The World Didn’t End, So Whats Next in 2013?


The World Didn’t End, So Whats Next in 2013?

With 2012 almost done and dusted and the Mayan’s getting their doomsday prophecy wrong, attention can now turn to what is in store for 2013.

In what looks to be a massive year, online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au has opened markets on a number of topics ranging from politics and the Federal Election, entertainment, business and even the weather.

“There is plenty on in 2013 but the election looks to be the big one. As a result we have a market on what Julia Gillard might do post the election, with becoming an official Kevin Rudd spokesperson an unsurprising outside chance at $81,” said sportsbet.com.au’s Shaun Anderson.
