“The fight for second place was narrower,” Slušný added, as quoted by the SITA newswire. “Eventually, the number of bets on Štefan Harabin was higher, representing nearly 20 percent. About 11 percent believed in Maroš Šefčovič.”

The highest sum was won by a person who bet €9,999 on Čaputová winning with 37 percent of the vote or more.

“As a result, they won €17,498 with a 1.75 rate,” Slušný said, as quoted by SITA.

Another person won €16,498 by betting the same sum on Marian Kotleba.

“The fact that the turnout did not exceed 50 percent pleased another person,” Slušný added for SITA. “They won €7,120 for a bet of €4,000.”

The person, who bet €4,000 on the result that Čaputová and Šefčovič would make it to the second round, earned €5,920, according to Slušný.
