Which B.C. hospital will welcome the first baby of 2021?
PlayNow.com is taking your bets.
Royal Columbian Hospital in New Westminster was home to the first baby of the year in both 2019 and 2020, but will it hold its title in 2021?
According to BCLC, the odds-on favourites are B.C. Women’s Hospital, home to the first B.C. baby born in 2017, and Surrey Memorial Hospital, after holding the title for first B.C. baby of 2018 only nine seconds into the New Year. Both are giving 4/1 odds.
Although the Lower Mainland homes most betting favourites, a hospital elsewhere could swoop in.
PlayNow.com says Fort St. John Hospital (41.00), Penticton Regional Hospital (46.00) and Cowichan District Hospital (51.00) all have big payout potential.
Kelowna General Hospital (21.00), Vernon Jubilee (46.00) and Royal Inland Hospital in Kamloops (26.00) are all also available for betting.
