Leicester set to cost William Hill £3 million


Claudio Ranieri’s team do confirm themselves as champions, something that is now looking very likely, then it would be the largest single price winner in William Hill’s history.


Tottenham’s draw against West Bromwich Albion means Leicester City are now within an inch of a first Premier League title. And William Hill have revealed that they face pay-outs of more than £3 million if the Foxes end the season in first place.

William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly said: “We stand to lose a small fortune if Leicester do what everybody must now be expecting them to do. 5000/1 is the biggest priced winner in betting history!”

25 people placed wagers on Leicester City to win the title before the beginning of the season and 40% of those bets have now been cashed out. The rest remain live with a potential pay out of £191,128 if players choose to see it through to the end of the season. In total, William Hill have taken £378,892 on Leicester and the final pay-out – should Leicester lift the trophy – currently stands at £3,015,673. It would be the biggest priced single winner in history.
