Punter turns £25 into £20,000 with series of audacious greyhound bets

Many punters may have their eyes firmly on the World Cup in Qatar – but one lucky gambler has cashed in on the greyhound racing.

A William Hill customer arrived for a greyhound meet at Wolverhampton's Monmore Green Stadium – and left over £20,000 richer.

The punter enjoyed an unforgettable evening – where his modest stake was turned into the huge five-figure sum over the space of four lucky greyhound races.

It has been revealed that the lucky winner had an audacious £0.03 combination treble across the four races in Wolverhampton, which came to a total stake of just over £25.

And he walked away with nearly £22,000 after picking three successful runners in the 2:23, 3:58, 4:58 and 5:54 races.

William Hill Spokesperson Lee Phelps said: “While all the focus has been on the World Cup in Qatar, one of our customers was having a night to remember at Monmore in Wolverhampton.

“They had a £0.03 combination forecast treble on four greyhound races which came to a total stake of £25.92, and after all four went the punter’s way, he was £21,834.60 richer!”

Every UK Greyhound race and selected Irish and Australian races are available to watch on William Hill’s dedicated greyhound channel, Betting TV2 online and on the app as well as from the race tracks.

And this huge victory for the lucky punter comes amidst growing calls from leading animal rights charities to ban greyhound racing in the coming years.

Dogs Trust, the RSPCA and Blue Cross are pushing for a nationwide ban for greyhound racing within the next five years, as it is 'inherently dangerous'.

Paula Boyden, veterinary director at Dogs Trust, recently claimed: "We have come to the conclusion the sport is inherently dangerous and should be banned."
