Chester Train Shop Punter Choo Choo Chooses 15 Winners And Bags Over £20k

A man in his mid forties has scooped a massive payout after he breezed into the William Hill shop at Chester train station and placed a £3, 15 team football accumulator. The man, who spoke with a Southern accent, told the girl working behind the counter that he was off on holiday on Easter Sunday with some of his winnings leaving it unknown as to whether he lived in Chester or just visiting the city for the day.

From his £3 stake, the lucky punter bagged himself £20,343.96, beating odds of over 6780/1 to land his massive payout.

“It is hard enough to pick one winner so for him to get 15 is absolutely incredible,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly. “When he collected his winnings on Saturday evening, he told the assistant that he had decided that he was going to go on holiday for a week and mull over what else he was going to spend his winnings on.”

The games that were played over Good Friday and the following Saturday included Celtic who won the SPL title by defeating Kilmarnock 6-0, Chelsea who defeated Wigan with two contentious goals and virtually the last kick of the game and Reading, who moved top of the Championship by beating 10 man Leeds with two goals in the last six minutes of the match.

The shop in the train station has been open for two years and is the first betting shop in Chester that punters get to when they arrive for the yearly race meetings that start in May.
