Entire £285,296.90 Scoop6 Dividend Won By Single Punter

Scoop6 £285,296 26th september 2020

There were 100,762 tickets in the Scoop 6 on 26th September 2020.

It had been 6 weeks since the last win, and the Win pot had grown to £285,296.90, which is nowhere close to all time highs, but with much live sport derailed due to COVID, racing fans were obviously keen to have a punt on the Scoop6 and enjoy the racing.

It was a great start for the pool too, as the favourite, a horse called Danyah, won the first race at Haydock Park, which had been backed by 33,717 units in the pool.

This meant that 33.46% of all tickets made it over the first hurdle and into race 2 – a much larger percentage then usual.

It was Alcohol Free at 7/2 who won that race though, the Juddmonte Cheveley Park Chase at Newmarket, yet despite being the second shortest priced runner on the card, only 3,822 Scoop6 punters had back the horse.

This reduced the remaining units by around 89%, but luckily, it was another favourite that come out ahead in race 3. Came From The Dark did the business for the 1,382 remaining punters that had backed him.

Only 8 ran in race 4, but it was a race that was difficult to call. When the fourth most backed horse, Supremacy, won the race at 13/2, it knocked out all but 145 units in the competition. That means just 10.49% of the 1,382 tickets remained.

Two races to go and just 145 tickets still standing meant this Scoop6 could be a bust, but the punters got lucky once again when yet another favourite did their job. High Definition won 3:15 at Curragh, sending 55 happy punters through to the final race of the day.

Despite a relatively large number of tickets somehow scraping through to race 6, this was the most difficult race of the day since the field was 27 strong.

Ten of the runners weren’t even backed in the pool, so it was still possible for the Scoop6 to roll over again.

When Majestic Dawn won the race at long odds of 40/1, you would be forgiven for thinking that it would be another week with the pot not being won, but a single punter had put their faith in Majestic Dawn.

That single punter remains anonymous, but they won a single dividend of £285,296.90, as well as the opportunity to bag the bonus fund a week later.

That was only worth £82,909, which is a lot of money sure, but it’s a drop in the ocean compared the how big the bonus fund can grow. Anyway, the lucky punter only went and won it, making a total win of £368,205.90.
