White Election Day – Why William Hill Will Be Paying A Meteorological Observer On General Election Day?
William Hill are offering 8/1 (from 10/1) that snow falls on the Houses of Parliament on General Election day. In order to facilitate the betting for a flake of snow to fall over the 24hrs of 12th December, William Hill have engaged the professional services of Jim Dale, Senior Consultant meteorologist from the British Weather Services to observe and result should a single flake fall on the Houses of Parliament.
Rupert Adams from William Hill said,” We wanted to go back to the old school snow betting and have decided the best way to do that is to employ an observer on the ground. The current odds are 8/1 but they could fall if we see more snow in the coming days.”
