Why Are Betting Shops Called Bookmakers. When Did The First Betting Shop Open.?

Legally, in UK, 1961, although I used to go in one before that time. However you were always at risk of being raided by the police. They are called bookmakers because they „make a book”, which is merely a list of bets taken on each horse or other possible outcome of an event. The idea is to fix odds so that each possible outcome of an event will be attractive to some punters in sufficient proportion so as to eliminate the risk to the odds layer. Typically for every ?105 to say ?145 taken he would pay out ?100 – in theory. On the 2008 Grand National the figure was ?144. The same risk aversion strategy is practised by investors on stock markets.
