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.

Gb Living Dangerously As A Draw Will Do

Team GB square up against Uruguay on Wednesday night knowing that a draw will see them qualify from the Group. GB are the 6/4 slight favourites with William Hill. Underperforming Uruguay are 13/8 and the draw is 11/5.

Senegal are 10/11 favs to top Group A, GB an 11/10 chance to top the group and Uruguay the current outsiders at 5/1. Liverpool and Uruguay striker Luis Suarez is 6/1 to net first against GB and 7/4 any time, both prices shared by Chelsea forward Daniel Sturridge. Highly rated Napoli forward Edinson Cavani has not had the best of tournaments so far but is 13/2 to turn that around with the opener on Wednesday. Gb captain Ryan Giggs is 12/1 to open the scoring again as he did against UAE.

“It is a difficult situation for team GB as they face a top side knowing a draw will be enough. Uruguay need to win so an entertaining affair should be on the cards as the South Americans will go looking for goals in their quest for gold,” said William Hill spokesman Mark Young.

The Come Beck Kid 7/2 To Fulfil Olympic Dream

Stuart Pearce may have not selected David Beckham for the 18 man Olympics football squad but he has hinted that he may well be on the stand by list. He is 7/2 with William Hill to play at the games.

If selected on the stand by list Beckham could only take the place of Ryan Giggs, Craig Bellamy or Micah Richards due to the restrictions of over age players. Golden Balls is 8/1 to score this summer and it is 14/1 that it is from a free kick. Even more remarkable would be if he captained the team. That is offered at 12/1 with Hills.

“Becks playing at the Olympics would be remarkable even to his own standards. It was a shock to see him omitted from the squad but would be even more shocking if he were to come back. No one wants to play for their country more than Beckham and it would be really good to see him represent Team GB this summer,” said William Hill spokesman Mark Young.

7/2: Beckham to play at the Olympics

8/1: Beckham to score at the Olympics

12/1: Beckham to be GB captain

14/1: Beckham to score a free kick at the Olympics
