Bookie Already Paying Out on British Election Bets

British/Irish bookmaker Paddy Power isn't waiting for the votes to be counted. So sure is it of a Conservative win that it's already paying out on all bets for Cameron to be prime minister and for the Conservatives to win the most seats.


Cameron’s strong performance in the final TV debate on Thursday saw a relentless tide of betting support for the Conservatives in the outright market, shortening the odds on the Tories winning most seats at the Election from 1/5 a week ago to just 1/16. Punters will be collecting over £100,000 from the leading bookmaker.
