Eurovision: Sweden Spark Million Pound Payout
Red hot favourites Sweden cost the bookies a pretty penny after they won the Eurovision song contest. The UK managed a couple of points but once again they were way off the pace. William Hill are offering 10/1 that the UK wins the competition at any point in the next ten years.
“The Swedish victory sparked a million pound plus payout for the bookies. Fortunately the UK managed a couple of points as it would have cost us a five figure sum if we had failed to get a single point,” said William Hill spokesman Rupert Adams. “Our days of winning are probably over and we are 10/1 that we manage victory at any point in 10 years.”
