A spokesman for Swedish gambling company Betsson said the punter originally bet 32 kroner ($5.21), the Associated Press reports. His winnings are 175 times more than that. Norwegian media has identified the gambler as Thomas Syversen. He was asleep when Suarez sank his teeth into Italian player, Giorgio Chiellini.
Betsson’s spokesperson added that they’d received bite bets worth over “six figures in Norwegian kroner.”
Suarez’s toothy attack is the third of his career. He tried to bite Chiellini last year at the Confederation Cup, a precursor to the World Cup.
