So I'm going karting Sunday I watched on TV a guy walk into William Hill and say I bet £10 my son will win a so and so golfing trophy by the time he's 21. Could I walk in and say I'm going to win my GP 50 race at Daytona MK tomorrow? It's computer tracking so there is no disputing the winner.

damn someone bet on me winning then, it's a sure thing :thumbsup:

i work in betting shop and we dont take them kind of bets instore u have to write off to our odds compilar for special bets i.e your son will play for man u or u will live till 100 etc

The man on TV was probably betting on quite a famous trophy, so they were able to give him odds. Alternatively, as it was on TV, it may have all been set up - ie. phone calls ahead first, etc.

Either way you can't bet on something so small, as the bookies won't know the odds.
