A Maltese national’s luck has been William Hill’s big lost. The popular bookie was forced to pay out the sum of £570,000 at the last part of 2011.

The Maltese villager placed a bet of €1 punt on a 19 fixture accumulator last November and this has resulted in Glen Johnson getting a much stained reputation for Liverpool up against Stamford Bridge’s Chelsea.

The lucky better is a 41 year old Maltese waiter and he luckily won £570,000 for his 683,783/1 bet, which happened to be a very good prediction.

Hills put the blame of the result on the fall in victory margins from 19 % to 17 % over the last quarter as a group of favorites that include Charlton, West Ham and Arsenal have all gathered victory. The big losses were just additions to the most terrible months that the firm has experienced in more than a decade. This is despite the fact that the company earned some cash over Christmas.

Despite the big lost during the last part of the year, William Hill might still meet the expectations of having £247 million revenues for last year. This though might still be slightly higher than what the bookmaker made in 2010.

William Hill’ Chief Executive, Ralph Topping announced that, November was still a good month because their football betters who are putting their bets on small stakes were able to gather high-return multiple punts.

But the fact remains that William Hill had counted a big amount of £570,000 as a pay out for the cost of a single goal that made a Maltese villager richer by that same amount. The waiter’s good prediction had made way for other small-time punters to be encouraged to try their lucks like the big winner did.
