ST. JOHN'S, Antigua – (PRESS RELEASE)-- With the Democratic National convention in Boston having come to a close, the political race for the presidency of the United States of America is just beginning to heat up. Today jumped into the political arena by releasing updated odds on the 2004 Presidential Election, including odds on who would win the electoral votes from a number of undecided states.

A leading offshore gaming company for over 10 years, has seen a shift in U.S. Presidential betting and now lists Democratic candidate John Kerry as a slight favorite to win the election at 10/13 odds (i.e., win $10 for every $13 bet) over incumbent President George Bush who stands at even money or 1/1 odds. That represents a complete reversal in odds as recent as late June, when President Bush was a 10/13 favorite to win the election while Kerry was listed at 1/1 odds.

Knowing that the election will ultimately be decided on the outcome of a few select states, has also created unique betting options on which candidate will win each of the 22 "swing states" in November's election. The company currently lists Kerry as the favorite in 13 of the "swing states," while listing Bush as the favorite in only six of those districts with three states currently considered up for grabs. has Kerry favored to capture Delaware, Iowa, Michigan, Missouri, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Washington and Wisconsin. Meanwhile President George Bush is currently the favorite in only Arkansas, Colorado, Florida, Louisiana, Ohio and West Virginia. lists Arizona, Maine and Minnesota with equal odds for both candidates.
