Bookmakers: “Punter of the Year Award can f*ck off”



Punter of the Year award called 'obscene' by bookmakers in furious rant

Bookmakers brand new 'Punter of the Year' initiative - to recognise the best gambler in a calendar year - 'obscene’ in furious rant.

Bookmakers, racecourses, and horse racing groups who are all
funded from gamblers’ losing money have blasted a new award to recognise
heroics in punters as ‘obscene’.

Launched today, the Punter of the Year award has been opposed by bookmakers who are ‘livid with rage’ at honouring ‘a load of sh*t bags’.

The first of its kind, a punter’s award would recognise the anyone who wins money from bookmakers.

Mugbet’s Dik Venom said: “It’s insane to honour these scumbags.”

“You think parasites who steal from us need a trophy? Quarantining is what they need.”

Keith Vim said: “21 Betting Shop Manager of the Year finalists have collectively been paid £500,000 salaries from gamblers’ losing bets over the last 12 months, but it's outrageous to honour anyone who wants to take 1p of that money away from us.”

“A Jockey of the year, Trainer of the year, Horse of the year, Groom of the year, Owner of the year, Racecourse of the Year, Broadcaster of the year, even a Betting Shop Manager of the year are all established awards, however no plaudits should exists for scumbag punters.”

Shop manager Alf Archer said: “The Betting Shop Manager of the Year award comes with a VIP trip to Hong Kong. If anyone wins money from us, who’s going to pay my five grand ticket and fifty grand a year expenses if I win?”

Punter Gareth Timms said: “We’re not asking for a lot, We’re told shouldn’t win any money because it’s bad for the levy, but there’s always an endless supply of cash to pay bookmakers’ salaries, TV stations, and the gambling charities their 6-figure per year salaries.”

“While I’m not allowed to win more than 3 quid on a bet, there are millions of pounds per year for pointless jockey betting blogs, and those pom-pom hats and woolly coats for trainers struggling to scrape by on £3 million per year in prize money.”
