Betfred punter turns £1 into £50,000

Big Betfred Winner

Factory worker Angela Edwards’ love for her five brothers has paid off at Betfred.

She used the birthdays of Bryn, Wayne, Stuart, Jason and Lee on her 49s numbers game coupon and won £50,000 from just a £1 stake when the numbers 9, 11, 16, 25 and 29 were all drawn.

She said: “For five years I’ve been using their birthdays. I’ve always loved my brothers… and now I love them even more!

“When I told them I’d won using their birthdays, they were all so happy for me and said I now had enough to pay for a deposit on a new home rather than pay rent. I’ve already been looking for a nice two-bedroom terraced, or a bungalow.

“I’ve never been abroad as I don’t fancy flying, so I’m also planning to go on a nice holiday to Cornwall or Bournemouth. A nice, posh hotel would be great, especially as I’ve not been on holiday for ten years – and that was when I went to Blackpool.

“I don’t drive, so there’s no point getting a car, and I don’t drink so there’s no big celebration planned. You could say I’m a home bird!

“The shock of winning so much from such a small stake has only just started to sink in.”

The big win is an early birthday present for Angela, who works as an inspector at a factory that makes parts for cars, as she turns 58 next week.

Betfred boss Fred Done said: “Angela visits our shop in Ebbw Vale near her home in Blaenau every other day and is a very worthy winner.

“She’s putting her windfall to good use after a fully-deserved holiday. I’d like to join the five brothers whose birthdays she used in congratulating her.”
