Is Big Brother being fixed in Great Britain? And are the alleged fixers using BetFair to make a fast buck (or quid, as they say in the U.K.)?
Via Ed, The Daily Mail:
The Daily Star reveals that some punters are set to earn more than half a million pounds after a total bet of ?971 was staked via BetFair on Nikki to win at 1000-1 shortly after she was voted out of the house. […]
Rumours of ‘-insider dealing’- on BetFair chat forums continue to surround the clued up gamblers who stand to win ?582,250. […]
That “-Nikki”- was evicted, an later on re-instated in the game.
Hence, the questions about the traders who did bet on her, after her eviction. Did they “-know”- something that the other traders didn’-t?
On the other hand, it’-s a constitutional right for Joe A. Doe to bet ?971 on a loser. Many do that every day at the horse race track. We should not accuse people of insider trading (or corruption) without any evidence.
BetFair employs many specialists in their “-integrity team”- to deal with such occurrences.
