Sky Bet Pulls iPad 3 Betting After "Chunky" Bets on Tech Specs

By Gary Cutlack on at

Sky Bet was pretty confident that no one had any idea what Apple's alleged iPad 3 would be like. Until floods of bets convinced it otherwise, so betting was suspended.

It was quite a silly thing to do anyway. With numerous leaks out there regarding what Apple will, won't, could and should announce at its next press event, the idea of opening a book to let people bet on the eventual tech specs of Apple's next iPad was surely a publicity stunt too far.

And it was, with Sky Bet stopping taking wagers on the iPad 3's spec sheet after receiving "a flood of money including a string of very chunky three-figure bets" on the hardware configuration punters expect Apple to present in its latest tablet. [Techradar]
