Scoop6 makes eight millionaires

Victory for Chatez in the Betfred Mobile Casino Silver Bowl Stakes at Haydock saw the Scoop6 landed by eight tickets.

A total of 122 tickets were still standing going into the last leg, and celebrations began after Fergus Sweeney drove the Alan King-trained 7/1 chance to a half-length success from Zarwaan. Of the 13 runners, Grevillea was the only horse not covered by Scoop6 players.

Each successful ticket returned 1,342,599 with the further opportunity to play for a bonus fund next Saturday which stands at a further 5,481,763.

Last weekend, Ladbrokes punter Joe Maguire came within a length and a quarter of claiming just short of 7million for his 8 stake when denied in the last race of six in the bet at Catterick.
