A tale of three bets 4

PP: Neymar was in the top four scorers, so the 'place' part of the bet paid out.

There were five in the 'top four' so I think the bet* should be reduced by 4/5ths (number of places divided by the number of people who finished in them). Instead, they go 'there are three in the tie for third, so there's no fourth place, and so we're reducing the bet by 2/3rds'. That results in them paying out less. Odd that.

Overall, I made money with them. I'd have made more if Argentina had won overall.

It is impossible to close an account yourself via the website, but their online support has done that for me.

Coral: Sadly, neither Brazil nor Argentina won overall, so this was a total loss. Had Chile won against Brazil, based on what happened to Brazil, I'd have been laughing...

It is impossible to close an account yourself via the website, and they don't have online support. The "Always on hand to help" support phone number is closed, with no indication as to when it will be open. I have emailed them.

Overall: a small loss, but that's what makes bookmakers millions.

* Not the odds, because that would result in them paying out more. Odd that.
