Gamblers across the world are waiting as wagering websites refuse to call the presidential election in President-elect Joe Biden’s favor, despite news outlets doing so.
This year’s election was an unprecedented event in the world of betting, with more people than ever shelling out funds. While political gambling is technically illegal in the United States, Britain-based wagering website Betfair reportedly has more than $600 million tied up pending President Trump’s myriad lawsuits and legal maneuvering in key battleground states.
“We still have not graded a winner,” Adam Burns, sportsbook manager of BetOnline, told the New York Post.
No state has yet officially certified its results for the presidential election, and Trump’s reelection campaign has worked overtime to barnstorm both state and federal courts with litigation in a last-ditch effort to achieve victory.
