No date has yet been set in stone, and PaddyPower members can now bet on when the new Scottish Referendum is introduced.
On September 18th, 2014 a Referendum was introduced that allowed Scottish citizens to vote for whether they wanted to stay in the UK or not. More than 84% of Scots voted, making it the highest turnout for an election or referendum in the UK since universal suffrage was introduced, and the decision was to stay.
In June of 2016, UK gambling news announced that the UK had voted in favor of leaving the European Union. 62% of Scottish people voted to stay in the EU, and after the results were read talks began about a new independence referendum being introduced.
No date has yet been set, but PaddyPower is already allowing their members to bet on when the new Scottish Referendum is introduced. Let’s take a look at the current betting odds.
New Scottish Referendum betting odds
It takes quite a few logistics for Scotland to reintroduce a new referendum, though it is possible. At the moment, the year with the highest odds is sometime after 2020 at 1/1, according to PaddyPower. This certainly seems the most likely, as it will probably take at least a few years before the steps necessary could be taken.
Sometime in 2019 is also a solid betting option at 8/1. Those that want to bet on when the new Scottish Referendum is introduced and feel it will be quicker than expected can bet on it coming in the first quarter of 2018, which has odds of 25/1. Think it will be introduced this year? You have the opportunity to cash out with current odds of 33/1.
