How Are Weather Bets Settled?


You've placed your daily weather bet, you've checked your thermometer and you're waiting to see if you're going to receive a dividend.

But wait, how do the bookies settle daily weather bets?

The daily weather bets are settled by the Bureau of Meteorology, who has weather stations set up in each capital city around Australia. This is how your weather bets are settled.

Below you'll find out where the weather stations are and what time your wagers will be settled:
