Elvisly Yours wins Worlds’ 
Largest Bet with William Hill

Elvisly Yours placed the largest bet in history with William Hill that Elvis will have the 1,000th no.1 hit in the UK and were given EVENS. The bet was a life-size Elvis Giclee Artwork. Win or lose the artwork was going be auctioned for the Tsunami Appeal. Since Elvis is no.1 Elvisly Yours can now collect the winnings to be donated to the Tsunami Appeal.  William Hill have said this is a rare time in history that bookmakers will have a smile on their face handing over winnings for such an important Appeal. 

To commemorate the 70th birthday of Elvis Presley  ' Elvisly Yours '  and the Canadian company "Zamage Digital Art Imaging Inc " published four spectacular life-size artworks of the King as limited editions of 70 of each. William Hill agreed to accept the no.1 of  the artwork  entitled "The Spirit of Elvis" as a stake in a bet placed by Sid Shaw of Elvisly Yours that Elvis will have the 1,000th no.1 single in UK history. A bet 6th high is considered the largest in history.  

 William Hill have valued the artwork at £1,000.00 and will pay £1,000.00 to the Tsunami Appeal.

 

 

The no.1 life-size artwork will be auctioned by Cooper Owen during their Jimi Hendrix Auction on February 15th 2005 without commission with 100% of proceeds going to the Tsunami Appeal. 

We are hoping that Bill Gates, Sultan of Brunei, Robbie Williams, Andrew Lloyd Webber, Chris Evans, Bill Clinton and Robert Sillerman, all big Elvis fans will join in the bidding..
