Can think of a few I’ve been missing
Tie break played on all tennis games
Test match end on all test matches
How many  classified over /under 17.5 on Grand Prix
Most aces on all grand slam men’s games
Session runs on all England test matches
Fixed under over points on basketball games

Can anyone think of anymore .  Seems these unique markets being gradually edged out to make exchange more linear like a sports book
Endangered markets I’d say 1st innings runs (not a line ) 6 /10 over total (not a line)
Completed match on all one day and t20 games
Anymore ?

First Corner, Next Goal and Over/Under 5.5 Corners in football.  Next Goal seems the strangest to remove.

"Hole in one" for the major events has been missing in action for a few years. That pin position on the 16th on the sunday at Augusta caught a few out back in the day. Those days are well and truly gone though.Cry

Total goals market.
It had all the unders/overs markets grouped together in 1 market, commission saver, but it also had a lower base rate than those markets 2% Vs 5%, also different odds increments so instead of going 2- 2.02 it went 2- 2.01, from what I remember it went up in .01 increments all the way to 1000.

Why are you paying 5%?  Are you not on Basic?

That's different longbridge, it says in the rules for those markets that commission is charged individually on each separate goal line. I think they have just grouped all the goal markets together on one screen but they're still treated separately and it looks bulky.
The total goals market went around 10 years ago I think, when the base rate was 5% on most other markets.

I'll see if I can upload a picture.

That was the total goals market. Notice the weird odds increments, annoying when someone leapfrogged your 36 offer with 36.01 Laugh

All the finance markets went years ago - as I recall there was a suggestion that they might need FSA rather than UKGC regulation so BF closed them down.

Big Brother maybe?  as it started again last night

I used to bet several thousand on the elimination markets.  A few years later turnover was down 95-99%.

was only ever "live" on eviction nights.  No idea about this reincarnation, and have no intention of following it, but does seem strange if the public don't decide.
