LIGHTNING RELEASES: (London 17 May 2014) The world most exclusive private Internet betting exchange, betsports888.com has taken on one of the world’s largest and more fearless gamblers in a €10 million wager on the FA Cup final.
The ferociously fearless punter and Gunner supporter has risked €10 million to win €5 million in the FA Cup final against Hull.
Betsports888.com Operations Manager David Chee said, “We will never confirm nor deny any specific wager we make with any client, however we have taken a position against Arsenal that runs into the millions of euros.”
Hull City beat Middlesbrough, Southend, Brighton and Sunderland, before edging lowly Sheffield United 5-3 in a thrilling semi-final.
But the Tigers are undoubted underdogs against highly fancied Arsenal, who came through a tough run to beat Tottenham, Coventry, Liverpool and Everton, before edging Wigan on penalties to reach the final.
The Gunners are looking to end a nine-year trophy drought and are heavily backed to do so against Premier League mid-table dwellers Hull.
But Arsenal will be well aware of the FA Cup’s penchant for upsets and shocks, with Hull City looking to make history in its first ever FA Cup final appearance.
