Paddy Power is celebrating the New Year with a new series of novelty bets.
While online sport betting continues to provide the most revenue for online betting sites, novelty bets are growing in number as sites such as Paddy Power find these bets being hit on more often.
Novelty bets include just about anything that you can think of. Politics is one of the most popular types of bets, especially when you are talking about UK politics.
But, you can find bets on the weather, celebrities, TV shows, new movies or just about anything else.
Paddy Power is bringing in the New Year of 2011 with a fun series of "Firsts in 2011" bets. The topics of these bets vary greatly, but the theme of "first in 2011" runs through them.
Some of the bets that you can place in this series include first band to officially split in 2011, first celebrity hair transplant, first World Leader to leave in 2011, most orange fake tan in 2011, top grossing film and first celebrity drug bust in 2011.
You can choose the most popular Irish boys' name of 2011 or predict the country to have the biggest rise in GDP in 2011.
If you are looking for massive odds that will pay you out handsomely, you have come to the right section of Paddy Power betting.
Just visit the 11/11/11 betting odds and if you win, you could win big.
If extraterrestrial life is confirmed, you will be paid out at 100/1 odds. If the World ends, you will be paid out at 500/1. Though, it is questionable if you will be around to collect on that one.
