Game of Thrones Sportsbook

Sports betting is now legal in nine states. Many people enjoy gambling on sports, whether or not it’s legal. Experts estimate the sports gaming industry pulls in around $150 billion a year all over the country. While many people enjoy betting on large events, such as March Madness and the Super Bowl, others enjoy prop bets.

One very popular prop bet is on the outcome of a show or a series finale. Now, there is a sportsbook to predict the events in the hit show “Game of Thrones.”

“Game of Thrones” has been running on HBO for eight seasons. The eighth (and final) season began earlier this month after almost two years. Nearly 18 million people watched Episode 1 of Season Eight on the channel or via its streaming network.

Based on a book series of the same name, “Game of Thrones” tells three different stories. The first story arc is about the battle for the Iron Throne and leadership of Westeros. The second story arc is about the coming of age of the last descendant of a ruling family, the Starks. The final story details the defenders of the realms of Westeros and Essos. The defenders try and keep the countries safe from the wild North.

The final season has four episodes, each lasting about two hours. There is an enormous amount of publicity generated by the return of the show and its upcoming finale. This means millions of people care about how it will end.

Prop bets or proposition bets are bets that are not on a team or a sport. Instead, they can be about anything that is going to generate interest. People have placed prop bets on elections, on the Academy Awards, even on the length of a celebrity’s marriage. Depending on the odds, proposition bets have the potential to pay off big. One man placed a prop bet in 2015 that Donald Trump would win the 2016 election. He won hundreds of thousands of dollars.

Some sportsbook scoff at prop bets. Others, however, use prop bets as a way to lure gamers to their other sportsbook offerings. Experts estimate that between 15 percent and 20 percent of all sportsbook bets are prop bets.
