Paddy Power Pays Out Early on Clinton Winning US Election
While there are still a few weeks to go until the US elections bookmaker Paddy Power has started paying out bets on Hillary Clinton to win.
So far the bookmaker has paid out more than £800,000 in winnings. The bookmaker said that given the recent revelations about Trump the chances of him winning “now look as patchy as his tan”. Punters have been backing Clinton in their droves at the Irish bookmaker and the bookmaker has decided that there is no chance of them being wrong.
In the past Paddy Power has paid out early on Scottish voters opting to stay in the EU and Barack Obama winning a second term in the White House. However, if they have called this wrong it will result in the biggest political payout in bookmaking history and leave the bookmaker fairly embarrassed.
