PADDY POWER SNOWED UNDER WITH FESTIVE BETS
Top Irish bookmaker Paddy Power was today inundated with bets on a white Christmas as Ireland woke up to bitter temperatures and frost covered grounds.
The odds on a single snowflake falling in Dublin on Christmas Day were cut to 9/2 from 5/1 after an avalanche of bets flooded in on the festive market. Further north, the Paddy Power odds on Belfast waking up to a blanket of snow were also cut to 7/2 from 4/1.
Ireland's last "official" white Christmas was in 2004. This year, a single snowflake registered in Dublin airport on the 25th December could cost the bookie in excess of €75,000.
Sharon McHugh, spokesperson for Paddy Power said: "We always witness a flood of bets the minute a bit of ice forms on the ground. It's been five years since we last saw a white Christmas so punters might just get their wish this year!"
