Ho Kwan (Peter) Ng has a little extra money for a lavish family vacation, after winning a total of $105,000 betting on soccer on PlayNow.com, B.C.’s local sportsbook.
“I was excited, very excited and very happy,” says Ng, who first told his wife about the big win. “She thought I was lying at first but then she congratulated me.”
Ng placed three different bets – among them a nine-way parlay on an assortment of soccer and Major League Baseball (MLB) games, with that particular wager winning more than $82,000. His other two bets won a combined $23,000 for a grand total of $105,000, betting on Major League Soccer (MLS), Copa America women’s soccer, the Brazilian Cup and the Mexico Liga de Expansion.
Ng says he prefers making his sports bets on PlayNow.com, where he can place his bets and buy his lottery tickets all on his phone.
