Record Number of Bets Projected for BCLC Biden vs. Trump Wager

Record Number of Bets Projected for BCLC Biden vs. Trump Wager

With the Biden vs. Trump wager, it’s one of the biggest events happening this year – the US Presidential election. Novelty gaming keeps gaining popularity with people of legal age all over Canada, and the British Columbia Lottery Corporation is, as always, keeping things relevant and interesting. Betting is sky-high with 10,000 players across the province expected to bet on the presidential election taking place on November 3. If projections are correct, this will be a new record for the online gaming platform PlayNow.

This will make November 3 an exciting day not just for Americans, but also for all Canadians taking part in the wager as this could be a chance to win big like this couple earlier this summer. Betting online is an easy way for players to be able to change their lives forever. The Crown corporation is offering these chances to thousands of individuals by attracting their attention with new bets that are current and linked to what is happening right now all over the globe. Novelty gaming also allows participants to express their opinion, and everyone has a few thoughts on the presidential candidates. This is expected to generate a flurry of activity as never seen before on the BCLC’s online platform.

With projections showing that up to 10,000 individuals are expected to place a bet, there are sure to be some conflicting signals on who the front-runner is going to be. The two options are current President Donald Trump from the Republican Party, and Joe Biden, the Democratic nominee. The BCLC has put forward odds that favor Mr. Biden as being elected President on November 3, but the majority of the people who have wagered a bet so far seem to believe that it is Donald Trump who will be re-elected as President for the upcoming 4 years. According to the BCLC, Mr. Biden’s odds for winning stand at 10/19, with about 27% of all bets being placed on him. Wagers placed on Donald Trump currently amount to around 44%, with the rest of the percentage being placed on Vice President Mike Pence and Democratic Vice-Presidential Nominee, Kamala Harris, among other non-candidates.

Placing a bet on this particular wager on PlayNow.com could result in huge cash payouts for the players. The odds available right now would result in a 152 percent payout. The odds that President Trump has attracted amount to 33/20, which would translate to a 255 percent payout. Individuals could also choose to bet on Kanye West for just CA$2. If Kanye West ends up being elected President, the player would see that CA$2 bet turned into CA$2,002.

British Columbia was the first province in Canada to offer betting on the US Presidential elections, back in 2014. Since then, President Donald Trump has been the subject of many novelty bets and games. Just last year alone, people could place bets on whether he would be impeached or not, and on the many Presidential nominations.

However, the last record broken for the biggest number of bets placed on PlayNow.com was in 2016, when approximately 7,200 people placed a wager on the US Presidential election of that year. This means that it was bigger than any sports bets on the NBA playoffs, Stanley Cup playoffs, or even the Super Bowl. A lot of players ended up winning a substantial amount of money, but the record has not been beaten since. This could all change next week.
