Las Vegas may be the gambling capital of the world, but other places offer even more opportunities to contemplate the odds and lay your money down. In the United Kingdom, they’ll bet on anything, from the gender of the next royal baby to whether there will be a white Christmas in Winnipeg to the actor playing Doctor Who’s next companion. One can also wager on who’ll be the next president of the United States. We checked in with U.K. oddsmaker William Hill to see what the frontrunners’ chances are.
