Four Grand Guernsey Gamble

A William Hill client has channelled £4000 of his resources towards a Brexit vote in the EU Referendum.

The customer, based in Guernsey, stands to make a profit of £16,000 if the bet, struck at odds of 4/1 proves successful.

William Hill, currently offering 1/6 about a 'Remain' outcome, at which odds a Birmingham client has bet £5500 to make a profit of £916.66. This is far from the largest bet on 'Remain' with one bet of £100,000 at odds of 2/5 already struck with Hills.

'These latest four figure wagers on either side mean that 65.1% of all individual bets are for 'Leave', but 78.7% of all stake money is on 'Remain' said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe.
