It’s not always those who place huge stakes on horse races that win. 32 kroner can go a long way, it seems.

According to nettavisen.no, a man from Tønsberg won over a million kroner on a trotting horse race last Saturday using just the digits of his phone number.

“I haven’t got a clue about horse races,” he told rikstoto.no.

His system isn’t entirely random, though.

“I consistently use a couple of my phone numbers as a basis,” said the winner, who celebrated afterwards with champagne.
