Sportsbook: Golf - Bet Settlement

If your Outright Each Way bet has been paid out for less than you expected, it is most likely due to dead heat ties in the final leaderboard. A dead heat occurs when two or more participants tie for a position. This will only affect bets placed on golfers who ‘place’, as the winner will be decided by a playoff if necessary.

Your payout with dead heat applied will depend on:
  • The player you backed
  • The odds you took when you placed the bet 
  • The Each Way places offered when you placed the bet.  
  • The Each Way place terms (1/5 of the odds you took when you placed the bet) 

Your stake will be affected as follows:
  • Win part of the stake is settled as a loser.  
  • Each way part of the bet will be settled as a place, with the stake divided by the number of players tied for the place, multiplied by the number of places available. 

    EG: You had €/£5 each-way on M Wolff (40/1 pre-tournament). EW terms were 1/5, for 5 places. Your bet would be settled as: 
    • €/£10 stake = €/£5 win stake + €/£5 EW stake 
    • Win stake = loser  
    • €/£5 EW stake divided by 5 (number of DH competitors) = €/£1 
    • €/£1 multiplied by 2 (number of places available) = €/£2 DH stake 
    • Odds of 40/1 at 1/5 EW terms terms = 8/1 
    • Total Winnings: €/£2 x 8/1 = €/£16 
    • Total Returns: €/£16 winnings + €/£2 DH stake = €/£18

First place: 
If you bet on Bryson DeChambeau it will be settled as the outright winner. 
 
Each ways:
As there were no ties within the first 5 places, if you bet on Matthew Wolff, Louis Oosthuizen, Harris English or Xander Schauffele, your bet will be paid if your selection finished within the number of each-way places accepted on your bet.

If you bet with 6 each way places on Dustin Johnson or Will Zalatoris, your bet will be paid based on 1/2 of your each way stake as there were 2 selections tied for 1 place. . 

If you bet with 8 each way places on Tony Finau, Justin Thomas, Webb Simpson, Zach Johnson or Rory McIlroy, your bet will be paid based on 1/5 of your each way stake as there were 5 selections tied for 1 place.

If you bet with 9 each way places on Tony Finau, Justin Thomas, Webb Simpson, Zach Johnson or Rory McIlroy, your bet will be paid based on 2/5 of your each way stake as there were 5 selections tied for 2 places.

If you bet with 10 each way places on Tony Finau, Justin Thomas, Webb Simpson, Zach Johnson or Rory McIlroy, your bet will be paid based on 3/5 of your each way stake as there were 5 selections tied for 3 places.
