    that's what i think,anyway i'll find out today,he doesn't bet much so i'd say he'll be outside pp at about 10 bells.

    Unlikely as all Irish Shops must close at 6pm on Sunday.

    Why bother? He probably placed the bet before 6PM. Just worded incorrectly (for you) by the OP.

    Also I don't think it was in the shop as the only scorer specials they had up when I was in there at 5.50pm was Ballotelli & Villa 1st goal double at 40's.

    That's very strange.
    I backed the same special in a PP shop on the Saturday night (was collecting a bet from that afternoon :o) but it was at 66/1!.
    I went in on Sunday as one of the lads in the pub also wanted to back it so I said I'd put it on for him.
    The girl told me they had taken it down but she didn't know why.
    I happened to see this thread and went back into the shop and asked why it was 125/1 when I only got 66/1?
    I wasn't sure if I was going to get paid or not but if I was I wanted to
    make sure if it was, it would be at 125/1 (less the non runner) and not at 66/1.
    She told me it deffo wasn't up in the shop on the Sunday.
    After a long "conversation", she rang HQ and they eventually told her the 125/1 was a non shop offer so if someone did get it on in a shop at that price, fair dues.
    It's a bit strange it was nearly double the price for the same bet though :mad:.
    Wasn't a happy bunny but also only got me money back.

    They should pay out on the remaining selections:

    thats utter nonsense to void stake.

    If you backed a double on two horses and one doesnt run, it reverts to an sp single on the other horse


    Total garbage if they void it instead of paying out on remaining selections and I'm 100% sure other bookies would pay out

    How can the justify voiding it?
    Work it out on the anytime prices each player was and make it an acca


  • Site Banned Posts: 880 whiteshorts


    That's what I thought :confused:.
    I do remember reading their rules once (was comparing something with the others) and it did state player must start.
    Wonder what would have happened if Villa came on and scored and the other three had already scored?
    How could they not pay out on that?
    The other side of the coin is if he only came on for 5 mins, would they have then voided the bet?
    There are different rules with different bookies.

    It was an enhanced special with specific term and conditions, they are quite within their rights to void it. No other bookie was offering that bet at those odds so thats a moot point tbh.


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,186 ✭✭✭ Juwwi


    99 out of 100 people would presume that if 1 player doesn't play at all
    that it would revert to a treble.

    l wonder how many times 1 player doesn't play but also 1 of the other players doesn't score meaning people are throwing away dockets when
    they should be getting their money back.


  • Registered Users Posts: 684 ✭✭✭ ianburke


    if u put it in an accume u wud find it wud have been about 40/1.this was an enhanced special.not many bookies do this.rules are quiet fair.if one player does not appear then all bets void.its to avoid all complications like in this case.what odds would they pay out at?it wud be too much hassle.fair play to them for actually giving these odds unlike other books.


  • Site Banned Posts: 880 whiteshorts


    125/1 enhanced from 40's would be a massive enhance?


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,050 ✭✭✭ bobwilliams


    125/1 enhanced from 40's would be a massive enhance?

    r u saying the bet was never offered?go google it.
    I wonder did they make a mistake though.

    nonsense. I've bet on these specials all the time and it reverts to the prices of the other players. Loads of bookies offer these type of specials

    Eg In Ladbrokes they have a 10/1 all 3 players to score anytime. if one player doesnt play if reverts to an sp double on their original prices to score anytime in a double

    They dont go and void it.

    Same as if a bookies had a double up on screen today at Ascot
    Alive Alive Oh and Coach House to win at 9/1

    Enhanced odds but ALive Alive Oh a NR. Does the customer get his money back...does he buggery, it reverts to a single on Coach House

    Paddy Power pulling a fast one and OP right to feel aggrived


  • Registered Users Posts: 684 ✭✭✭ ianburke


    always check the bets terms.these specials always display terms on pp.take the tennis special.money back if murray wins wimbledon.but before throwing 500 on djokovic i read the terms and see max refund up to 100 euro.so you just gotta be careful to take the time to read the conditions to save disappointment

    A Money Back Special is totally different to an Enhanced Quad.


  • Site Banned Posts: 880 whiteshorts


    r u saying the bet was never offered

    Nope, never said that.
    Was making the point that if it was only 40/1 for the quad, to enhance to 125/1 was a big enhance on the price.


  • Registered Users Posts: 684 ✭✭✭ ianburke

    i know.but if u dont check the terms you only have urself to blame.surprised there has been so many posts here.ive done those specials before on pp and always known that every player must be involved or bet is off.this special is not a quad.either all 4 score or they dont.in this case they didnt.clear cut.


  • Site Banned Posts: 880 whiteshorts


    known that every player must be involved or bet is off.

    I'm nearly sure I got paid as a treble when I did an anytime quad special before and 3 scored and 4th didn't play any part?

    In my opinion you are clued in on these specials and on what you back but in a special like the OP posted there is no reason why the special bet should be different than normal bets on quad bets.

    Why should a punter be expected to look up terms and conditioned to see if a bet is being taken in strange circumstaneces .

    IE ::if the opening poster's friend had of taking normal odds in a accumulater in PP or in any other bookie the bet would of been settled as a winner of a treble and a non runner.

    If everything sdaid in the opening post is true and l think it is then PP are pulling a fast one.

    A accumulater bet was placed then why not has one selection not been void and a treble been paid out?


  • Registered Users Posts: 684 ✭✭✭ ianburke


    I'm nearly sure I got paid as a treble when I did an anytime quad special before and 3 scored and 4th didn't play any part?

    never happened to me before.i remember a few unlucky ones where the only player who didnt score came on with like 2 mins left.then i didnt even get money back.but never been paid out on 3 when 1 of the 4 havent played.only when ive done doubles trebles etc.cant get much on these specials anyways.they had a few up last night.spain to score in the first 5 mins 2/1.max bet for me was 2.5 euro and my account isnt massively limited.

    i noticed with this new tennis special that theyve pushed djokovic in from 15/8 to 13/8.and cant get more than a few quid on.will have to do my bet in the shop instead i guess.

    If you are anyway limited, go to a shop where there are no limits at the same prices.
