Chances are you’ve played in the snow, driven in it, and maybe complained about it, but now’s your chance to make money off it.
BCLC is offering a novelty bet on whether or not there’ll be a white Christmas in Vancouver.
“We feel this novelty bet is a way for people to have fun with the weather, especially during this festive time of year,” says spokesperson Doug Cheng
The bet applies to snowfall being recorded at Vancouver’s airport.
“This year, the odds of winning are 29-to-50. These are very favourable odds that we’ll have a white Christmas on Christmas Day this year.”
Currently, a $10 bet gets you $15.80 back, but Cheng cautions the odds will change.
You can also hedge your bets on cities in the United Kingdom.
But betting on snow in Winnipeg won’t get you much; a $10 wager will only get you five cents profit.
