Spain to win and David Villa Top Scorer settlement
With five goals each, four players including David Villa tied as top goalscorer in the World Cup so we had to settle that market as a four-way dead-heat. This has led to some confusion as to how to settle the Top Goalscorer/Tournament winner market.
It didn’t seem fair to enforce the dead-heat rule because many of the bets on Villa/Spain would have actually resulted in customers’ bets being a shorter price than Spain were to just win the tournament at the time.
So we’ve taken the decision to settle the market according to table below which results in every bet returning higher winnings.
If you placed £10 on Villa/Spain at 18/1 your settlement with this method will be £70.Enforcing a 4-way dead heat rule (Your stake is divided by the total number of players tied and then paid at the full odds), your bet would have been settled as £47.50.
Here is the table explaining how we will settle your bet but please accept our apologies as this is being completed manually and should be done by the end of today.
