Billionaire Pledge

 

Bookmaker.com’s “Billionaire Pledge” betting odds have caught the eyes of Forbes.com, the magazine known for publishing a yearly list of billionaires. 

The online gambling site this past week began offering odds on which billionaire would join Bill Gates, Warren Buffett and other Forbes 400 billionaires in pledging half their fortune to charitable causes (see odds here under ENTERTAINMENT).

According to a spokesperson for the gambling website, the bookies “calculated these odds by analyzing media reports and expert opinions being published lately on the topic.”

Gambling911.com posted the odds over the weekend and had hedge funder John Paulson, financier Carl Icahn and philanthropist George Soros each among the favorites, however, Bookmaker.com offers many other names to bet on, some with much longer odds (but more lucrative payout potential).
