It’s a Girl! Bookie Pays Out Early on Royal Baby
With the Duchess of Cambridge allegedly spilling the beans that she is having a daughter, online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au has paid out early on all bets placed on the sex of the royal baby being a girl.
After the story broke that she may have jumped the gun and revealed the sex of the baby, punters were quick to jump on board, with a number of bets coming for the baby to be a girl in the last few hours.
“Kate is usually pretty good at keeping a secret but it seems a bit of baby brain has struck here, and it is enough to convince us that the third in line for the crown will be a girl!” said sportsbet.com.au’s Shaun Anderson.
With the early payout, the market on the sex of the baby has been closed.
