The record guaranteeing interest indicates generally, ₤ 108,000 will be bet for each minute of the game, with that figure surging up fivefold throughout crunch England matches, while the number of wagering slips used laid end to end would stretch from The White Cliffs of Dover to Marseille.
Alex Donohue of Ladbrokes said: “The home nations and Ireland, beneficial begin times and the Leicester story have actually combined to form the best punting storm. We’re positive guaranteeing records will be smashed in France this summertime and if Northern Ireland deliver another footballing fairytale, we’ll be paying fortunes.”
