BoyleSports Forced To Freeze Betting On White Christmas
BoyleSports have had to suspend betting on Snow on Christmas Day at Dublin Airport following an avalanche of bets on Sunday.
The majority of the country once again woke to a blanket of snow on Sunday morning and as Met Eireann issued an orange alert, suggesting temperatures will dip to minus 8C punters have been piling on the 3/1 odds for a White Christmas.
Our traders decided to freeze the Snow on Christmas Day market after a blizzard of bets came billowing in on Sunday. We’re in the midst of a big freeze and some punters suspect that it may last right up until the big day as they latched onto the 3/1 about snowfall at Dublin airport on Christmas Day.
Having shortened in from 5/1 to 3/1 and posing a large payout should we wake to a White Christmas we have had to pull the plug on the market, for now.
It will reopen once things begin to thaw.
