White Christmas would be quite brrrrrilliant for punters!
William Hill have started to see a flurry of activity on their favourite festive flutter. With the winter's first snow forecast this week, punters have been keen to get their bets on before the odds are slashed and Hills have seen an increase of 30% in the last 24 hours. Aberdeen is the 3/1 favourite to see snow, with Edinburgh, Glasgow and Belfast all priced at 4/1. Dublin is 5/1 with London, amongst many others, 6/1.
"It is a British tradition to obsess about the weather and in the last 24 hours we have started to see our meteorological punters put their money where their mouth is," said Hill's spokesman Joe Crilly.
