Make a Novelty Bet at InTrade.com

Novelty betting, or the act of betting on the outcome or likelihood of a future, non-sports-related event, is becoming increasingly popular in the world of online gambling. Not everyone is interested in sports or has the knowledge to make educated bets. For people who are more interested in the outcome of politics, award shows, or reality TV there are sites like InTrade.com.

Intrade is an online trading exchange website that allows users to bet on just about anything. Think you know where the first hurricane of the 2010 season will make landfall?  How much money a particular movie will gross? When Osama Bin Land will be caught or whether or not California will legalize marijuana? Put some money on it! With 14 categories ranging from Current Events to Business to Climate and Weather, everyone can find something to gamble on. If you don’t want to risk money, sister site InTrade.net allows users to play just for fun as well as create their own betting markets.

If InTrade doesn't do it for you, head over the other novelty betting sites we've profiled: Stiffs.com or Longbets.org. It's just money, right?
