You have to know what you are betting on
right i'm happy enough to leave this golden boot/top scorer thing alone, as i'd think you and everyone else is too.

but something from your last sentence, is there any more bets like the golden boot/top scorer that people should be aware of if not familiar with betting/bokies rules etc. or like the one ArmaniJeanss gave about germany & gomez @ 16/1 & the like being rip offs.

I remember a manager in a shop one time saying you couldn't do a bet like that - e.g. double on germany & gomez FGS - and had to take the other odds offered but he was the manager & gambled a good bit too so maybe he just knew.
would the system take a bet like that if the cashier didn't know otherwise?

You can bet on a lot more markets these days then you ever could before, and combine more too.

But each bookie is different

One that caught me back when I started a few weeks back just before the CL finals, and I saw a few people caught out over during the knock out stages, is that there's a difference between "X Team to Qualify/Win" and "X Team to win in 90 minutes", the later seemingly more commonly picked by mistake.

You wouldn't believe half the stuff you hear in bookmakers support... It'd nearly warrant a thread of it's own.
