Last week, Sky Bet, a well-known online betting platform offered a unique betting opportunity to its customers in which bettors were encouraged to place bets on the soon to be released iPad. Bettors placed bets on the features of the Apple tablet, which has been scheduled for release on March 16th. Bets were placed through Sky Bet’s mobile app and the online site. Debates sparked among speculators over the possibility of a few features that will be included in the new iPad.

Bets Placed on iPad Name and Features

Sky Bet customers placed bets on what the name of the new iPad is likely to be. Bets were also placed on hardware specifications, special features and the size of the tablet. Individual bets were kept low due to the possibility of a few bettors having internal information about the tablet. A large number of high stake bets were placed from across the world after which Sky Bet stopped accepting bets.

A Sky Bet representative stated that this is the first time that the site offered a betting opportunity on the features of a gadget. It created great enthusiasm in the betting market. The Sky Bet representative added that the bettors who win will surely visit Apple showrooms once the tablet is launched.

Predictions on the New Tablet  

Speculators predicted the name of the new tablet to be iPad 2s. What was shocking for the Sky Bet team is that, some predicted that the iPad will have a storage capacity of less than 128GB.
