It was another successful weekend for punters in our Horse Racing pools at Colossus as we hosted meets from both the UK and Ireland, including a cross-card Saturday 7 where players had the chance to shoot for a HUGE £500,000!
Let us share some of the winners from the weekend with you…
Captain ‘Tip 2 Win’ has got off to a great start since we launched British Horse Racing pools and he played a corker into our Place 6 from Cartmel on Saturday! Just 2 other contributors joined him in this Syndicate, with the £16 ticket returning £800! One of those players snapped up 50% of the ticket for £8 and took home a whopping £400!
An interesting tactic here by this Solo player who came agonizingly close to winning £250,000 in the Saturday 7! Their leg 4 selection – Kinks – ended up in 3rd which ultimately let them down but they can’t be disappointed with a £1,010 return from a £6 ticket! A powerful reminder of the benefits of Consolation prizes.
The following player made use of partial Cash Out in the Place 6 at Haydock on Saturday night. After navigating the first 4 legs without a blemish, they decided to Cash Out 50% of their bet for £162 – that is 90 * their stake – to ensure a profit. Leg 5 turned out to be a cracker for them as two of their selections placed and after leg 6 came in they were returned with a £461 winning dividend!
Super work from this punter who placed a one line ticket into Sunday’s Win Pick 4 at The Curragh. Leg 1 really improved the prospect of a greater dividend as outsider Havana Grey won, eliminating 756 Units (from 812 total) out of the pool. Their £1 ticket returned a total of £589 – bravo!
On Friday, Syndicate Captain ‘King of the Pla’ placed a £240 Syndicate ticket into a Win Pick 6 at Newbury, which 8 other contributors joined. Those contributors may have been surprised when the Captain chose to ignore a Cash Out offer of over £10,000 going into the last race – but they will have been jubilant when Majboor ran well to bring home a total of £15,464 for the Syndicate. It’s fair to say you might be wise to keep one eye on this Captain in the future…
