People in one country bet £250 million on World Cup
By Michael
Brits went gambling crazy during the World Cup, placing bets totalling £250 million on the footy finals, up £160 million on 1998.

Bookies have had a bumper season, with the championships containing more than a few shock results.

'The tournament was very kind with results, like France, Argentina, Portugal going out early, then Italy falling in the second round,' said Ladbrokes spokesman Matt Finnigan.

'A lot of shocks (were) very good for us. But the cherry on top of the cream would have to have been a German victory. You can't have everything,' he added, smoking on a giant gold-leaf cigar.
