Loto-Quebec taking bets on Trump presidency

Bets on the outcome of a Donald Trump presidency are officially open in Quebec.

Loto-Quebec says betting will open until October 1st for players on its Mise-o-jeu platform to wager on the following question: ``Will Donald Trump still be president of the United States after May 1st, 2018?''

The provincial Crown corporation's current odds are that it's three-and-a-half times more likely Trump will still be in office by then.

Bettors who put a buck on Trump's departure would receive $3.65, compared to $1.10 for those who wager he will stay.
