Gambling is popular worldwide, and even Malaysian gamblers who are typically restricted by strict gambling laws typically frequent a casino online mobile Malaysia outside common gaming houses. Many of these gamblers want to try their luck playing casino games or betting through sportsbooks in Malaysia. Their choices can range from getting lucky in slots to betting in horse races.
Horse racing falls under the category of sports betting, and there have already been several people who’ve gotten rich off of sports betting. Some people, in particular, won big out of horse racing even when they stake low, mainly thanks to pari-mutuel jackpots and parlays.
One bettor who won big as a 61-year-old heating engineer named Steve Whiteley, got lucky off of a free horse ticket and a £2 bet. He randomly chose six Exeter Tote horses and even picked a bad horse that lost 28 of its previous races. Most bettors won’t pick this horse since it will obviously lose based on its history alone, but Whiteley picked it randomly and managed to get lucky and win £1.45 million. Sometimes, betting without any strategy in mind is effective.
Another bettor who won through horse racing is a 60-year-old fertilizer salesman named Fred Craggs, who placed a 50p bet on an eight-leg parlay and won £1 million. He didn’t expect to win his bet and only found out about it after returning to his local bookmaker to continue betting. His parlay included different horse races worldwide.
One more bettor is an anonymous bettor from Leicestershire who won £823,000 from a five-leg horse parlay where he wagered only £19.
These are just some of the biggest sports betting wins in history, and there are bound to be more. Malaysian bettors who want to try replicating this can look for a reputable sportsbook and start betting on Malaysia horse racing live today.
