Paddy Power, an Irish bookmaker, regrets the decision to pay out players who back Hillary Clinton to win the US election before the final result is known. The main reason for it is a recent sharp increase in the numbers of bets on Donald Trump’s victory in the presidential elections.
Earlier this week, Donald Trump won 91 per cent of bets on who was to win the election race. His odds increased from 5/1 last week to 9/4 on Wednesday.
‘The number of bets on Trump’s winning the presidency on November 8 has increased dramatically for the last few days. The outsiders do not have such support. If he wins, we will lose a lot of money,’ a representative of Paddy Power told.
