Demonstrations in the Arab world’s most populated nation continued for a [ninth] straight day with calls for Mubarak to step down.
Odds on Mubarak resigning were set at even odds.
Good news for the people of Egypt, odds were set at -130 on Mubarak not just stepping down but ultimately leaving the country.
His failure to resign had odds of +130, paying $13 for every $10 bet. Of the three options, this was the least likely according to the oddsmakers, though it is hardly a “lock”.
