Bookies celebrate best winning World Cup game ever as:
PUNTER LOSES BIGGEST WORLD CUP BET OF ALL
A William Hill telephone betting customer who staked a record 500,000 euros on Germany to beat Spain has lost his wager – the largest World Cup bet ever. ‘Not only did the 500,000 euro bet lose, but so did the 100,000 and 80,000 euro bets on Germany to win the tournament, and another 75,000 euro wager on them to get past Spain’ said Hill’s spokesman Graham Sharpe, ‘Even though we have clients with £25,000 and £10,000 on Spain to win the World Cup we will be going into the Final celebrating the fact that Germany aren’t there. Germany losing that game made a difference of around £5million to us – it was almost certainly our best World Cup result ever. Now we’d like the Dutch to round off a fantastic tournament for us by beating Spain’ .
EVENS PAUL THE OCTOPUS TO PICK WORLD CUP WINNERS!
AND William Hill ARE NOW OFFERING ODDS OF EVEN MONEY THAT PAUL THE OCTOPUS WILL TIP THE WINNERS OF THE WORLD CUP AFTER HIS LATEST TRIUMPH IN SELECTING SPAIN TO BEAT GERMANY. ‘Punters are keen to keep on the right side of Paul’s tips, so we are giving them the chance to bet that he’ll pick the winner BEFORE they even know which side he has opted for’ said William Hill spokesman Graham Sharpe.
William Hill now make Spain 8/15 favourites to win the World Cup, with Holland offered at 6/4.
Hills make Spain Evens to win in 90m with Holland 12/5 and the draw 2/1.
