Gold medals that "Leicester" had won brought thousands of pounds to the fans but as it appeared not only to those who had bet on "Leicester" deliberately. Two firemen from London have made a bet in 5£ by mistake that "Leicester" will become the champion this season and had won £20 000 (about $29000).
23 years old fan of "Chelsea" Jordan Wright and 25 years old fan of "Arsenal" Mitchell Baldok have made a bet in £5 with odds 2001,0 each in the bookmaker Betfred that "Leicester" will become the champion as The Sun informs.
The citizens of Thurrock that work as firemen in London thought that bookmaker by mistake has proposed such huge odds on the victory of "Leicester" for the match of the first match day with "Sunderland" (the match ended with the victory of Jamie Wardy and the company with the score 4:2). Wright has thought so and he persuaded his partner to make a bet.
Guys say that despite of the football preferences they are happy that "Leicester" is the winner of the season.
"All like underdogs so it is pleasant to see that they have won", - Badlok said that he had believed in the Championship of "Leicester" after very important victory of Cladio Ranieri team over "Manchester City" with the score 3:1.
According to the words of the owner Betfred Fred Done it was the first time in the history of company that someone has won by mistake such huge sum of money. "Good luck to Mitchell and Jordan - we have never paid so much to the guys who have made a bet by mistake",- as he commented this event.
"Leicester" has created his championship in the 36th tour due to the mistake of "Tottenham" that was not able to win "Chelsea" but "Tottenham" after the first time was leading with the score 2:0 (match ended with draw 2:2). The luck of "Leicester" became the luck of those who decided to bet on Ranieri team just before the season began.
