Man who penned book on beating the bookies jailed for bets scam

A TRICKSTER who wrote a book on beating the bookies has been jailed for a bets scam.

Jason Haddigan, 47, duped shop staff by switching slips once a horse race was over.

He drove 200-plus miles to Ammanford, Carmarthenshire, to pull off the trick in May 2019.

Haddigan won £1,613 and drove 37 miles to Narberth to use the trick to win another £1,780, Swansea crown court heard.

The gambling addict, who was identified from CCTV, admitted fraud and got 21 weeks’ jail.

Haddigan, of Chichester, West Sussex, wrote How And Why I Conned The Bookies after being convicted of fraud in 2014.
