The British bookmakers are among the most famous in the world. And for the Olympic Games have been made available to interested parties a wide variety of choices and some very curious.
What are the odds you see a UFO during the opening ceremony of the Olympic Games in London? Or that the last charge of carrying the torch tripped while climbing the stairs to light the cauldron?
The London bookmakers offer the opportunity to bet almost anything including all sports in the Games. The gambling industry expects $ 155 million during the competition, which runs from July 27 to August 12.
“We try to satisfy the tastes of the people,” said Joe Crilly, a spokesman for bookmaker William Hill, urging punters to call them to suggest any idea they can imagine. William Hill offers online gambling in 182 countries.
Ladbrokes, another British house provides 11 000 different betting during the games, according to spokeswoman Jessica Bridge. Among the possibilities, you can bet that the Games will exceed the budget that they are planning a British athlete is portrayed eating a Big Mac from McDonald’s, or are run out of condoms in the Olympic Village.
William Hill betting offers perhaps the rarest of the Games: pays 1,000 to 1 if a UFO appears over the Olympic Stadium during the opening ceremony on Friday.
And if you prefer something more traditional, you can bet on who will finish better between Russia and Spain in the synchronized swimming.
