The odd pound or two on the national lottery is all very well, but there are some people out there who are very serious about their betting. There are those who have bet amounts of money which most of us cannot even visualise. There are also those who have placed a small amount and won big. It is the luck of the draw. Here are some of the more interesting stories of bets gone wrong or luck found.
You should always know when it is time to stop. Kerry Packer a well known Australian gambler known for his ‘toss you for it’ bet with a Texan oil millionaire worth one hundred million dollars, is reputed to have lost over forty million dollars (the equivalent of twenty five million pounds) in London over a period of ten months. It just goes to show you how easy it is to lose an awful lot of money and why it is important to have those limits in place! The biggest known losing streak that took place in Vegas happened in 2007 and involved a businessman named Terrance Watanabe who over the course of a year in Vegas lost $127 million. This was his complete personal fortune.
Owning a horse as a syndicate can be a good move for professional gamblers as the Hermits of Salisbury plain discovered. A group of five, they made several wins on the horses, but notably in 1903 had a windfall of £250,000 (worth £10 million today) when their horse Hacklers Pride won the Cambridgeshire race. It is always worth taking the occasional punt, as those that spend a couple of pounds on the Euromillions and then win life changing amounts of money will tell you. A 40 year-old Welshman discovered this when he decided to place a bet back in 1989. What did he bet on? Well, that Cliff Richard would be knighted, that Eastenders and Neighbours would still be showing on TV in the year 2000 and U2 would still be a group. He placed a bet of £30 and collected £194,400 in 2000.
The Ultimate Loss:
There are those that have gambled and who have made the biggest losses of all in the process. People will know that Captain Matthew Webb was the first man to swim the English Channel in 1875. What many people may not know is that in a bid to make some much needed cash he agreed to swim across the whirlpool underneath the Niagara Falls to the other side. The stake for doing this was $10,000. Unfortunately this was a bet which cost him his life.
It is always worth bearing in mind that whilst having a punt can be extraordinary fun and can lead to life-changing events – it also has a darker side. You do not always have to be a high roller to reap those rewards, so enjoy the little ones too.
