A northern-hemisphere betting plunge on the Duke and Duchess of York having twins has now gone worldwide, with Aussie bookie suspending its market this morning after a high-volume of wagers.

Sportingbet was still offering odds of $21 this morning for Prince William and Kate to have twins, twelve hours after UK bookies suspended betting following a monster gamble.

“The news of the plunge broke in the UK overnight and plenty of our alert punters took the tip and jumped on at the juicy odds,” Sportingbet’s Andrew Brown said.

“I don’t see any familiar royal names or a Buckingham Palace address in the long list of punters who have bet on twins but nevertheless,  it will be interesting to see if the plunge will be successful.”

Sportingbet’s UK parent company, William Hill, was forced to slash the odds of William and Kate having twins from 20/1 to 9/1 on Tuesday after a large spike in interest, before eventually suspending betting when the wagers kept coming.

“We have had a load of unexpected bets including a large number of new accounts – with any other market I would say that people know,” said William Hill UK spokesman Rupert Adams.

Sportingbet is still offering markets on the name of the next royal baby, and if the rumours are right, punters might have two chances of getting it right!
