Bookies refund Rear Of Year after Pippa punt fails
William Hill have decided to refund all bets placed on this year’s Rear of the Year after 50/1 outsider Carol Vorderman beat red hot favourite Pippa Middleton to the 2011 crown.
Hills had seen the price of Pippa winning plummet from 10/1 outsider to 1/2 odds on favourite after her stunning performance on royal wedding day, other contenders included Cheryl Cole at 8/1 and Amanda Holden also at 8/1.
“We think punters have had a bum deal here, how can Pippa’s 230,000 ‘ass appreciation’ followers be wrong? We are refunding all losing bets and if you fancy an Ante-Post-erior bet for next year Pippa is offered at 1/1,” said Hill’s spokesman Rupert Adams.
William Hill have set up an alternative ‘Best Bot’ competition, where you can vote for your favourite, one lucky winner will get a £100 free bet on who will finish bottom of the Premier League this season, Arsenal are 2500/1.
Simply pick your Best Bot from the list below before the closing date of 30 June 2011. When the results are in we'll reveal who came top and all those who voted for her will be entered into a draw to win a £100 free bet to be spent on who will finish bottom of the Premier League next year.
