Yekaterinburg bookmakers do not make stakes on city winning EXPO

November 28, 2013. Yekaterinburg bookmakers did not prove interested in the city competing for the right to host the World Exhibition EXPO 2020. Today is the day when the hosting city for the event in 2020 will be announced in Paris, and no stakes can be made on Yekaterinburg winning or losing. This might have to do with the fact that the locals are not very interested in the exhibition themselves.

One of the local bookmakers said Yekaterinburg residents used to be offered to make their stakes on important social or political events, but people expressed no interest whatsoever. This is why the local bookmakers keep concentrating primarily on sports.

In a number of other countries, people often make stakes on the interesting events happening in their country. This year, for example, the English could make stakes on whether the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge William and Catherine are going to have a boy or a girl. Americans also like making stakes on Groundhog’s Day when you can stake on whether the hedgehog is going to see its shadow or not.
