    UK - Royal twins for duchess - bets suspended, insider info?

    Daily Mail:

    Insider fears sees bookmakers suspend bets on Kate giving birth to twins after surge in wagers from new accounts

    • Hill reportedly had 200 bets in less than two hours on Monday night
    • Bookmaker has now stopped all bets while Coral has slashed its odds
    • Odds have shortened to as little as 5/2 - but are still 100/1 for Royal triplets

    Bookies have slashed the odds on Kate Middleton giving birth to Royal twins after a flood of wagers prompted fears that punters had inside knowledge.

    Betting on two new Royal babies could now pay out at as little as 5/2 while one bookmaker, William Hill, has suspended bets entirely after receiving 200 in just over an hour.

    Same thing happened the last time. Rumors, guesses, gossip, some down right mean. I can see it's going to be a long 7-8 months with this in the press.
