£10,000 On Labour Victory As The Big Boys Join The Gamble On Labour

On Saturday afternoon a William Hill customer from Guilford placed a £10,000 bet on Labour winning the most seats at the General Election at 6/1 – if proved correct he will collect a cool £70,000.


“The vast majority of small bets that we have taken have been for a Labour victory and for the first time it appears that the big boys think that Labour could pull this off too,” said William Hill spokesman Rupert Adams.
