Hindsight is a wonderful thing but by half-time of the Netherlands v Germany game we here on the Paddy Power Blog were wondering just how desperate our money men are we to give cash away.
The special on this game was that we’d refund selected bets if Mario Gomez (26) scored a goal at any time. Not the first goal, not the last goal, but any goal, any time.
This is a player who scored 41 goals in 51 games for Bayern Munich this season. What next, money back if a player kicks the ball at anytime in 90 minutes? Madness!
Gomez man made monkeys out of us by smashing in a brace before 40 minutes had passed on the clock. Which means if you have a losing first/last goalscorer, correct score or scorecast bet placed on this game, you’re getting your money back. In total we’re refunding over £250k on this game alone!!
