One of the residents of northwestern London, perhaps, doesn`t even think how lucky he was: thanks to the victory of the football club Benfica in the Portuguese championship last weekend, put on £ 90 turned into £ 243,858. Nevertheless, the staff of the betting office William Hill failed to contact him.
Joe Krilli, representative of William Hill, suggested that the "lucky guy" simply forgot about his multiple bets on several matches, because he made it back in December 2016. "Imagine if he just forgot about his bet, then it will be a pleasant surprise for him," said Krilli.
The football fan bid £ 90 on the victory of Chelsea in the Premier League, victory of Newcastle United in the Championship, victory of Sheffield United in the First England Football League and victory of Benfica in the Portuguese Championship. And after "Benfica" won "Vitoria" on May 13, 2017 with a score 5:0, thus having won the title for the fourth time in a row, it turned out that the same client of William Hill predicted the results once again.
This event became decisive for the gambler: all the conditions of the bet were satisfactory. The gain was £ 243,858.21. A week has passed already, but the fan never got in touch with the betting office.
