Don't Pay The Penalty At The World Cup
June 09, 2014
It’s time to get those World Cup 2014 Outright Winner bets placed and some bookmakers are ensuring punters won’t pay the penalty if their team exits via a shootout.
There’s nothing worse than seeing your outright selection crash out of a tournament after a penalty shootout, so it’s well worth taking advantage of one of the penalty pay-back offers available on the 2014 World Cup.
Of the three firms’s currently offering a penalty based money back promotion, Bet365 look to have the best offer as their terms and conditions don’t state a cap on the refund amount which is also in cash as opposed to free bets. Furthermore their offer can be used against both win and each-way bets throughout the tournament right up until the final at 06:00 AEST Time on Monday 14th July.
Sportsbet’s World Cup Winner Special applies to outright bets placed prior to the completion of the group stage at 02.00 AEST on Sunday 29th June and entitles punters to a refund if their selection is knocked out in a penalty shootout. Unlike Bet365 though, the refund will be in the form of a free bet bonus and is capped at $100.
Another firm with a Penalty Payback promotion is Unibet, but their offer is a little less straightforward. Punters must stake a minimum of $20 on the World Cup Outright Winner market prior to 23:59 on Friday June 27th and each-way bets are not included in the offer. Should the team be knocked out on penalties in the last 16 only, Unibet will refund losng stakes up to a maximum of $50 as a free bet.
