The British businessman bet $5 million on the victory of the current U.S. President Donald Trump in the presidential election. This was announced by The Sun newspaper on November 2.
It is reported that the businessman used the services of a private bookmaker’s office registered in Curacao. The victory rate for Trump was 2.85. Thus, if he wins, he will receive about $15 million. According to the source of the publication, before making a bet, the businessman consulted with “insiders from Trump’s camp.
“Rumors about this bet have diverged and we think it is the largest bet ever made on a political event,” the newspaper’s interlocutor from among representatives of betting companies said.
Jessica O’Reilly, a representative of Ladbrokes betting company, drew attention to the fact that over the last week, three quarters of the bets on the U.S. elections were made to win Trump.
