The EU and UK are still fishing for a deal but the deadline is just seven weeks away. Anyone who regularly puts the odd bet on politics in the UK knows that’s probably not long enough. The negotiations have stalled, the EU faces a budget crisis and the UK government is in turmoil. It’s hardly the most rosy of outlooks. So it may be time to hit up the online sportsbook sites in the UK offering prices, like Bet365, and bet on a no-deal Brexit. The only alternative is optimism.
The British government may have to do something about the lottery loophole. Typically, the law prohibits under 18s from gambling in the UK. Unfortunately, this doesn’t extend to lotteries. So UK lottery laws permit over 16s to purchase tickets and participate. This is something MPs and Lords would like to halt. So the operational terms of service for sites like Lotto Agent would change. Indeed if MPs have their way, even the best lottery jackpots will be reserved for adults only.
