Boylesports have refunded £100,000 of bets on the PDC Darts World Championship after Adrian Lewis claimed a second successive title with a 7-3 triumph over Andy Hamilton at the Alexandra Palace.
The bookmaker promised to refund all losing outright bets placed on the tournament between 12th December 2011 and the start of the tournament on 15th December 2011 should Lewis triumph.
The 26-year-old became only the third player to successfully retain a World Championship following a debut title, after Eric Bristow and Raymond Van Barneveld. The 2011 and 2012 champion was on the brink of elimination twice previously in the tournament, but showed his fighting spirit to eventually land the £200,000 winning cheque.
“Adrian Lewis has once again shown his critics that he’s the man to beat at the moment and his victory has cost us a substantial sum ,” comments Boylesports PR Spokesperson Nicola McGeady. “Jackpot stated he’s after ten world titles before he retires and from this evidence there’s no reason why he cannot dominant the darts scene for years to come.”
Daily Sport says – Well done Adrian everybody loves a bookie basher
