Mystery Punter Leaves £31k Unclaimed

A mystery William Hill customer has so far left a whopping jackpot win of over £31,000 unclaimed. The spectacular win is the result of a 50 pence stake on a football bet that consisted of nine selections resulting in a draw.

The bet was placed in Arbroath on Friday 10th August on the next day’s matches. The punter backed an array of draws including the Hull v Rotherham clash in the Capital One Cup which went to extra time and other games with teams leagues apart. Aldershot helped bump his winnings up by gaining an unlikely draw at Molineux against Wolves at odds of 3/1.

“The close to 64,000/1 shot is a fantastic win and an amazing start to the season for someone but to leave it unclaimed since Saturday is rather unusual. We are not sure if this customer has gone on holiday or if he just doesn’t realise how lucky he has been but we will be more than happy to pay out when the penny drops,” said William Hill spokesman Mark Young.

Special Comeback At Chelsea ?

A SPECIAL CHELSEA COMEBACK? YOU BET………..

William Hill have cut their odds for Jose Mourinho to return to Stamford Bridge as the next permanent Chelsea boss from 8/1 to 4/1 after taking a number of three figure bets on the Special One succeeding Carlo Ancelotti. ‘We saw three figure bets in those hot spots of football, Barnsley and Kent, but with a number of other, smaller wagers also being staked there is clearly speculation that Jose is not long for Real and that Carlo could be history at Chelsea by next season. Bitter experience has taught us to react quickly to unexpected beting moves in ‘Next Boss’ markets!’ said Hill’s spokesman Graham Sharpe.
