One Sky Bet punter copped over £15,000 from a Lucky 15 at Newcastle races while 13 was anything but unlucky as another unearthed a 3832/1 football accumulator comprising of 13 teams.

15,000 reasons to smile

Joe from Dartford has surely enjoyed a weekend of celebration after a £4 Lucky 15 returned £15,204.80 on Friday night.

Thirlmere (9/2), Island Of Life (2/1), Amherst Rock (12/1) and Little Choosey (15/2) did the business, the margins of their respective victories diminishing to a head in the final leg of a spectacular wager.

Battle lines drawn

Stephen from Stalybridge must surely be a military history buff and it has finally paid off after a stunning treble bagged him over £4,000 on Saturday.

With selections named Battle Of Waterloo (14/1), Yorkist (14/1) and War Sound (13/2), Stephen's selections came with a theme and for a mere £2.50 each-way treble, he can now call himself a winner on the punting battleground.

Cash out queen

Lastly in racing, Clare from Market Drayton has a keen sense of timing judging by her own £4,000 coup as she honed in on the live ITV Racing schedule at the weekend.

Clare bagged six winners in a seven-fold accumulator, the last of them Royal Sound in the November Handicap, before sagely deciding to cut and run by cashing out ahead of the final leg.

It was a brave call - victory for final selection Belmount would've netted her over £80,000 - but ultimately the right one as joint-favourite Present Man won the Badger Ales and Belmount was pulled up when beaten.

Drawing profits

Results were perhaps a little better for the bookies over the weekend, Arsenal, Chelsea and Leicester among the better-fancied sides failing to win, but there were nevertheless a collection of spectacular winning bets on the football coupon.

One Sky Bet customer turned 50p into over £4,000 with a nine-fold which included three draws, while there was a return of more than £7,500 for a 13-fold which started in London and then took in France, Belgium, the Netherlands, Spain, Italy and Portugal.

At the end of the continental expedition, 13 winners meant turning £2 into a serious wedge which might perhaps pay for an inter-railing adventure in the months to come.

Another customer bagged £3,648 from an eight-fold which included four draws, while there was a return of £4,510 for a punter who had a £10 four-fold which required four teams to win with three or more goals in each game.

Close to golfing glory

Golf expert Ben Coley hit the crossbar on both major golf tours over the weekend, with headline tip Sergio Garcia finishing second in the Nedbank Golf Challenge and 100/1 shot Danny Lee filling the same spot in the Mayakoba Golf Classic.

In racing, Simon Holt was toasting Bryony Frost's exceptional ride aboard Present Man in the Badger Ales.
