Royal baby betting exceeds £1 million

Royal baby betting exceeds £1 million | "Chasing Cyborgs" -Digital Trends, Tools, Usability & Story-telling Secrets | Scoop.it
Bookmakers across the U.K. are still cashing in on the gambling frenzy that's been sparked by the birth of the royal baby.
Juliana Loh's insight:

We are 'gamers' no matter what. So it comes with no surprise that the 'experience' of Kate and William's birth of their new son invited the perfect opportunity for the world to partake in an age-old ritual - *gambling*.

 

How does this fit into story-telling? Betting raises the stakes, the interest in the actual climax which of course came last night to the cries of "It's a boy"! To many, the announcement arrived with a simple celebratory 'hooray', but to a whole lot of dealers & betters.. it was truly a moment to be shared *globally*. Afterall, you couldn't really go wrong with 50/50 odds!

 

Does 'gaming' bring us together ... you bet!!! Next 'game' up? Baby names of course! :D
