Vote Now!!! 5 Reasons to Go Green, Red, and Blue at the Casino

Ballot box with national flag on background - United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland

It’s the big gamble. On May 7, we all head to the polling booths to bet on what we hope will be a winning team for the UK. It’s a national punt and the consequences could (literally) cost us all more than any night at a casino.

Taxes, welfare, the NHS: they all hang in the financial balance. Their fate can change with the roll of the electoral dice. Who are you putting your money on? Are you betting blue, red, yellow, or green?

Here are 5 reasons why everyone should enjoy their free bet and spin the roulette wheel of democracy this May.

#1. Recycled Roulette – Gambling on Green

The Green Party’s only real beef with the betting industry appears to be its objection to the ‘blight of bookies’ on the high street. Not a problem, if you love playing at an online casino.

Green Party voters should be encouraged by the fact that online casinos leave no physical waste and have a very small carbon footprint. There’s no need to hop on a plane to Las Vegas to enjoy a game of blackjack.

#2. Betting on Blue – Tories at the Tables

Ever since Italian immigrant Franco Bianco opened the gaming club White’s in central London, in 1693, Tories have been enjoying a punt. In fact, the casino/club was the unofficial headquarters of the Tory party from 1783.

David Cameron and his crew will get behind any money-making venture and the party has the support of several online and offline gaming companies. You can safely bet most conservatives love casinos.

#3. Would You Bet on Red Ed?

It was Tony Blair and the Labour Party that paved the way for online gaming and online casinos, when the 2005 Gambling Act was passed. The new law allowed gaming companies to advertise on the television in the UK.

These days, late night television is dominated by online gaming advertising and sponsorship. Although Labour is examining high stake fixed odds betting terminals, online casinos are safe in the hands of Mr. Milliband. It remains safe to bet on red.

#4. Clegg and the Casino

Although the Liberal Democrats are also backing the campaign to scrap fixed odds betting machines, the party has accepted money from the online gaming sector and has no anti-gambling agenda.

It’s safe to say that a night at the roulette table with the Liberal Democrats would be probably be spent betting on either odd/even or red/black bets, with the party unable to commit to a single number. Another very safe bet.

#5. All In with Farage – or All Out!

Let’s face it: If Nigel isn’t down the pub with a pint and a fag on the go, the chances are he’s probably living it up, playing blackjack, at the nearest casino. As a former city trader, he knows how to gamble.

Farage famously said he considers himself the perfect man to play James Bond. Clearly, he has an appetite for baccarat, as well as exotic women and dry martinis. UKIP are a safe bet – as long as it’s a British casino for British gamblers.

    There are so many directions this could go! It’s going to be extremely interesting to see what happens next. In the Tony Blair tradition, though, my bet is on RED!
