Craig Brazier became one of Britain’s biggest individual betting shop winners when pocketing a staggering £1,342,599 on the Scoop6 from just a £2 line on Saturday.
Craig, a wheelie bin cleaner, is one of eight winners to share the £10,740,796 win fund after Chatez scored in the final leg at Haydock for trainer Alan King.
As tradition dictates the 39-year-old has vowed to carry on cleaning bins despite being in the hunt for a further £5,481,763 by picking the winner of this weekend’s bonus race.
The race in question will be announced at 11:30am on Friday.
The father-of-two placed his bet following a visit to his local fishing shop. Left with £2 in his pocket, Brazier popped into the nearby Betfred shop to play the Scoop6 for only the third time and amazingly picked all six winners.
He said: “I’d spent most of my money on fishing gear, but I had £2 in my pocket so I nipped into the shop as I knew there was a huge rollover.
“It was only the third time I’d played the Scoop6 and I had four winners the week before.
“I went home to watch the racing and started panicking after I got three out of three. I couldn’t see the telly for the last leg because I was running up and down the room riding Chatez home.
“I went absolutely berserk when he won and I was still up at 4am wondering if it had really happened.
“On Sunday I went fishing to let it all sink in, but all I caught was some sleep on the bank.
“My biggest previous win was on New Year’s Day in 2008 when Blazing Bailey landed me a Lucky 15. Since that day I’ve always said I’d have a horse with Alan King if I had enough money…now I might have two!”
