No it’s not – the Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â£35M is the return on winning bets.
Only if the average price of the winners is 2.0 does that represent Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â£35M of turnover.
Then again, there was Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â£880k traded on Harry’s horse Ouninphja today at around 1.33, so perhaps his stated preference for odds on shots means the figure is more than Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â£35M.
At a guess, and it can’t be anything other than that, perhaps Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â£50M staked per annum is in the right area. A weekly outlay of Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â£1M doesn’t sound too much given he operates across full range of sports betting.
Which equates to a R.O.I of 103.5%, a pretty poor rate.<br>Still, with an income of 2 grand a day tax free, s’pose you’d muddle through.:biggrin:
