokeswoman for William Hill, said, "Seven is a lucky number for many, but even more so for this £1 punter! A life-changing amount of money, these type of bets strike once in a blue moon so we’ll be paying out with a smile – albeit a rueful one."
Thanks to williamhill.com’s "Best Odds Guaranteed" concession the payout will be nearly double the amount that might be paid out at a rival bookies. Any customer that places a bet on UK, Irish or South African horse racing with William Hill and takes an early-price will be guaranteed the larger return if the SP odds are bigger.
William Hill’s lucky punter will now net over £353,224 - that's a 44% bigger payout than the SP accumulator and nearly four-times more than the prices the client took when placing the bet.
So remember, it pays to take the price at William Hill where you'll get Best Odds Guaranteed on all UK, Irish and South African horse racing.
