Taking A Gamble On The End Of The World

MONTREAL (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – The odds of June 6 – aka 6/6/06 – being doomsday are slim but that hasn’t stopped several hundred people from taking a gamble on the earth’s demise.

In fact, the web-based casino is allowing fear- mongering gamblers to wager between $5 and $500 on whether the world will end tomorrow (Jun. 6). spokesman Matt Ross says the odds that the world will end are a 10,000 to 1 longshot but at least 10 percent of the wagers being placed are for the world’s demise.

Sure, it’s a crapshoot in more ways than one because if the world does go kaput, Ross admits he’s not sure how the winners will collect their earnings.

Says Ross: “I’ve had people ask me if it counts if just one country is demolished but I told them they only win if the entire world disappears.”
