Last week’s mammoth Scoop6 was won by eight tickets. Some of these were held by large players but at least on was a punter that brought a single £2 line. They must be happy after getting a return of £437,011 from his £2.
Those eight ticket holders will now try to pick the winner of a bonus race next Saturday (29th November) for a chance to add another £1.5 million on to their winnings. The most likely pick for the bonus race will be Saturday’s Hennessy Cognac Gold Cup for which a total of 21 horse have been entered.
Tote spokesman Damian Walker said: “The Hennessy Cognac Gold Cup has attracted a decent entry at the five-day stage and we’ll be hoping that plenty of the 21 hold their ground at the final declaration stage. We know there is sure to be collusion between those holding the eight winning tickets [to place their tickets on different runners to increase the chances of getting a share of the £1.5 million], but this does not guarantee success and the race has produced some shocks over the years. Obviously if the bonus isn’t won this weekend then any of this Saturday’s winning scoop6 tickets will get a fresh shot at the huge bonus pool.”
In there lies the most important bit of Scoop6 news for this week. If last week’s 8 Scoop6 winners fail to pick the winner of the Hennessy then this week’s Scoop6 winner(s) will get a chance to go for an even larger bonus fund the week after. You have to be in this weeks Scoop6 to have a chance so join Totesport now
