More Than A Million Gambled On Royal Baby

As the big day approaches, betting on the forthcoming Royal baby has gone through the roof according to leading bookmaker Coral, who estimate that over £1 million has been gambled on the new arrival across the UK betting industry so far.

“Punters have gone Royal baby betting mad and we are taking bets on the new arrival every hour across the nation. Turnover has soared and in particular more and more female punters are coming through the doors or going online to make their predictions”, commented Coral’s Nicola McGeady.

There has been a fresh surge of bets ahead of Kate’s due date, while the biggest bet Coral has taken to date is one of £5,000 bet on Kate having a girl, at odds of 4-5, that was struck in March.

“If the money talks, then the newest heir to the throne will be a seven-pound brunette Princess named Alexandra, born sometime in the morning,” added McGeady.
