Suarez was seen allegedly chewing on Giorgio Chiellini’s shoulder during Uruguay’s 1-0 win over Italy in their final Group D game.
Malta-based online gambling site Betsson were offering odds of 175-1 that Suarez would get his gnashers out again and sportsbook manager Andreas Bardun confirmed 167 bets had been placed, with the biggest winner scooping almost £2,000.
Thomas Syverson from Norway was one of the lucky chancers and told ESPN: “I had 32 [Norwegian] Krone on it (about £3), so it was just for fun.”
Another gambling site, Betsafe, paid out on 39 winning bets, which included one punter pocketing a cool £1,729.
“We saw the incident and thought it was obvious,” a spokesperson said.
“Betsafe players are in it to win it, and we saw no reason to delay them from getting what they deserve.”Post published in: World News
