Mystery Woman Bets £183K On Hillary Clinton Winning the Election
A mystery punter has placed a bet of £183,000 on Hillary Clinton becoming the next US president at a William Hill branch in Northumberland.
The punter is known to be a 44 year old woman who has never placed a bet before. She initially placed a £170,000 bet before returning the next day to place an additional £13,200 with odds of 1/8. This means that the woman will receive a payout of £205,916, winnings of £22,716, if Clinton goes on to win the election.
A William Hill spokesperson said that the woman viewed the bet as an “investment”. It is the second largest bet to be placed on Clinton after another woman bet €550,000 when the odds were at 4/11. While punters are generally backing Clinton according to the William Hill spokesperson in recent weeks with Donald Trump’s odds drifting so much there are some bets being placed on him including one recently of £2,000.
