The bet was set to pay out £50,000 to end of the world believer Martin Muller if he won, though we’re not sure how he would claim it if the world had ended.

The 26-year-old Londoner made one of the most bizarre bets in the lead up to the Mayan Apocalypse.

The odds on the bet that the world would be destroyed today at 11.11am were 5,000-1.

Muller apparently made a bet with his friend Rob Moss, and said that there was more likelihood that the world would end rather than his bicycle courier business being a success.

“'I told Rob there was more chance of the world ending than his company getting off the ground,” said Muller to the Daily Mail.

“I thought as a joke I'd make the bet, I'd heard of the Mayan prophecy about December 21 being the apocalypse so thought what have I got to lose?”

As it turns out, his mate Moss’s bike business, Paddy Power, is a success and Muller has even signed up to the service himself.

Paddy Power is doing an alternative bet, they’re offering £10, 1000-1, bets on the fact that the sun will rise tomorrow.
