    Put it on England if you want a safer bet.
    Or put it on Slovenia or the USA for better odds.

    Just do it on something more predictable if you want a guaranteed win, or wait until someone is 2-0 up and then bet on them to win.

    Trying not to be harsh, but you really shouldnt be trusted with money if you can't make a decision like this yourself.

    Go 3-0 England if you dont mind losing but if it does come in you win win a fair bit.

    You don't get the money paid back, they give it back to you as a free bet, and you need to wager it again before you can withdraw it.

    I have no idea about teams in the world cup, I like watching it but no idea who to put a bet on! I wouldn't normally put a bet on but either way I get my money back so I thought I might as well :whistling:

    Yep! Seem's pretty confusing to me!
    I don't mind putting a bet on, as long as it is risk free!
    As long as I will actually get my money back if I lose, and I can withdraw it, then I don't placing the bet

    Hmmn, you might be ok then. I've done similar with a few other betting sites over the last few days, hope I can withdraw on all them as well, plus quidco.... which is £40 for this site btw.

    Put on the money for USA to win, put it to 'BACK' is that right yeah?

    Edit :
    Also did a £1 on england to win tonight with the KGB deal, and have also got the o2 sim card £5 per goal thing!

    you can withdraw the bet. i have.

    dont get confused with betfair, just ignore the "lay" option and your fine.

    Even laying on Betfair is pretty straight forward to be fair.

    Ok :thumbsup:

    Don't do USA. They are 1-0 down

    Can someone just confirm that you need to enter the code BET234 (?), where/when you enter it and if you have to spend/bet the £25 all in one go? Thanks.

    Which promotional code did you use? There seem to be two - bet234 and cup456, I can't work out which means what!

    Used cup456, I think the bet234 one has to be used if you want to use quidco ( but seeing as I was putting in under £20 there wasn't much point!)

    Thanks, so the cup456 means you get your £25 bet back if you don't win, and if you do win you get the £25 back plus the winnings? Lol, I'm so rubbish at this, I have read through maybe 12 pages of the other thread and none the wiser!

    I put the £25 on England to beat Algeria - oooops.
