A Grandad from Durham was the lucky player, scooping up a whopping £10,000 prize from a £1 bet after matching four numbers when placing his bet in July.
And as if a £10,000 prize wasn’t a great enough result, the 53-year-old prison officer also won £800 the day before – with a bet on the very same game!
Obviously with two great Nifty Fifty results in two days, this lucky Grandad has got his number picking down to a tee. But you certainly wouldn’t say this was an overnight success – nor could you blame him for sticking to his guns.
And you’ll never guess how he picked his lucky numbers...
The 53-year-old picked his lucky numbers based on the birthdays... of his four cocker spaniels! His winning numbers – 4, 9, 22 and 30 – represent the days of the month his beloved pooches were born.
“I know it sounds stupid, but I picked those numbers 10 years ago and have used them on the Irish Lotto and other lotteries – and now thankfully on The Nifty Fifty. I won £800 on The Nifty Fifty the day before – and now I’ve landed £10,000 – which is absolutely brilliant,” revealed the big winner.
And Betfred owner, Fred Done, couldn’t believe it when he heard, “I bet this fella is cock-a-hoop! It is astonishing how people pick their numbers, often based on family birthdays but not necessarily those of much-loved spaniels!”
Fred’s not wrong. Many people play with the same lucky numbers for long periods – just like this lucky winner. But, normally, these numbers are based on the birthdays of people, anniversaries or even good old intuition rather than petst!
Nifty Fifty Proving Popular
The Nifty Fifty – currently available exclusively at Betfred – was only launched in May 2020, so it’s extremely impressive how much of an impact that this numbers betting game has had – both in terms of the amount of people betting on it and the fact that Betfred have already had to pay out such a big prize.
The catchily-named game involves 50 numbers (bet you would have never guessed that) of which six main plus a bonus ball are drawn each time. Players can choose how many numbers they want to bet on, starting with just one ball (for odds of 7/1) up to 5 balls (for massive odds of 200,000/1) at the time of writing*. Our lucky Grandad chose to bet on four balls, with a £1 stake, hence why he walked away with a whopping £10,000 prize!
But one of the most popular features of The Nifty Fifty is the frequency of the draws. Indeed, not only is this new numbers betting game taking place daily, but it actually takes no less than three times per day – at 11:30, 14:30 and 18:30 - with all draws streamed live and The Nifty Fifty results displayed at Betfred.com. (Coming soon to ComparetheLotto.com).
