Nationwide Gamble On A White Christmas: William Hill Odds On After Flurry Of Bets
William Hill have been forced to take evasive action on a White Christmas today after a nationwide gamble on snow falling over the 24hrs of Christmas Day. Hills have cut the price of snow in all 15 of the cities that they bet on and it is odds on at 8/13 that snow falls in at least one of the cities the bookies bet on.
“The gamble started overnight and what started as a flurry ended up in a blizzard of bets,” said William Hill spokesman Rupert Adams. “If snow falls across the country, the industry could well be hit for a monster million pound payout.”
