What Is Political Betting?While betting on politics might seem a little daunting - after all, the running of a country is much more complex than thumping a ball into the back of the net - it really isn’t and you will play most markets in exactly the same way you would a sports bet.
You’re essentially backing an outcome to happen. If it does, you win the bet.
For example, you can liken the next Prime Minister market to the next Arsenal manager market in football betting. All you’re doing is betting on the next person to be placed in that role. Should that person be placed in the Prime Minister position next, you will win. If somebody else is elected Prime Minister, you lose. It’s that simple.
Where To Bet On Politics?More and more bookmakers are offering politics markets these days and the big names like Paddy Power, Ladbrokes and William Hill have a large number of markets available to play.
At Bet & Skill we work with a huge range of fantastic bookmakers in the UK, all of which will have political market, particularly British politics markets.
For the most part they’ll have their own category, which you can select from the main menu, just as you would boxing, football or cricket. From there you’ll be directed to all the markets. They’re typically self-explanatory and you can usually browse through a number of categories within it such as British, US, Canadian and European, as well as a Brexit section.
If you’re ready to get started with political betting, head to our Bookmakers page and select the right brand for you. Here you’ll find in-depth reviews as well as plenty of information on how to sign-up to them.
Political Betting MarketsThe number of political betting markets offered by bookmakers is very much dependent on what’s happening in the world, with specials always offered by the more popular brands across the year.
You will commonly find a number of markets however, no matter what the time of year. Markets such as Next Prime Minister, Next US President, Next Party Leader and a number more.
However, during elections you’ll also find markets on the number of seats a party will win, voter percentages both in Over/Under form and even who will win in a particular constituency.
Then of course there’s Brexit. Since the EU referendum in 2016 there have been a huge number of markets available to play, particularly by Paddy Power. You can still bet on whether it will happen, as well as whether there will be another referendum, the strength of the pound if it does happen and more.
Among the more common political markets currently available are:
- Next UK Prime Minister
- Next US President
- Will Trump Be Impeached?
- Party To Win Overall Majority
- Number Of Seats [a party will win]
- Voter Turnout Percentage
- Next Country To Leave EU
- London Mayoral Election 2020 Winner
And of course many more. You can also request your own odds with many bookmakers through their request-a-bet features on social media.
