Not normally a gambling man - maybe the Grand National and the Derby but realised I had an online account with Corals from the last national with £1.75 in it. Decided to have a flutter on the Ebor at York as I saw a horse I liked in the preview. Picked a couple of others and tried to do a multiple - maximum gain for minimum stake. Messed up completely - thought i`d bet £2.50 and then realised it was £2.50 per bet of 7 that made up the multiple. Thought what the hell for once and..... 3 winners at 8-1, 11-2 and 11-4. £997.50 Whoo hoo!  :beer: :dance: :2funny:. Of course it`s proving more difficult to get the funds paid back to my account but a few conversations on Coral chatline sorted it and will get it in next 2 days. Well chuffed. Note to self - this odes not happen often - do not get the gambling bug!

That's brilliant Jinky. Great result and a nice treat.
Now you've got to decide what to treat yourself too!
May the Force be with you.

Well done Jinky. Money always goes to them that don't need it!  :legit:

Don't tell anyone. Keep it to yourself and then it's OK to treat yourself.  :tup:
May the Force be with you.

Jammy git Jinky. I won a a chicken at the village fete raffle when I was 9. That was the last thing I won. I don't gamble at all. A few years ago a social club I was in had a raffle where 9 out of 10 tickets were winners. I lost.

You would have won if you had lost the ticket!  :doh:

I found my 10 stop filter that Iost a few weeks ago!  :) :)
It was in my bedside table. I knew it would be somewhere obvious. But I'd searched it 3 times already. Wonder if it's the wife's idea of a joke.
Anyway, I'm happy I found it.  :)
May the Force be with you.
