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
