Hills Report Multiple Bets After UN Appoints Alien Ambassador
After the UN announced the appointment of an “Alien Ambassador” this week, William Hill has reported “multiple bets” from punters backing the discovery of extra terrestrial life.
Mazlan Othman was unveiled as the 'First Contact' at the office of Outer Space Affairs and Hills are offering 100/1 on either the President or the serving British Prime Minister to announce the existence of intelligent extra-terrestrials.
The bookmaker has reported taking “multiple bets” on alien life being confirmed, which are valid for one year from placing the bet. Hills also offer 1/2 that it is the USA that make first contact with ET and hopefully refer them to Mazlan.
Russia is next in line at 10/1, with China at 14s and the UK, France and India all available at 16/1.
"The fact that the UN actually has a alien ambassador has got Alien punters buzzing and we have to hope they are wrong as we have seven figure liabilities," said Hill's spokesman Rupert Adams.
