The bookmaker company Ladbrokes has informed that the citizens of the Scottish region Dundee have made recently a lot of bets on the fact that this February will become the coldest month for the entire history of observations.
Bets on weather are the most popular especially in Scotland, as Evening Telegraph reports.
Ladbrokes has proposed players to bet on the fact that this February in Dundee will be the coldest in the history, with the coefficient 3.0. It is possible to bet on the fact that the current week temperature will fall lower than -10 °C with the coefficient 3.0 as well.
Also the company has offered its players an opportunity to bet on snowfall within the territory of Great Britain. It is possible to bet on snowfall during the current week with the coefficient 1.2.
"Recently, we are observing a real squall of bets on the fact that February will become the frostiest in the history. Frosty weather contributes to the growth in betting on snowfalls and record frosts" — the representative of the company has declared.
The UK meteorological office has reported earlier that this winter weather conditions can be compared with winter 2010 when the temperature was even -21 °C.
