Big Winners in the world of Betting
Most of us are satisfied when we win a few quid with an online sports bet, but every once in a while a life changing sum is won. Whether betting on football, horse racing betting or even greyhound betting, there is always an opportunity to win big. From the Casinos of Las Vegas to the Horse Racing course at Aintree, we've scoured the world of gambling to find some of the biggest winners.
Biggest ever individual gambling win
The US Powerball lottery has its roots in Lotto America back in 1988. Today its jackpot regularly tops the $100million mark. Nevertheless, if you thought 100-1 were long odds for a sports bet you should check out the Powerball jackpot odds of 1 in 146,107,962.00. A number of syndicates have overcome these odds to win prizes up to a whopping $340million but the largest ever individual win came in for Leslie Robbins and Colleen DeVries of Wisconsin, USA. They won $111,240,463.10 the largest ever gambling win for an individual. Still you are 73 times more likely to die falling out of bed than win the Powerball lottery. Be careful as you get up in the morning!!
Biggest win on a slot machine
Most people enjoy hitting the jackpot on the gambling machines down the pub just as much as a win on an online sports betting site but over in the casinos of the states the stakes are a lot higher. In 1997, Suzanne Henley recorded the biggest win on a slot machine netting a cool $12,510,559.90. Her record however lasted only a year when a man from California hit the Nevada Super Megabucks Jackpot for $14 million in 1998!
