when i put the net on that was the estimated returns. i thought they would correct it when paying out

By my reckoning that can't be right unless you are on 1% commission, nice cast but not many in the bag

There was an old boy there about 80, putting a 20p patent on he overheard me laughing at the cashier and it developed in a full scale swearing war between him and her as he couldn't believe her stupidness as a shop manager that she didn't have the common sense to see, i took the 99.99 and slipped out quietly before he ended up either having a heart attack or assaulting her. Still to this day never met anybody who can tell me how this was worked out, says it all about a lot of the shop staff these days.

It looks like they are converting fractional odds into decimal prices, but only to 2 decimal places.
Report StewB January 13, 2018 2:17 PM GMT
If the bet was paid at decimal odds of 1.72 then including stake, the return would indeed be £37.84

i was betting with the same firm all day and was getting the same strange returns all the time. £22 on a 10/11 returned $42.02
