It’s not very often bettors receive insurance on their wagers, but bet365 is bucking the trend with its Penalty Payback offer for the remainder of the 2018 World Cup in Russia. It’s as simple as it sounds: Back a team to win the tournament and get a refund if your selection is eliminated on penalties. Applies to losing pre-match bets on applicable markets for World Cup 2018. Bet restrictions and T&Cs apply. New and eligible customers only.
Therefore, if you bet on the latest to-win-outright odds, as of July 11, which were France 8/13, England 5/2 or Croatia at 11/2, you’d receive a full refund if your squad was knocked out by a shootout. The offer is good for eligible and new customers on each-way and win bets in the win outright market as long as they’re placed before the Final kicks off at 4pm UK Time this Sunday, July 15.
Just be aware that the bet365 Penalty Payback offer doesn’t apply to wagers which have been fully cashed out. In addition, if a bet has been partially cashed out then the refund will be applied to the remaining active wager only. If you use the bet365 edit-bet feature to alter a qualifying wager before the match kicks off and your team loses in a shootout then just the new bet will be refunded. Also, the offer doesn’t apply to bets that have been made using the in-play feature.
Be sure to take the sting out of losing should your pick get sent packing on penalties and check out the full terms and conditions before making your bet365 outright-winner wager on the World Cup Final.
