Jake Land, from Buxton in Derbyshire, says he was pleased as punch when he discovered Donald Trump had won, thinking his bet from the night before had paid off big-time. When he checked the Sky Bet website, he was confused as to why his bet wasn’t showing up.
Jake, 22, told Mirror Online:
“I was going to put a bet on Donald Trump winning last night only to fall asleep.”I can’t remember the exact odds but I was looking at coming out with over £2000,” he claims.
“I woke up this morning excited, thinking I’ll be loaded but I’d fallen asleep and I hadn’t pressed ‘submit bet’.” “I don’t particularly think Donald Trump should be the President but it was a bet that I gambled with for higher odds,” he continued.
“Gutted is the word today – it could have been the other way around if I just didn’t fall asleep!”
Trump was declared President-elect after opening up a substantial lead against opponent Hillary Clinton.
