Crazy Purchases By Punters Who Won Big On Leicester’s 5000:1 Odds EPL Win
Leicester City Football Club have won the English Premier League. The betting odds that this would have occured were 5000:1 at the start of the season and if you’d placed a £200 bet at the start of the season, you would now be a millionaire. Even a £1 bet would have made you some serious cash, and this week many of those people called on the bookmakers to pay up so they could go out and spend those sweet pounds. Here is a list of what some of the biggest purchases have been by punters. For their own safety, Comedy Central Bench Warmers have blurred out there faces and changed their names.
Every year Elizabeth has placed a £200 bet on Leicester to win the EPL and this year was no exception. So she sure did win big, raking in a cool £1 million. What has Mrs Smithington purchased with the money? A Diesel Powered MechWarrior. The MechWarrior retails for a cool $1.35 million US, and Mrs Smithington and her daughters couldn't be happier. You can purchase the MechWarrior here if you're interested.
And here is an instructional video in case you're wondering how to use it:
John Lamington and Terry Philips
John Lamington and Terry Philips have been long time mates, and every year the pair split a £200 bet on Leicester. Holding out to the very end, the duo netted a big win... so what did they purchase? A roll of toilet paper covered in 22 carrat gold. If you too want to wipe with the best, you can get some here.
For as long as he can remember, Steven Ulrich has wanted a Killer Whale Submarine. At the start of the season, Mr Ulrich had a dream where a talking fox came to him and said he should place a £20 bet on Leicester City to win the EPL. This week, Mr Ulrich's dream became a reality:
You can buy the submarine here, check out the video below to see it in action:
Jim and Fred Jennings
Jim and Fred Jennings were drunk at the pub a year ago and the two brothers jokingly placed a £1.80 bet on Leicester to win the EPL. This week the brothers netted a cool £9000 and immediatley went and bought a real life Velociraptor Claw, unfortunatley the borthers had a falling out over who would get to keep the claw. Jim insists it was his idea to place the initial bet but Fred claims he was the one who found the £1.80 on the floor of the pub that fateful night. Sadly the pair no longer speak to one another, and the claw remains in storage. If you would like your very own raptor claw, you can buy one here.
