MANCHESTER, April 27, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --
The totescoop6 rolled over for the ninth successive Saturday after Angel Gabrial flew home to win the penultimate leg at Ripon.
The combined pools stood at £3,874,083 when the first leg went off making this weekend's bet the most valuable in Scoop6 history.
The final 16 tickets were eliminated by Angel Gabrial, who triggered a rollover of £2,096,863 in the win pot and £1,777,220 in the bonus.
Early estimates are next weekend's Scoop6 pools will hit £5m for the first time since the bet was launched on the 24th July 1999.
totepool spokesman Andrew Griffiths said: "The Scoop6 continues to get bigger and bigger, with punters pumping more than £1.6m into today's pools.
"It looked odds-on to be won considering the huge investment, but Dispour dealt punters an early blow and they never bounced back.
"History will be made next weekend when the Scoop6 pools are expected to hit £5m."
A whopping £1,624,614 was bet into this afternoon's pools and there were 440 winners of the place fund which returned £738.40.
