THERE have been some offers to buy the site recently but none matched the valuation – until now.
We’re delighted to announce mrfixitstips has been snapped up by well-known site user and entrepreneur Harpreet and from Thursday will be known Harpreet’s tips. Boom boom let’s shake the room!
The Midlands punter recently commented on the fact he was on holiday in Dubai but he was in fact putting the final stages of his seven-figure bid together with investor Sheikh Mohammed bin Foorallip.
Harpreet and the super-rich Sheikh have won hundreds of thousands of pounds on raaljaca’s goals tips and if you follow our twitter feed you’ll have seen proof of some of their big punts.
There won’t be too many changes to the site but anyone who comments will need to use the word “boom” for their post to be approved and if you’re boasting about a winning tip you’ll have to say “boom, boom” or just “boooooooooooooooooooom”.
Speaking from his suite at the world-famous Burj Al Arab Hotel Harpreet said: “I feel like a booooooooooooooom. I love this site and to have the means to buy it is great. Shaka laka boom boom.
“I’m hoping the regulars will embrace some new ideas I have but the best thing about the site is the tips from so many good people on the football, racing and sports threads. We’ll keep the contest but there will be no more £10 free bets.
“We’ll be giving away holidays, cars, Louis Vuitton skateboards and even my favourite gift – washing machines. Some people have branded me a fool in the past but who’s the fool now!”
Mr Fixit will continue to post tips until the end of the season and after that they’ll be available exclusively every day in the Daily Record.
Harpreet added: “I won’t be doing write-ups just tips. My tips are done on gut feeling and value for money and while not everyone will agree with them there will be more winners than losers. It’s going to boom time on Harpreet’s top tips – and I hope everyone enjoys the ride.”
Note: It’s now after 12pm so we can confirm this is an April Fool. Thanks to everyone who commented.
