Title: Betting on Elections
Post by: BTCBinary on October 14, 2015, 02:59:35 AM
I was wondering... nowadays you can even bet on the weather conditions and stuff... so is there any site where we can bet on candidates for the elections?

You can try directbet. I ever saw there have a election betting but I never play on it because I guess it is hard to pick who is gonna win the election thing

Maybe you can send a request to directbet to include Philippines in the lineup for the Presidential Elections this May 2016.
It's interesting that there's a lot of candidates.

Saw it too on directbet and it is hard to pretend which one will be elected, even an old mistake that suddenly appears from nowhere can influence it largely.
(Meanwhile, i prefer if they add African/Asian elections. ;))

Yes indeed, I've had my interest in elctions recently as this will be the firat time that I will be voting. LOL. :D I take these kind of stufds seriously.

Anyway, I doubt they will take a request from a single person, a mass request might get their attention tho.

if you are really interested in pushing a request to directbet for them to add betting on the upcoming election in the Philippines, i can support you and we can ask more support from our local thread, im pretty sure they will be interested betting on that too

It is a good proposal. People can bet on their favourite candidates but it is the most difficult one to guess as well except in some cases their will be sure candidates like they might be winning from last few elections continuously. If these guys still doing good for his people then we can guess he/she may win otherwise quite difficult task to guess it.

Is this really possible?  ;D This will be hard. There are too many candidates. Maybe if it is a small country with a little population that would be easy. 3 or 4 candidates. But when you say its a country with a lot of people and candidates. Whew! Percentage of winning is low.  ;D

It's not that easy, there are somw cases where there are two opposing teams with huge supporters so there is really a chance that someone will actually wins against the other despise who others think will win.

If the winning party is obvious, then no one will really bet on it.

In our country we have a lot of candidates for President, the number of running for President can equal the number of contestants for Ms Universe lol
Of Course as time goes by some candidates will be kicked out and number will be trimmed down to less than 5 candidates I think since some are considered as a nuisance candidate.

Do we really need to include cloudbet about this election? do cloudbet includes local election to be bet?

why don't we make a poll thread and give the BTC to an escrow, so if that percentage wins, escrow will give the BTC equally? is my idea gonna be that hard? ???

giving the bet to an escrow is a good idea that is if there's only a few participants and only 1 person is allowed to bet on 1 candidate, so that who ever wins escrow can send the BTC to the winner and no need to calculate or divide is there are more than 1 winner

I think we can't done this if the number of participants on betting is max to the number of candidates you will bet.
that means first come first serve on the one you will want to bet.  ??? that is very difficult! I guess?

You can wait for the final round, when there is only two candidates that are still competing from the presidency. This way you all 1/2 chance of wining. 50% is still winnable if you are lucky.

There are a few websites which let you do this ,I could think of right now is www.paddypower.com or www.skybet.com Basically they're usual betting websites but during elections they tend to accept bets on candidates .

That's not really a problem. If they bet for both they won't win a lot of money or even lose some of there is a lot of people in the winning side.

Man, there are so many boring things to bet on now. Elections, weather, reality TV show winners etc. I prefer to stick to casino based games & sports.

I suppose the bookies will offer anything if there is a niche for it though.

Almost all bookmakers offer this election betting service. Odds are quite low, due to the fact that election results are the most predictable ones.

I hope there will be betting site that has Philippine elections to play with cuz its really easy to know who will be the winners of the elections here on our country ;D (fellow countrymen know what I mean ;) )

P.S. Presidential elections here will be starting on May 2016 , I would definitely bet all my bitcoins if there will be a betting site with PH elections ;D

Betting on Elections candidates is quite easy. People can easily know what candidates who competent enough to win.
And by the way i'm never bet on that things.
If i choose to support any candidates, then i prefer to give contribution to them. Not by making bet.

There are a lot places to do betting; horse racing, sports, or casino games.

Mayne quite a new idea, but well my one vote won't even make a difference. And I don't think anyone would wait months for election to happen and double/triple their bet while they can do it on a single click on a dice site.

Post by: electronicfactura on October 14, 2015, 03:16:08 PM
Directbet offers this kind of betting but it is too early to place bet on any candidate.There is still one years and still candidates are struggling to be nominated by their parties.I would also place bet once the situation is more clear.

I don't think it's easy at all and usually the same rule of betting applies there too, if the contender is favorite to win, like Djokovic is favorite to win a grand slam then the odds you get on it are quite low and you'd have to bet a lot more to make anything which in itself is a risk because a minor shift of votes and you risk losing a lot of money.

DB has it but if you don't see a particular event OP then ask them, they add the events if they can and/or if there is much demand for it.

There is really easy elections to predict. A city election can be easy to predict. Some win with like 70% of votes. Just perform a census or look at one that have been done by someone else.

Predictions can be easily done by anyone, even if you conduct a survey or census you will never know the probability of a winning candidate until the election is over, that is why it is good to have an election betting for this !

If you follow the debates and check some surveys you can easily predict the outcome especially if someone has a strong lead. Such strong leads happen very often.
Election gambling seems to be much safer than sport matches for instance.

Yeah, i just do not like to bet in elections. :)
Just my own personal decision.

Some people will try to bet on their favorite candidate,
and some people just randomly bet on candidate in the other country.
Well, is just bet for gambling.

They are having the federal election here in Canada on Monday and it looks pretty tough to call.
So does the USA but it will look clearer closer to the ballot down there. It always does.
The Canadian election is tougher. We can get minority "wins" up here because our house works differently.
Some bookies will give odds. I would say they're pretty close (Tory and Liberals) with better odds on a Tory minority.
 I'd like to see the odds. I might wager on that.

you see, this kind of wagering depends on having a bookmaker who would provide odds on the various outcomes. like a proper bookmaker would. remember Jimmy The Greek? He'd give odds on anything.

I'm not good enough to provide odds, but I would guess the Tories are going to take a minority rule.

we vote for members of parliament here, so theoretically you should be able to place bets for win place and show at each riding.

too complicated for me to figure, but I would love to peruse a betting sheet for this race. Its going to be tight.

Yes it is true. In some cases we can tell the surely who will win the election. It is based my home town and not in USA. One guy who is winning for quite long time and he has become 75 year plus but not still contesting the election and still winning. So in these kind situation it is very easy to predict the winner.

Yes betting on elections would be more interesting but it would be more easy only with home country elections as we need to gather more knowledge on other country politics to make our predictions profitable. I'm very much new to election betting will search for better sites for making my political knowledge into profits.

https://directbet.eu/Events.cshtml?EventType=Politics

if its not currently available, i guess you can ask DB if they can add it or probably it will be available when the time for the election is near

After 10 days we will have an election. I guess bets are to risky for everything in Turkey, so bet sites do not risk any odds for our elections. :D

Regulations of gambling has many jurisdictions, local as well as national, either ban gambling or heavily control it by licensing. Such regulation generally leads to gambling tourism and illegal gambling in the areas where it is not allowed. The involvement of governments, through regulation and taxation, has led to a close connection between many governments and gaming organizations.

yep a gambler can think of almost anything to place his bet for a chance to win, like "guess what will be the initial of the username of the next to post after this"  ;D

But going back on the betting on elections, one tool that can help who will win elections is by looking at the surveys conducted or commissioned by a non partisan group.

Betting on election is a good idea but its little difficult to predict the result. You should have adequate knowledge regarding the current situation and the inside politics and mindset of the people. Its little risky and there are chances to loose the money but I am not sure whether it will be popular or not.

There are certain times churches doesn't question where did you get the money you donate to them, well donating is good and I think gamblers that donates to churches are modern robin hoods that getting money from the rich and gives to the poor.

If you want to bet on elections then you can try William Hill. But I think that William Hill doesn't accept bitcoin but it does accept neteller. So all you have to do is to load your neteller account with bitcoin and then bet with your neteller account on William Hill.

Yes. Betting on elections is a new thing, I could not find any supportive suggestions for our odds to make on. With a new type gambling, this is a common situations. We must need a in depth knowledge on each candidates and political party in much needed to make our bets profitable.

Speaking of a betting on elections place we do need a thread to have people post bets they create to have others bet on, a user thread but besides bitbets and betmoose not sure what else would be user created.

Elections Sporting Events etc tend to be covered by the big sites, but miscellaneous small bets like Casualties in the Iraq War which can be referred to from iraqbodycount, the number of named storms in a hurricane season from NOAA, the closing price of Nasdaq on a certain day etc. Andbitcoin related events should be bet on and be made more aware of.

that is great and i think i saw betting on elections somewhere i think it was directbet or am i wrong.?
Betmoose has them can customize and create any bet you want as long as people feel like like joining got some for Republican candidates etc.

If I'm not wrong all exit poll results are not correct and many times these exit poll results will not predict the correct results but some time it will give us any hint who may win the election but at the end it may go wrong. Because they chose few people to get their opinion but they don't know what other people are thinking so it is just a guessing game results only.

The problem with most elections is that its very easy to tell who will win. So the odds of the winner are great and the payout is low. Sometimes its better betting on someone who you don't think is going to win and you have a great risk reward ratio.

Are you talking about exit poll results? if yes the that is correct. They can't predict always correct so if you bet some small amount on opposite side of exit poll results then you may get bigger profits if they win because exit pole result will not be always correct so you still have a chance to make bigger profits. It is same like sports betting but need to wait for long time to see the results and also not happens quire frequent.

It depends it's not yet set up because the Primaries need to bet on first, unless you meant the primary winner.
Once they decide the candidate who will run for the Democrats then their will be bets on the US president between the Republican candidate and democrat one.

There are a lot of elections in the world
Limiting it to the US would be no fun some interesting elections such as Greek and Latin American elections, Japan has one upcoming last I recall and that will involve TPP deals.
Either way your right it would be fun to try a bunch of different ones.

Sounds easy enough just pick someone with relations to the powers that be aka nepotism
Put the Aquinos and Marcos on the top of the list
Then filter through https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_political_families_in_the_Philippines
Bingo got 5 :D

yep, sounds easy but last Presidential elections the current Vice President is not the peoples choice and behind on surveys, but when election results we're out, he became the Vice President. This only shows surveys conducted before elections are not really reliable because probably they we're paid to condition the mind of people of who to vote. Anyway as the saying goes, it ain't over till the fat lady sings  ;D

Haha if you know who's gonna win where is the fun in there? and not all surveys are accurate, when a surveys says that Poe is the highest possible candidate to win, then just like you said, you will never know until it is over because the binay's are giving let's say under the table for anyone who's gonna vote him that is when the table turns right?

How many people here want Trump to win?  I always find it so funny people get so upset about politics and they know they have the right answer.  How the heck do you know you have the right answer when you don't even have any idea who the person is you are voting for.

It will make little difference if Trump wins or not. The US national debt level will keep on rising, wealth will be distorted to rich people. If Trump supports bitcoin, then I want him to win.

Trump doesn't look to me like a guy who will support Bitcoin. IMO Hillary will support it not beacause shes so smart but because she has smart advisers around. We'll see though. But I think Hillary will win anyway.

My point is, you have no idea who donald trump is, you have no idea who Obama is.  We all make such a huge deal out of this and we literally have no idea who they are.

I sort of do just because I am a bit dissatisfied with the establishment in the United States and think this type of shakeup has less impact than people think, a President needs the power of his party else he would be a near independent in practice and that type of conflict would be good for the government.

Resiliency in action it would be ambitious to say the least to have three powers in Congress, a Republican/Independent president a Republican Senate and Democratic House they may be able to make decisions because they know that it's already a mess and can blame trump lol.

I don't think anyone here would be the kind to support Donald Trump. He caters to the average American, the "John Q Public", if you will. Either way, he doesn't have enough influence to make it very far in primaries. Anyone who isn't voting for Trump right now will vote for him when their candidate drops out.

And in relation to Bitcoin, I would imagine a lot of people here support Rand Paul. As far as Bitcoin acceptance goes, he has been the most supportive of Bitcoin. He even accepts Bitcoin donations for his campaign.

Umm.. It's possible to bet on elections e.g. "Great Britain, Next British Prime Minister" ; "Great Britain, Result of United Kingdom referendum on European Union Membership " ; "Europe, Greece to exit the Eurozone before 2015 December 31" and more like that through tonybet.com just it's not with BTC. And this website is not local or something :)

If your country is not in the list you can requesting it in the election manager asking for registration for your country to election betting...
Some sites accepting other country...

Hillary won't even get the democratic ticket to run IMO... I have a strange feeling it's going to be between Trump and Sanders, which will be the BIGGEST division in the political spectrum for any Presidential election in US history.  Not to mention that we've never seen a true socialist running that has a lot of support from the younger voting group.

If there is cheat, then it is difficult to predict who will win. But on the other hand, you may bet on the richer candidate to win.

That is the basic thing to do in a cheating country. Rich people always win because they can control everything.
