Crazy sports bet earns grandfather Harry Wilson €150,000
“My grandson will one day wear the national team uniform!”, said Harry Wilson’s grandfather when Wilson was still a toddler. This daring sports bet earned him €150,000.
This made the choice which team to bet on Belgium - Wales rather obvious. Wales had no more hope of qualifying and hadn’t been doing too well against the top teams group A. Surprisingly though, the game ended in a draw, disappointing many sports betters.
It would be an exaggeration to say that this good result for Wales was in part thanks to the contribution of Harry Wilson. I mean, don’t get me wrong, Harry Wilson is an accomplished player. He has been signed to Liverpool for quite a while and impressed in their U16 and U18 teams. At the age of 16 he is the youngest player ever to play for the national team. But, only coming in at the 87th minute, his showing was short and uneventful. Still, it earned his grandfather €150,000.
When Harry was only 18 months old, his grandfather made a daring claim that he would one day play in the national team of Wales. A bet with a stake of €60 with odds of 2,500 to 1 was arranged and now made the grandfather €150,000 richer! Interesting extra fact: the English team also showed interest in Harry Wilson. Had that deal gone through, this bet would very likely never have been won!
When you bet on sports at goldenpalace.be there are many long term bets available as well. While not quite as crazy as this one, a daring combination bet still earns you up to 1,000 times your winnings!
