BETFRED paid out £2,686.04 to a punter who bet just three pence on TEN draws.
George Wagonback, 85, spread his bets across the Football League, Scottish Premiership and a World Cup qualifier.
Betfred cannot recall a punter scooping up so much cash from such a small stake.
George, who is a grandfather of three, said: “I always go for draws because that’s how matches begin. It’s what you start with – and in Scotland there always seems to be more draws.
“I’ve had some significant wins on the football over the years, much bigger than this one.
“But then again, I usually bet more than 3p which is basically loose change that I had in my pocket.
“I took about two hours studying the fixtures and left it late to get to the shop to get my bet on because the Lebanon game kicked off at noon. I was confident the Scottish games would all be draws, as they often are up there.
“I didn’t know I’d won, until I checked the paper the next day. I did feel good, but can’t jump around much these days – only little jumps!
“I have always been a winner because I set my mind to achieve things. My ambition is to skin Betfred for a million!”

After discovering George’s sensational winnings, Betfred arranged to gift him a bottle of champagne.
Betfred boss Fred Done said: “George, a Betfred regular for years has my heartfelt congratulations.
“I’ve been in this business for more than 50 years, and cannot remember anyone winning so much from just three pence.
“It is a truly remarkable win, with him beating odds of virtually 90,000/1.”
