King Tut: Bookies Bet Queen NEVER-titi
Egyptologists have been working around the clock scanning the Tomb of Tutankhamun, in the search for long-lost Queen Nefertiti, but bookmakers William Hill reckon she won’t be found there.
“We think it’s a case of Nevertiti not Nefertiti,” said William Hill spokesman Jon Ivan-Duke. “Even Lara Croft would struggle to raid this tomb for Nefertiti.”
Scans suggest there could be hidden chambers within the Boy King’s tomb, which may lead to the burial place of Queen Nefertiti.
But William Hill make it odds-on at 2/9 that she won’t be found within Tutankhamun’s tomb (including hidden chambers leading from it). It is 3/1 that she is discovered there.
