A Swedish gambling company says a punter in Norway has won 5,600 kroner ($916) on a bet that Uruguay striker Luis Suarez would bite someone during the World Cup.

Betsson group spokesman Mikael Mellqvist told The Associated Press in an email on Wednesday that a bettor in Norway won the money on a 32 kroner bet, increasing the outlay 175-fold.

He said the company received bets on a Suarez bite amounting to "six-figures in Norwegian kroner."





Norwegian media identified the winner as Thomas Syversen, who reportedly was asleep during the Uruguay-Italy game on Tuesday, when Suarez allegedly bit Italian defender Giorgio Chiellini on the left shoulder.

A foul was not called but FIFA is investigating the claim and might suspend Suarez, who has twice before been disciplined for biting
