New research has revealed the top 10 controversial bets that Britons would love to put their money on, including the length of Donald Trump’s presidency, what age the Queen & David Attenborough will live to, and that Kylie Jenner will release a sex tape.
New research has discovered the most controversial bets that Britons would like to bet on, if they were available, with the most popular being the length of Donald Trump’s presidency. The average length, according to those who’d like to bet on it, is expected to be just 2 years, less than the four year term he has been given. The second most wanted bet is how old the Queen will live to, with the average age according to those who’d like to place a bet being 105 years old.
The team at www.BiggestFreeBets.com conducted the research as part of an ongoing study into British attitudes towards gambling. 2,402 Britons were quizzed about the controversial subjects that they would place bets on if they were available, all of whom were aged 18 and over.
Initially, all respondents were asked ‘If you were to place a bet on anything, what would it be?’ to which the most popular topics were ‘celebrity lifestyles’ (20%), ‘politics’ (18%) and ‘celebrity deaths’ (15%); ‘sport’ (14%) came in at fourth most popular. When asked why celebrity lifestyles and deaths were so popular, respondents cited reasons such as ‘I am very interested in celebrities’ (33%) and ‘it’s easy to keep up with celebrity lifestyles’ (32%).
All respondents were then asked what controversial subjects they would place a bet on, if they were available. When provided with a list of possible responses and told to select all that applied, the top 10 most wanted risky bets were revealed as follows:
The length of Donald Trump’s presidency – 48%

The age which David Attenborough will live to – 13%

Furthermore, those who stated that they would like to bet on the length of Trump’s presidency were asked how long they guessed he’d be president for, with the average response being 2 years (exactly half of the four year term). Similarly, of those who wanted to bet on how old the Queen would live to be, the average age predicted was 105 years old.
According to the poll, when asked how much they would consider spending on these bets, individually, the average response was revealed as £23.50. 72% admitted they would because they felt some of these bets, if not all, were sure to come through for them.

We’re sure, if it were to be an option, many people all around the world would love to place bets on how long Trump will hold the Presidency.”
