Mayweather’s million-dollar bet

Floyd Mayweather

Floyd “Money” Mayweather also known as the king of gamblers is no doubt one of the highest-earning athletes. He, however, is no stranger to betting and can place the huge bets on everything from basketball to football.

One particular bet that made history is his £5.9 million bet. This bet made headlines, as it earned him a cool $6.49 million.

The bet he made was on Miami Heat beating Indiana Pacers. Let’s just say that the bet paid off in a big way.

The Magnificent Seven Prediction by Yates

Another big betting win is the magnificent seven prediction. This win happened in 1998. During this period, the Ascot racecourse was quite popular, particularly a jockey known as Franki Dettori. Despite being popular, Dettori was one of the people who didn’t believe his chances.

Of the races he was set to participate in, Franki believed that he could possibly win at least two. However, some punters like Darren Yates disagreed. This led Yates to place a bet of £67.58. He then combined all the seven races into one bet. But, as fate would have it, Dettori won all the races. This was indeed a lucky feat for those who bet on Dettori.

Although there were plenty of winners, Yates walked away with a huge amount of £550,823.

Fred Craggs 50p

Fred Craggs

In 2008, one gambler made a bet on his 60th birthday using the least amount possible 50p. This gambler was Yorkshireman Fred Craggs. Little did he know that his 50p bet would turn into a £1 million win.

Fred Craggs placed a bet on a horse race. From the race, he selected an eight-horse accumulator. The common theme being that the horses had extremely long odds. He stuck with the bet, despite being offered two million in odds. But it paid off.

Billy Walters Bet

Before trying his hand at sports betting, Walters was a poker player. The years he has worked as a professional poker player, he has earned more money compared to other betters in the industry. the approximate amount of his well-known winning amount was not recorded; but it was a huge amount.

The winning bet he placed was on an underdog team known as Saints during the 2010 Super Bowl. Since this team had never won any Super Bowl game before, its win certainly gave Billy Walters a huge amount.

Mick Gibbs

Mick Gibbs

With this knowledge, he was able to net £157,000 by placing a £2.50 bet on the outcome of a nine-football game. He also predicted the outcome of 15 games and this earned him £500,000.
