Gibraltar fire hits online gambling...

According to the BBC, an explosion and fire on Gibraltar disrupted a number of online betting operations on Sunday.

Online gambling is an important part of Gibraltar's economy with international companies choosing to base themselves there because of the territory's low taxes. The outage meant many people were unable to play bets online on a busy Easter Sunday of sport.

Given these unprecedented times it is perhaps understandable that even betting organisations were unable to calculate the odds of it happening this weekend....

i.e. according to William Hill, "It's just one of those freak events nobody could have predicted".
