Paddy Power are taking the mick.

PP are treating their customers as mugs.
Happens nearly ever day nowadays where they are taking the mick with their prices.

They had a treble up last night and all today, Ireland, England & Wales all to win at the weekend World Cup RU "enhanced" from 13/2 to 8/1.
Only problem is doing the treble on the individual prices in the shop, England 2/7, Ireland 9/2 and Wales 2/5, treble works out at 8.9/1.
So the "enhanced" price is lower than the ordinary price by nearly a full point!
Wonder how many people they have taken in today by this and will they pay them at the higher price?
Probably not.

There are so many occasions where the was prices are higher then what they are saying which means the enhances are lower then they are making them out to be.

I try not to but I still go in to see what "gems" they have up every day.
Best recent one was Connolly to start against the Swiss at 6/4!
Wonder how many people "in the know" got on it before it got pulled?

Was still 8/1 this morning so said it to a staff member.
HQ then cut Ireland from 9/2 to 7/2 and also cut Wales to 4/11.
Due to margins they then ended up pushing the match prices back out and
pushed the treble out to 11/1.
