Legend has it no single bookie in NSW had the necessary war chest to take the wild bets of sheer volume Packer was constantly itching to place at the racing carnivals.
In the end a gang of bookies banded together to pool their resources in an effort to take on Packer.
While Packer liked to play casino games overseas he was a constant with many major bookmakers, including a huge rivalry with former leading SP bookie Alan Tripp.
He left behind a huge legacy of keen business dealings and having won and lost fortunes on the horses, blackjack and baccarat. Las Vegas.
His mother, Gretel's father, was Herbert Bullmore. Herbert Bullmore was a rugby player from Scotland and a doctor. He had only one brother named Clyde who was older than him.

Kerry Packer. Murdoch quickly dispatched his own team of 'heavies', who threw Kerry and friends out. Not surprisingly, the Murdoch press had a field day with the news that the son of Australia's biggest media tycoon had been caught brawling in the street.
Like Murdoch, Packer's critics saw his ever-expanding cross-media holdings as a potential threat to media diversity and freedom of speech.
He also repeatedly came under fire for his companies' alleged involvement in tax evasion schemes and for the extremely low amounts of company tax that his corporations are reported to have paid over the years.
He fought repeated battles with the Australian Taxation Office over his corporate taxes. His most severe legal challenge came in with the Costigan Commission alleging using the codename of "the squirrel", renamed "the Goanna " in media reports  that he was involved in tax evasion and organised crime, including drug trafficking.
He successfully counter-attacked the commission with the assistance of his counsel Malcolm Turnbull. In , the charges were formally dismissed by Attorney-General Lionel Bowen.
I like cash. I have a squirrel mentality. I like to keep money in cash. It is by no means the most cash I ever had in my life.
Notwithstanding the significant efforts made to preserve his security and privacy, Packer suffered two mysterious break-ins at his companies' headquarters in Park Street, Sydney:.
Packer broke the sports boycott of apartheid South Africa which prevented South African sportsmen from representing their country when he recruited a number of South African cricketers to play on his World Series Cricket Team.
His timing was criticised, coming just months after the Soweto riots and the death of Steve Biko , murdered by the members of the South African security forces.
Packer's primary schooling suffered greatly when he was stricken with a severe bout of poliomyelitis at age eight, and he was confined to an iron lung for nine months.
His father apparently thought little of his son's abilities, once cruelly describing him as "the family idiot", although Kerry subsequently steered PBL to heights far beyond anything his father or brother achieved.
The nickname his father gave Kerry made him strive to new heights in schooling, trying to achieve "A" grades.
His end of year report said he was one of the most notable students. In an interview, former employee Trevor Sykes stated that "He didn't read much on the printed page.
If you didn't want Kerry to read something, you wrote more than a one-page memo. Packer's grandfather Herbert Bullmore represented the Scotland national rugby union team in an international match against Ireland in Dublin in and worked as a doctor in Sydney for many years.
At the time of Packer's death, he and Ros had two grandchildren: Francesca then 10, and Ben, then 7, from Gretel's first marriage to British financier Nick Barham,  and Gretel and her husband Shane Murray were expecting their first child together, William born Packer conducted extra-marital affairs with a number of women including the model Carol Lopes—who reportedly committed suicide after being shunned by Packer—publisher and former ConPress employee Ita Buttrose , and Julie Trethowan, his long-time mistress and manager from of the Packer-owned Sydney city health and fitness club, the Hyde Park Club.
After his death, the Sydney Morning Herald reported that from about , Packer transferred control of multimillion-dollar Sydney real estate holdings to Trethowan.
Packer, a media mogul billionaire, was behind the damaging split from the Australian Cricket Board in the late s in a fight over television broadcasting rights and when peace was achieved his Channel 9 coverage led the way in innovation.
In the s Packer was also influential in preventing players from taking part in rebel tours to South Africa and he signed up young players such as Steve Waugh on lucrative contracts with his company PBL.
Shane Warne was another on his books until he was sacked in for his off-field indiscretions. Packer, who had a kidney transplant in , had a history of serious illnesses and suffered severe health problems over the past couple of years.
While in office, Hawke signed off a testimonial video for his mate with the words "Good on yer, Kerry, you've been true blue [loyal].
Packer believed that people could be bought. In , before he pulled off perhaps his greatest coup in establishing World Series Cricket , he was stuck in talks with the Australian Cricket Board about television rights to Test matches.
He also liked to win, especially at gaming tables around the world, where tales of his successes, losses and extraordinary tips are legendary.
Yet Packer's one weakness was his health. His biographer Paul Barry said males in the Packer dynasty loved a bet, hated paying tax, were excessively secretive and tended to die young with heart trouble.
On all counts Kerry was no exception, and was aware he was living on borrowed time. In June , rumours of his death swept world markets and the share price of his listed media company, Publishing and Broadcasting, fell.
The Big Man, as he was known at his TV network Channel Nine, was in fact alive and well and living in London's Savoy hotel, where he regularly spent the polo season.
