B.C. Bettors Getting In On Game of Thrones Action on PlayNow.com

After seven seasons, winter has come. PlayNow.com is offering B.C. bettors and devout fans of HBO’s Game of Thrones the chance to bet on who will rule Westeros – and many other storyline outcomes of the hit series’ Season 8.

When it comes to who will rule Westeros following the conclusion of Season 8, Bran Stark is the betting favourite (5/4). However, Jon Snow/Aegon Targaryen (11/5), Daenerys Targaryen (21/5), or a potential child of the two (19/5), are all in the mix. So, too, is Sansa Stark (23/4), Gendry (7/1), and Tyrion Lannister (15/2).

While Cleganes aren’t easy to kill, bettors can also wager on who will die first: The Hound (6/5) or The Mountain (29/50). Other popular betting categories include which characters will become a white walker, and which characters will die during Season 8. With all the plot twists and turns of Game of Thrones, it’s anyone’s guess as to how the show will end.

In addition, PlayNow.com’s Game of Thrones Season 8 – Guaranteed Pick 16 pool offers fun for the whole season. Players pick the result for 16 different markets within the pool (i.e. Jon/Daenerys to rule Westeros at the end, or anyone else). The ticket(s) with the most correct picks will win or share the prize pool, with a guaranteed $1,000 prize. Entries are $5 each.
