IF you thought Greg Browning was Britain’s deadliest punter think again – it’s actually a Leicester fan who has haunted Ladbrokes with two bumper wins.
It was a good weekend for most punters but the Foxes fans saw his team win again as he took Ladbrokes for £44k thank to a £10 twelvefold.
The bookies believe the man has become the most prolific football accumulator winner in recent times after a bumper Boxing Day payout of £15,886 (from £10 on 12 sides) and small wins worth £5000 and £1700.
It was the winner’s hometown club who sealed the windfall with a win at West Ham on a day they featured on just 3 per cent of coupons nationwide.
The 32-year-old groundworker from Leicester has his eyes on a six-figure sum by the end of the month and said: “The money’s in the bank and my luck is in so why not aim for the jackpot. One hundred grand before the end of the month would be nice but my target is the million and I’ll be sticking with my system.”
He’s spending some of the winnings on a new Ford Focus ST but didn’t want to share the secret to his success in full only saying: “I’ll always go for the teams I think ought to win and I’ve stuck with but I then throw some funny results in as there are upsets in football each week and most punters never pick them out.”
Ladbrokes spokesman Alex Donohue said: “Most football fans are doing well to land a five-figure accumulator once in a lifetime so to bash the bookies with two in eight months is unheard of.
“We don’t think we’ve known anyone go on such a hot streak in as short a space of time and all we can do is bow down while counting out the cash.”
