Couple Wins $420 Million after Betting on Donald Trump

A couple from Utah just won $420,32 million after betting on Donald Trump for the presidential election.

Frank and Drothy Miller were so deeply convinced that Mr Trump was destined to become president, that they decided almost a year ago to take a mortgage on their farm and bet everything they had on him.

They placed all the money on a single online bet, convinced that the payout would be worthwhile.

“Mr Trump is going to save America,” Ms Miller told reporters. “We just knew he would win, and we wanted to prove our faith. Now God has rewarded us for our devotion.”

Many of their close ones tried to convince the couple that betting on the flamboyant billionaire was a bad idea, but couple claims its faith was unshakable.

“Many unfaithful people told us not to do it,” said Mr Miller. “Our daughters, our friends and even our pastor tried to tell us it was a bad idea, but we knew that God was on his side, and that he would win.”

Many people have placed huge bets on the US presidential election, which has become single biggest betting event in history.

Bookmaker Betway reported a sizeable 75% of individual wagers on the race to the White House were on Trump, while 80% of the money had been for Clinton.

Mr and Ms Miller’s gains are exceptional, however, since they placed their bet of more than $1 million when Trump was chalked up at 300/1, just after he first declared his candidacy.
