Tote players win big on Durban July
Published: 06 July 2016
Nearly R150 million was wagered on the tote on Vodacom Durban July day last Saturday and several TAB and tabGOLD customers won huge amounts for relatively small outlays.
The TAB Quartet pool on the big race, boosted by a R1.2-million carryover, soared to more than R17 million and several Quartet players had six-figure wins for small amounts.
A TAB customer in Embalenhle in Mpumalanga and a tabGOLD client selected the first four past the post in the Durban July and played them in a R24 Quartet Box. Each collected the full payout of R152,149 - over 6,000 times their outlay.
Another tabGOLD customer in Chatsworth bet a R20 Quartet on the Durban July and took home R126,790, while a player in Howick in KwaZulu-Natal bet a R100 Quartet and collected R633,954.
The biggest winner on the meeting was a TAB telephone betting customer in the Western Cape, who bet a R3,120 Pick 6 permutation and won nearly R1.5 million.
A Stanger-based player was another big winner, playing a R500 Pick 6 permutation and collecting R902,615!
A TAB customer bet a R220 Pick 6 at Gold Reef City and collected R176,510 and a Mabopane player won R103,155 on the Pick 6 with a R150 bet.
A Western Cape-based digital customer was the sharpest Pick 6 player on the day with a R120 permutation delivering a payout of R541,569.
The Pick 6 pool started with a R4-million carryover and the total pool was more than 14 million.
