Astronomical bets on Star Wars

Online betting has a new fascination – with that of the new Star Wars movie coming up soon.

After Disney acquired the legendary George Lucas Star Wars film franchise rights, the sci-fi spectacle has been on many minds. With the next installment, Star Wars Episode 7, to begin filming in England soon, British online betting has begun to bet on which actors and actresses will star in the new film.

One place seeing much betting activity in particular is UK online betting giant William Hill casino. The mostly hotly contested bet? Who will play protagonist Luke Skywalker, of course. Most are betting in favor of young American actors Zac Effron, Shia LaBeouf and Topher Grace.
