When he had money he gave some to Bliss,a charity for premature babies.As my twin girls were in incubators about that time(35 years ago) I was always grateful for his donations.

He always struck me as a generous guy and second again`s post confirms that.

Must be worse ending up skint after having millions.

It was rumoured that he used to bet in hundreds of thousands with the red firm.

Do you think he would pass an affordability check if he were betting now Crazy

Good luck to the guy.

people it seems like to see people like terry ramsden and nick leeson as cult heroes but they lost everything yes having a great time doing it but lost it all ladbrokes did not give him a direct line for nothing lol.me a like to see people in this game who started out with nothing got the money
BUT still have the money they are the people i want to learn from it will be very good value the podcast but terry ramsden only answered the questions he wanted to answer that it seems was the condition giving the interview.it seems that wingerwanger don't like some of the replies my answer to that don't put the thread up for people to watch simple really

An odd interview.

The interviewer asks crass and inane questions, which Ramsden ignores to tell his own story.

There’s a YouTube video akin to the Findlay one done in 97/98.

Ffs he’s betting place and show in America and giving it large to the camera that he bet ‘the winner ‘


IQ 195 ??  Maybe. Cos anyone I’ve met with intelligence that high is a ****g deluded sociopath.

And our Tel certainly is one.

Not at all worried about the replies that aren't complimentary I forgot how much fun it was on here. makes twitter look like a playground. I'm not sure why my title is wingerwanger on here either ha ha I must have been boozing at the time. I'm not sure about the 'Inane' and 'Crass' questions either,I hardly ask any, it's not meant to be Paxman but entertaining. Anyway, thanks for all the comments good or bad.

Couldn't agree more, 30 years ago people would regard the likes of Findlay and Ramsden as heroes, but these days many are too busy drowning in their spreadsheets and trading tools and just can't relate to this type of gambler.

@themightymac -- the interview talks about £200k+ bets with Ladbrokes. As for affordability checks, Ramsden was easily worth £150 million which he'd made in the City trading Japanese warrants.

Sorry for offending @wingerwanger by dissing his questions.

Part two is online now btw.

When: 22 Jul 21 17:48
I must say I enjoyed both pieces, Terry a little long winded but still of huge interest , can't wait to hear the real story re him v Stein . Some magical moments and you could still see what it meant to him as he spoke about the secret gallop. Mick Ryan must have been some drinking partner...

many dont like  harry findlay or terry ramsden ,to me they are top blokes coming from humble backgrounds and most would love to have their lives in their heyday  ,to these stuck up arsholes   they are the "cockney jack the lad" types they think have no   right to be succesfull  and have money , it rankles with them ! how can these lower class  wide boys who went to comprehensive schools and had working class backgrounds be succesfull ? its a fookin liberty these types should be in the gutter where they belong !  best of luck tel and harry.

Foyleswar, I always liked Harry and his sense of humour , didn't hear Terry that often so not up to speed on him, but i fully agree with you. I also love to see the working class doing well especially in this game..
