PlayNow.com Taking Bets on Peace Arch Border Crossing Wait Times

Ready For It? In what is expected to be one of the busiest weekends for crossing the Peace Arch border – with a perfect storm of Taylor Swift and Toronto Blue Jays fans heading south for marquee events – PlayNow.com is offering the chance to bet on just how long the wait will be.

B.C. residents know All Too Well that it’s a good idea to allow extra time to head south of the border. But, with Blue Jays fans swinging for the fences to avoid a long wait as Toronto takes on the Seattle Mariners, and Swifties travelling for two back-to-back concerts, just how long will wait times be?

On PlayNow.com, British Columbians can bet on if the longest posted wait time to cross southbound at the Peace Arch border will be over or under 179.5 minutes (2 hours, 59.5 minutes) on Saturday, July 22. 

This bet is available on PlayNow.com for today only (until 11:30 p.m. Pacific time) – a successful $10 wager on the over (2.00) will pay a total of $20, and a successful bet on the under (1.71) will pay out a total of $17.10. 

As B.C.’s only 100% legal gambling website, PlayNow.com is the only site whose profits benefit British Columbians through investments in things like healthcare, education and community programs.
