Political Punter's £80,000 Gamble On Tory Majority in Hung Parliament
WILLIAM HILL have cut their odds for the Conservatives to be the largest single Party at the General Election, from 4/6 to 8/13 after further support. 'Although punters are not sure what the make up of the next government will be they are becoming more confident that the Tories will be the largest single Party, and the odds about that have been shortening consistently, having once been odds against at 6/5' said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe.
**One West Country- based William Hill customer has staked £56,000 on the Tories winning most seats, and stands to collect £110,000 as a result. 'The same client stands to win over £50,000 if there is a Hung Parliament' said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe, 'Having staked a total of £23,409 on a Hung Parliament, the customer will also collect £51,043.18 should it happen, having wagered 23 bets of between £500 and £2000 on that outcome.'
