What Are the Odds?

oddsPolitical gambling is one of the easiest tasks under the sun or moon, whichever you prefer. Electorates, 80 percent of the time, stick to betting on the government ruling them but don’t imagine that players outside their nation aren’t taking advantage of those very profitable political gambling markets too.

With an approaching election, by far the most popular betting market is, ‘Who is going to be the next Prime Minister’ or the United States of America equivalent, ‘Who is going to be the next US President?’ of course these are most relevant to the United Kingdom and the United States markets and as such spark the most interest on those countries when we look at political betting.

The good thing about this is that players are left with a loft of lucrative options available to them, particularly if there’s an attention gripping political event from a less popular jurisdiction on the horizon.

UK and US politics versus other nations

As well as betting in the largest political betting markets, the UK and US, you can, with most betting firms, place bets on Irish politics and other nations depending on what the firm focuses on. The important thing is that you familiarize yourself with all the candidates from the word go so you can closely monitor their progress. Reading the political mood in the country you are interested in is also very important for you to increase your odds.

However, we need to point out that some media houses are openly biased to certain political affiliations such as Republican and Democrat, in the US. Players should therefore ensure that they get their information from both biased and unbiased news outlets so they get to know the both sides are counting on and in the end make the most informed and profitable decision.
