Trump Triumph Threatens To Result In Record Payout

DONALD TRUMP is now 1/2 favourite (stake 2 for profit of one) with bookmakers William Hill to secure the Republican nomination, and down to 5/2 second favourite (stake 2 for profit of 5) with Hills to win the race to the White House following his latest success in Nevada.

'Mr Trump has triumphed yet again, despite political analysts almost unanimously writing him off as a serious Presidential contender' said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe, 'However, political punters, who have been betting on him becoming President since he was 200/1 to do so are closing in on the biggest Presidential payout since we started betting on US Elections some fifty years ago. One customer of ours alone, John Mappin, from Cornwall in the West Country of England, will collect at least 100,000 dollars if Trump wins'

WILLIAM HILL: TO BE NEXT PRESIDENT; 4/5 Hillary Clinton; 5/2 Donald Trump; 5/1 Marco Rubio; 12/1 Bernie Sanders; 22/1 Michael Bloomberg; 66/1 Joe Biden; Ted Cruz; John Kasich.

TO BE REPUBLICAN NOMINEE: 1/2 Trump;13/8 Rubio; 33/1 Cruz/Kasich

TO BE DEMOCRAT NOMINEE: 1/7 Clinton; 11/2 Sanders; 25/1 Joe Biden
