Are Singaporeans really interested in Euro-cup?

The Singapore Pool outlet at my place extended its opening hours till 2200 hrs in order to facilitate the placing of bets by punters on the matches of the Euro-cup.

Major soccer matches like the World Cup, the Euro-cup often draw a mix of genuinely soccer fans and the punter fraternity who are only interested in getting a dose of the thrill in rooting for their favourite teams.

Thus I wonder do the scores of Singaporeans who stay till the wee hours to watch the Euro-cups really have an interest in the games or just to find out firsthand whether their bets have won?

It may be a case of both too.
