The outcome of the US presidential election has resulted in significant profit for Sporting Index following exceptional betting interest during the night.
[dropcap]S[/dropcap]porting Index has reported a successful US presidential election night with Donald Trump’s win set to result in a six figure profit for the spread betting company.
According to the company, there was unprecedented interest in the election and a huge number of bets were taken after 10pm on Tuesday all the way through to the early hours.
Ed Fulton, political trading spokesman for Sporting Index, said: “Five months of hard work has gone into our election book, covering all of the scandals, midnight suspensions of markets and more.
“The most divisive election in history has also proved to be one of the most volatile. While many expected Hillary to walk away with the keys to the White House, we were happy to take her on and that has paid off. The further Trump wins by, the better for us.”
