Congratulations to everyone who took a shot at Xpressbet’s life-changing $50K Big Bet. Fifty lucky customers were rewarded with an extra $100 in their accounts, and one Grand Prize Winner, Timothy Lanning of Palm Coast, Florida, will place a $50,000 WIN Bet on a horse of his choosing in this year’s Preakness Stakes.

An avid racing fan that used to live right down the street from Belmont Park, Timothy moved to Florida and hasn’t been to the track in 7 years. As he put it, his trip to Pimlico for this year’s Preakness will definitely cure a ‘seven-year itch,’ as he is very eager to experience a day at the races once again. We wish him all of the best and we hope he picks the winner in the 139th Running of the Preakness Stakes!
