General Election Betting Odds

When thinking of betting on the UK General Election, the first outcome one might consider is which party will win. As we can see from 💎the bettiജng odds below, this may not take a great deal of thought for the upcoming general election.

The result of the next general election might be considered a🤪 foregone conclusion given th🥂e current odds.

Government After The Next UK General Election

Here, we can bet on which party will be in power following the public vote, and this is done by betting on who will have the overall 💯majority at the next UK General Election.

Outcome April 24 July 23 October 22 July 22
Labour Majority 1/10 1/2 4/5 4/1
No Overall Majority 9/1 3/1 11/8 4/6
Conservative Majority 33/1 12/1 5/1 15/8
Share

With some historical odds data on the market, it is ꦓclear how much stronger the labour party have become in the betting over time, going from 4/1 outsiders in this three way split, into very short 1/10 odds on favourites - By contrast, just 2 short years ago, the Conservative party has seen odds drift from 15/8 all the way out to a very unlikely 33/1 chance.

General Election Constituencies Betting

The General Election is when everyone in the UK can pick their Member of Parliament (MP). This person represents their local area or neighbourhood, called a constituency, in the House of Commons for a maximum 🌳of five years.

Several people or candidates typically want to become an MP in each area. Some of these candidates belong to n♔ational political parties. The candi🦩date with the most votes from locals becomes the MP of that area.

When will the next general election be?

We don't know the exact date of the next general election yet. However, according to the Dissolution and Callin🔜g of Parliament Act 2022, this decision is now back in the hands of the reigning monarch on the request of the Prime Minister.

Who decides when there is a general election?

Year Of UK General Election

🔮🇬🇧 2024 or 2025? Predicting the Next UK Elections! 🗳️

🏛️🔜 Uncertain times ahead for the conservatives! 🙈 Mark your calendars 📆, 2024 may bring the next vote! Or will they cling till 2025? The future awaits...🕰️

2024 is still the favourite year for the next UK General Election as the conservatives are in a position of stress at the time of writing, and any call for an early vote may put their position of powe🌠r in jeopardy. Decembe𒉰r 17th, 2024, is when the government will dissolve naturally after 5 years in power, with voting having to occur at least 25 days after that date. So, 2024 is the most likely time for the next general election. However, 2025 could also be possible if the current government hang on until the very last moment.

UK General Election Majority Betting

If you believe no majority government or either the Conservatives or Labour will gain a majority, the market is available to bet on. Each political party aims for an overall majority at a General Election. This allows them to govern more easily, as their proposals and bills in government ar🅘e more l🐎ikely to be passed with this majority. 

Some governments have had their legislation hampered by a very small or non-existent majority. For a 🍃majority, any party must get 326 seats or more.
