IR­ISH BOOK­MAKER PAYS OUT EARLY ON CLIN­TON WIN

The Sun (Malaysia) - - NEWS WITHOUT BORDERS -

LON­DON: Ir­ish book­maker Paddy Power said on Tues­day it had paid out early to cus­tomers who backed Hil­lary Clin­ton to win the US elec­tion, say­ing it’s a “done deal”. With less than three weeks to the vote, the firm paid out £800,000 (RM4.1 mil­lion) to those who put their money be­hind the Demo­crat, af­ter the odds of a win for Re­pub­li­can ri­val Don­ald Trump plunged. The book­ies said they had seen a flood of money on Clin­ton over the past week fol­low­ing Trump’s lewd com­ments about women and ac­cu­sa­tions against him of sex­ual as­sault. – AFP
