Bookies Bet On Biggest Black Friday Ever!
The latest Americanism to cross the pond is the phenomenon of Black Friday, a date that has grown in popularity over the years. Last year, Amazon.co.uk reported sales figures of £4m – a record for the UK and William Hill are offering odds of 8/11 that this year’s Black Friday tops £5m on Amazon.co.uk. It is 1/2 to beat last year’s record.
“British bargain hunters have really embraced Black Friday and we fully expect that money will be changing hands at a faster rate than ever before,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly.
