If punters mixed up the UEFA Golden Boot with Top Goalscorer then that's their problem, not the bookies

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.
