    Hi, trying to place a double on a League of Ireland match tonight and the outright winner of Britains Got Talent, but on the PP App I can't select it as a double - only two singles.

    Any ideas??

    It's straight forward really. They don't allow doubles between them markets.

    Cheers, thanks for that. Thought that might have been it. That's €5 less for PP. :)

    How do you reckon you can't do both of them in a double?
    They are not related?

    Novelty bets cannot be doubled with sports bets, I believe.

    Yeah just tried it, singles only.
    Would have thought you could have doubled something like BGT with a football match, obviously not.

    Novelty markets are deemed more volatile, so I think they're making it easier to manage risk of them if it's limited to singles only.
    It can seem silly enough, and you could put forward a good counter argument in particular circumstances, but they probably just find it handier to enforce one rule for all novelty markets

    Been having a similar problem on the PP website. Tried to do a Arsenal win, Giroud to score anytime double but it only offers singles.

    Those bets should be related, shouldn't they?

    Go to the Scorecast/Wincast section and you can do it there. It won't work if you select the two separate bets.
