Brexit Bets Hit New High

BOOKMAKERS WILLIAM HILL say 72.08% of all bets they have so far taken on the outcome of the EU Referendum have been for 'Leave'- the highest percentage they have seen since betting began.

Meanwhile, Hills have seen a decline of almost 20% in the 'Remain' percentage of all the money gambled on the outcome, from a high of 84% on April 25 to 64.78% now.

'We are taking a higher percentage of individual bets for 'Leave' than ever before, and a significantly lower percentage of the overall stake money is for 'Remain' than for nearly two months' said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe.
