Paddy Power is Counting the Costs of Their Early Clinton Payout
The Irish bookmaker is suffering from its biggest political layout, after having to pay over $4.5 million to the customers who wagered on a Donald Trump win. Paddy Power is currently counting the costs of its decision to pay out $800,000 for the Democratic candidate win back in October. Donald Trump defied the pre-election polling to claim the swing states, which include Ohio, Florida and Pennsylvania. This was aided by the FBI’s reopening of the Hillary Clinton case about the private email server she used while being Secretary of State. The shocking Republican victory in Wisconsin put Trump over the 270 electoral votes he needed to win the race for the White House. A spokesperson for Paddy Power shared with us that they are in the market to make predictions, so they decided to make an early payout on Clinton, and he added: “boy did we get it wrong”. He continued about how they have been hit by Trump, as his victory left them with the biggest political payout in the history of the company and quite the expensive egg on their faces. Courageous by the shocking result, the bookmaker has started a special Donald Trump series for their clients. This includes odds for the re-election of Trump in 2020, as well as for a wall being built between the Mexican and US border and even for Russia to be the first international country he will visit.
