What is the Eurovision Song Contest?

The Eurovision Song Contest has been running since 1956, which means it has been going strong for a massive 64 years in 2019. It’s a prestigious event, where countries go head-to-head with only one song entry each, and the winning country gets the iconic glass microphone and the honour of hosting the following year’s event. Although admission is not exclusive to European countries, the competition is undoubtedly dominated by them. In previous years the UK has, by and large, done just dreadfully. Often meaning patriotism is left at the door for Brits who bet on the Eurovision song contest – and trust us there’s plenty of you. A great benefit of this means you get to be more strategic in how you bet. By picking from the favourite to win instead of blindly pledging allegiance, but you’ll also need to do some research to ensure it is a well-placed bet. Keep in mind also that it can be a bit of a popularity contest, as it’s up to the guest and national juries to vote for their favourite.
