Poker star Tony G has challenged Ukip leader Nigel Farage to a €1 million bet on the UK staying in the EU.
Lithuanian born Tony G – whose full name is Antanas Guoga – is so convinced Britain will vote Remain in the EU referendum on June 23, he is putting his money where his mouth is.
In an email to pro-Leave campaigner Farage, Tony outlines the terms of the bet, saying the money would go to charity.
The current odds are 2/5 remain, 13/5 leave (subject to change).
No-lose bet on Brexit
“We also intend to bet in-running during polling day during one of the biggest days in modern European history but we aren’t expecting any major swings.
“Our founder Tony G has gone on the record challenging Nigel Farage to a €1 million charity bet and saying that he would take any money in the world on Leave and the current management echo these sentiments.
“We are also willing to take £1 million worth of action on Leave risk free for punters.”
“It is well known that betting markets are seen as a better indicator of what is happening than traditional opinion polls and we forecast the odds shortening on Remain but not with a dramatic swing.
“At the weekend we saw record levels of bets on the Brexit market so let’s see how it plays out.”
