Bookmakers will let you bet on anything really and now they are turning to Videogames with Victor Chandler offering odds on the BAFTA GAME Awards, which take place on the 19th March.
The title currently favourite for the GAME award, which is the only one voted for by members of the public, is Uncharted 2 with odds of 6/4, followed closely by Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 at 9/4.
“Uncharted 2 is a very strong favourite at 6/4 and we’ve already taken numerous four figure bets on it. For those looking for an outside bet we have seen support for FIFA 10 at 33/1. It’s always tricky offering odds on a public vote so we’ll be keeping a close eye on the money rolling in,” said Victor Chandler MD Peter Laverick to GamesIndustry.biz.
“We’ve already seen huge interest from all over the world in this year’s award with people campaigning online for their favourite title,” added Neil Ashurst of GAME.
“As the deadline looms closer, I would urge all gamers to cast their vote at baftagameaward.com and make sure their voice is heard.”
