When Americans went to the polls in November 2020, their northern neighbors were just as interested in the outcome.

Many Canadians were probably most concerned about the political leadership of the United States. It is their country’s largest trading partner and the nearby owner of a massive nuclear arsenal.

However, not everyone’s interests were geopolitical. While the vote-counting process continued, at least some Canadians kept a close eye on the results. It is because they had money riding on the outcome.

According to a spokesperson for PlayNow.com, the 2020 U.S. election was the “single-most popular betting event” in the company’s history. The British Columbia Lottery Corp.-owned and operated website has offered certain novelty bets since 2014 and has taken around $3 million in election-related wagers from the province’s bettors, according to BCLC’s Matt Lee in an email.
