$2 Million Shared By Triple Trio Winners So Far
Another big weekend for Triple Trio punters saw the pay outs pass the $2million mark when the TAB’s $1 Million Dollar
Triple Trio [1
] was struck following the completion of the third race on Saturday at Ellerslie as part of Auckland Cup Week.
“What a way to kick off Auckland Cup Week,” Executive General Manager TAB, Glenn Patrick said. “We made a lot of
customers very happy after Race 10. We only launched Triple Trio a few weeks ago and people have had some big wins with
more than $2million paid out so far.”
“In what you could say was ‘the luck of the Irish’, the biggest winner to date took home $306,059.90 from a $25 cash bet
that was placed at the TAB outlet at the Faltering Fullback Irish bar in Auckland. The second biggest win was a TAB
account customer from Christchurch who pocketed $147,294.90 from a $64 bet. We also had a plenty of winners with smaller
shares, including an $8 bet that won $73,421.40! All up, the whole million dollar Triple Trio pool was paid out.
“You don’t have to be a racing guru to have a go on Triple Trio, or to make any bet. Our biggest winner on Saturday had
some help from the TAB staff at the bar on how to place his bet and how to collect his winnings. Making that Triple Trio
easier still was the fact that a number of the pre-race favourites delivered on the track.
“The TAB is offering another Triple Trio with a guaranteed $500,000 pool all of which could be potentially won on
Diamond Day being held at Auckland’s Ellerslie Race Course this Saturday 8 March. A TAB Easybet is a simple way to have
a crack. For example, a $30 % Easybet gives you five horses in two races and four horses in the other. People can find
out which races are part of Triple Trio and the odds on horses on our websites www.tripletrio.co.nz
“With plenty more action to come on the greyhound, harness and thoroughbred tracks during the remainder of Auckland Cup
Week, you should have a go,” Mr Patrick said.
 About Triple Trio: First division winners need to have the first three horses (in any order) in the nominated three
consecutive races – usually the last three of the day. www.tripletrio.co.nz
