One university graduate in Norwich stands to win more than £180,000, depending on whether Jeremy Corbyn and Labour are successful in this election.
He bet a further £3,000 on Labour to win the most seats at 20/1.
And £1,000 - at 40/1 odds - on Labour to achieve the majority of seats in parliament next month.
Should all three of his bets come off, he will see a £182,000 return for his money.
But what are the bookies offering for the Norfolk and Waveney candidates - with North Norfolk and Norwich South among the seats to watch.
In North Norfolk, Paddy Power has Conservative James Wild at 8/15, Liberal Democrat Norman Lamb at 11/8 and Labour’s Stephen Burke at 50/1.
In Norwich South, Labour’s Clive Lewis is at 1/5, with odds of 3/1 for Conservative Lana Hempsall, 14/1 for Liberal Democrat James Wright and 33/1 for Green Richard Bearman.
The bookies believe Tory Chloe Smith will hold Norwich North. She’s 1/50, with Chris Jones (Labour) 16/1, Lib Dem Hugh Lanham 100/1 and Green Adrian Holmes and Pirate Party candidate Liam Matthews 250/1.
Conservatives Keith Simpson, Elizabeth Truss, Richard Bacon, Henry Bellingham and George Freeman are at 1/200 to win in Broadland, South West Norfolk, South Norfolk, Mid Norfolk and North West Norfolk. Party colleague Brandon Lewis is 1/100 in Great Yarmouth, while in Waveney, Tory Peter Aldous is 1/18, with Labour’s Sonia Barker 15/2.
