Reports Surfaced Thursday that boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr. has placed a $3 million bet on the Michigan Wolverines to beat the Alabama Crimson Tide on Saturday.

British Olympian Gymnast Sam Oldham’s Granny Finally has Cashed Her BetFred Checks

After a long and unnecessary ordeal, the grandmother of Great Britain Olympian bronze medal gymnast Sam Oldham finally has cash in hand for the entire €1000 owed to her by bookmaker BetFred.

You might recall that BetFred initially refused to pay Linda Aldred, 66, her £1000 winnings on a £5 bet that her grandson Sam would win an Olympic medal.  BetFred claimed the bet was on an individual medal and that the team, not Sam specifically, won the bronze.  Great Britain won its first Olympic medal in 100 years.

BetFred Pays Olympian Sam Oldham Grandma With ‘Bad’ Check

BetFred finally paid British Olympian gymnast Sam Oldham’s grandma.  Too bad the check was no good!

Perhaps it was just an honest mistake but Linda Aldred tells Gambling911.com BetFred sent her and Sis two separate checks, neither of which were signed. 

“BetFred say they send out plenty of cheques (so) it is no unusual for an odd one to go unsigned,” Ms. Aldred said.  “Strange that two in the same dispute happen not to have been signed.”
