MANCHESTER, England, February 21, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --
With Great Grandmother Geraldine Hughes missing out on the huge £702,010 bonus at Haydock Park last Saturday the combined funds in the totescoop6 will soar over a million pounds this weekend.
The bonus has not been won since the 31st August last year and currently stands at a massive £740,861.
Betfred boss Fred Done said, "With this huge bonus to chase the combined funds should easily smash through the million pounds barrier, The nation's favourite Saturday bet is definitely a life changer."
Solving this weekend's Scoop6 means finding the winners of two races each from Lingfield, Kempton and Newcastle with the marathon of the Betfred Eider Chase amongst them.
Although Geraldine, who only staked £2, missed out on last week's bonus she was over the moon at picking up an extra £100,000 simply by placing her bet in a Betfred shop.
Betfred boss Fred Done has decided to offer the same incentive this weekend. The £100,000 bonus would be added to any Scoop 6 winner who places their winning bet in a Betfred shop or on line at Betfred.com. (This would be shared if there was more than one winner Betfred winner).
Fred, who created Britain's first betting shop millionaire when Stuart Boland from Cadishead, Greater Manchester, won the Scoop6 in October 2004, added,
'It would have been great if Geraldine had won because she was a terrific advert for the Scoop6 but she was delighted nevertheless after being presented with her cheque for £154,782 at Haydock. Let's hope I'm writing another big cheque to a Scoop6 winner very soon and who knows it may just be you."
