THE Herald horse racing tipster Punter's Pal had punters smiling all the way to the bank with his selections on Friday.
The changed rules of the Pick 6 bet have taken punters by storm. Betting pools at Port Elizabeth racemeetings are now even bigger and attract the attention of punters countrywide. Since Monday last week, stable couplings in the Pick 6 are no longer applicable.
This means punters really have to dig deep to find the winners and that payouts are like winning the lotto.
Followers of The Herald's Punter's Pal column need not have feared.
It may have been Friday the 13th in Port Elizabeth last week, but there were no horror stories at Arlington – where the new rule applied for the first time – if Punter's Pal's tips were followed.
His suggested perm of R1440 returned a massive dividend of R398057. And for only R144 (10%) a punter would have pocketed almost R40000!
Don't miss Punter's Pal's tips for the next meeting at Arlington on Friday.
