The search is on for a punter sitting on a potential £650k!

A betting shop punter is potentially sitting on a £650,000 fortune… and may not even know it!

The Totescoop6 punter has already ‘scooped’ the win fund of almost £400,000 by selecting all six winners in the popular weekend TV bet, but also has the chance to go for the bonus fund, which stands at a staggering £251,996!

The £2 bet was placed in a shop in Newcastle and Totepool are urging people in, and around, the surrounding area to check their bets and ask anyone who may have placed a bet to do the same in the hope of finding the lucky winner.

If the winning ticket is not presented by 2pm tomorrow then they will be too late to go for the £250k bonus fund, which is there to be won if he/she can select the winner of the John Smith’s Northumberland Plate (which will ironically take place at Newcastle racecourse this weekend, weather permitting!), but will still be entitled to the £394,487 they have already won.

Totepool staff suspect that the winner perhaps isn’t aware of the winning bet, given that there were lots of non-runners last Saturday.

According to the rules of the bet, any chosen non-runners are automatically defaulted to the favourites, so to give punters a fair chance.

Got something to say?
