Maltese Villager - A Nightmare For Bookmakers

A small bet brought him half a million

A lucky Maltese Villager, a 41-year-old waiter, placed a Euro 1 bet on 19 football fixtures and hit a jackpot, which consequently heavily impacted William Hill betting margins in November 2011. Namely, he won an incredible GBP570 000 on a 683,783/1 accumulator football fixture bet.

William Hill CEO Ralph Topping, said at the time: "November was certainly a very good month for our football clients betting on small-stake, high-return multiple bets."

What a big win for a small investment for this lucky punter!
