Despite returning a record Bonus Prize fund dividend of £853,000 last Saturday, the possibility of another six figure payout is on the cards again tomorrow as more than £100,000 lines the combined Win and Bonus Prize fund when the pools open in the morning.

A rollover of £72,845 sits in the Win fund, while £31,219-which cannot be won tomorrow-lines the Bonus Prize fund.

"The last couple of months has seen interest in the Scoop6 rocket to record levels, and while there may not be a £1 million rollover this Saturday, we've undoubtedly introduced a few new players to the bet over the last few weeks who will hopefully be playing again tomorrow," said Tote spokesman Jeremy Scott.

"A single winner tomorrow would be able to enjoy a juicy six-figure payout, with the possibility of coming back next week to take their total winnings to around £200,000!"

Saturday's Scoop6 legs are:
leg 1 - 1.55 Newmarket
leg 2 - 2.25 Newmarket
leg 3 - 2.40 Newbury
leg 4 - 3.10 Newbury
leg 5 - 3.30 Ripon
leg 6 - 3.40 Newbury
