General Election Betting 2019: Your Complete Guide
To say it’s a tumultuous time in Britain when it comes to politics is an understatement. For over three years the nation has had Brexit looking over its shoulder and on December 12, the country will go into a General Election for one last time before leaving, or potentially staying, in the European Union.  Below you’ll find all you need to know about General Election betting, including the best bookies to play with and all the markets available.

What is General Election Betting? 

General Election betting is relatively simple to understand and is the same as betting on sport, but backing the various outcomes of a political election in the UK.

The most common bet is on the party/politician to become the next prime minister and to win, the party must receive the most votes and their candidate elected.

However, there are many other markets available to bet, just as you’d find when placing a bet on the To Win market in a Premier League game. You can discover more about this further down the page.

When is the Next General Election? 

There have been calls for a General Election throughout 2019 and will take place on December 12, 2019 under the provisions of the Early Parliamentary General Election Act 2019.

It’ll be the first to be held in December since 1923 and will be critical in how the country moves forward with leaving the EU.

It’s already stirred up a huge betting market and more and more are dropping the likes of football and horse racing in order to back Boris Johnson or Jeremy Corbyn at both the polls and the bookmakers.

General Election Betting Markets 

There are a number of markets that are available to bet on when it comes to a General Election. As you’d probably expect, the winner of the election is the most popular to bet on and is simply an outright winner wager.

However, you’ll also find many other betting opportunities. Below are the most common General Election betting markets:   

Overall Majority

This market involved betting on the party to receive the overall majority of votes in the election.

Most Seats

This bet is to back the party who will win the most parliamentary seats across the UK.

Prime Minister after the 2019 Election

This is betting on the individual person who will become prime minister following the election.

Party No. of Seats

This is an over/under market on the number of seats a particular party will earn.

Next Prime Minister

This is a wager on the politician to be the next prime minister, therefore excluding the one currently in power.

As well as this you’ll find a number of novelty markets including bets such as “snow on Election Day”. Alongside General Election betting, there are also many Brexit markets which run parallel, particularly as a number of parties will offer new referendums and potentially pull out of Brexit all together.

These markets include the date of Brexit, when it will happen and even whether Britain will announce food rationing (a Paddy Power market if ever we’ve seen one!).
