Sports betting doesn’t just excite patrons because of the local sports game and the giddy feeling of cheering on every bettor’s favorite team. It also gives the thrill of money risk, to whether a bettor goes home with more bucks or none at all.
What are the odds of winning big shots in sports betting or online slot games in Malaysia over just one night? It might be really low in terms of luck, but few people have snatched these overwhelming jackpots through their bets and wits!
Anonymous Bettor – $14 Million
During the 2017 World Series, an anonymous bettor won $14million on November 1 with a successful bet between the L.A. Dodgers and the Houston Astros game. It is reported that the anonymous bettor had multiple bets placed on different bookmakers around Las Vegas and let his bets ride up to six games.
Steve Whiteley – £1.45 Million
From a £2 or $2 bet to £1.45 million or about $1,825,274 million, a 61-year-old heating engineer bagged the fortune in 2011 with a free horse racing ticket. He matched six horses on the Exeter Tote or Pari-mutuel Jackpot, where he even selected one horse that has lost its last 28 races, yet luck was on his side that day.
Fred Craggs – $1,258,288
After staking a small 50p, 60-year-old fertilizer salesman, Craggs became a millionaire through his bet on an eight-leg parlay that included different horse races worldwide. He was not aware of his massive winnings not until he returned to his bookmaker to place another bet.
These are just some of the names that will prove to you, winning fortune through sports betting isn’t impossible. With some luck and research to help your chances increase, you might just hit the next big prize. But remember to place your bets on registered and trusted bookmaker or online betting in Malaysia.
