European bookmaker Tonybet has revealed that UKIP leader Nigel Farage did not accept Antanas Guoga’s (Tony Guoga) €1 million charity bet on Britain remaining in the European Union.

The €1 million bet personally wagered by Guoga, would have capped off a victorious night for Farage as the ‘Leave’ camp won a nail-biting EU Referendum taking 52% of the votes.

Guoga the owner of Tonybet and a European Member of Parliament for Lithuania had guaranteed the best market price on a British ‘Leave’ outcome.

However, like all bookmakers’ that had priced ‘Remain’ as market favourite, Tonybet would be in for a rollercoaster night as the ‘Leave’ camp would outperform polls and indicators, outperforming ‘Remain’ in key UK regions.

Tonybet management would reveal to SBCNews that following a night of high political drama,  its trading team had taken a + £50,000 hit on the UK EU Referendum market.

Tony Guoga would comment on the BREXIT result – “Farage never took my bet – it was Cameron who was the real gambler & his all-in bet was called. We have to be positive & look forward. Charity missed out”.
