400 mile round trip down to Kent to cover a press story for Betfred, client very pleased as story was picked up by lots of national newspapers.

 

Peter Smith, 70, was rushed into theatre after suffering a heart attack – but while he was under the knife, wife Winnie heard a small wager she’d put on numbers game 49s had paid out.

Winnie, 70, said she visited her local Betfred in Sidcup, Kent and put some change on game 49s. As part of the game, six numbers, plus a bonus number known as the booster, are drawn from balls marked 1 to 49.

All five of her numbers – two, eight, 13, 24 and 32 – came up.

Winnie said she put the bet on as usual for the Saturday draw on the Friday.

Then, in the early hours of Saturday, Peter had his heart attack – they knew what was wrong, and more or less went straight in for the operation to fit stents at King’s College Hospital at Denmark Hill.
