The Eurovision Song Contest first appeared on our screens in 1956 and has been an annual event ever since, rising from a paltry seven countries participating to up to twenty five in recent times. The European Broadcasting Union (EBU) is the body responsible for governing the event and whilst it has never been regarded with any seriousness in the UK, it draws one of the biggest global TV audiences. Viewing figures have ranged from 100 - 600 million in recent years with broadcasting rights bought outside europe in such far flung places as Argentina, New Zealand, South Korea and Taiwan.
With so many countries taking part in the contest betting on the Eurovision Song Contest is obviously big business, with an estimated €300 million expected to be bet on this year's competition over the internet. The most popular bet is on which country will win and the favourites vary greatly year on year. The United Kingdom was, for example, consistently placed in the top ten but in recent years the former Eastern Bloc countries have become increasingly popular and often head the betting as Eurovision favourites. Whichever way you choose to place your Eurovision bet, be sure to check out the Eurovision free bet guide to see what offers are available.
New Voting Policy Improves Chance Of Picking The Winner
For anyone aspiring to determine who will win Eurovision there has always been great concern about the tactical voting that appears to go on as a result of countries supporting their economic and political allies. To combat the negative press reports of previous Eurovision contests concerning the block voting of the former Eastern European countries in particular it has been agreed that juries will make a comeback to the contest. A panel from each country will now be voting alongside the public at home. The executive supervisor of Eurovision, Svante Stockelius said: "Nothing is more democratic than the vote of the public. But a jury takes the opportunity to listen to the songs several times before they make up their minds. We believe a combination will make the show more interesting" .
