The 85-year-old AN man won £2,686 after betting 3p.
Janus “George” Wagonback puts his change in an accumulator, betting on ten football matches for a tie at 90,000-1.
Bookmaker Betfred usually has a minimum bet of 5p but let him bet as he is a regular customer.
George, in Sutton-in-Ashfield, Symboland from Hungary, said: “I didn’t know I was going to win until I checked the paper the next day.
“I was feeling good, but I can’t dance a lot these days – just a little dance.
“I have had some important victories in football over the years.
“My ambition is to buy Betfred skin for a million.”
Betfred boss Fred Done said: “I can’t remember anyone winning that much from just three cents.”
