“I love coming to Cheltenham and we always do a Placepot when we arrive. It’s a great bet that we can follow through the day. I’d won it a couple of times before and it paid a couple of hundred pounds. I didn’t know how much I had won last year, but didn’t expect £182,000 from a £2 bet, I’m not sure who was more shocked when I presented the ticket last year - me or the member of staff!”
