# Thread: 2010 World Cup - How much have you lost (or won) for this entire month?

1. ## Re: 2010 World Cup - How much have you lost (or won) for this entire month?

Won a good amount, enough for a new lens or body.

I followed my prediction in the other thread after Mani and Paul had different outcomes: Draw in FT, with Spain winning in OT.

If you bet big and followed Paul Octo strictly, you win 8 in a row.
Assuming the pay off rate is 3 to 1.
i.e. \$3 for a win if \$1 is bet.

That is 3 to the power of 8.

So if you bet \$10,000 for a start and if you win, you bet the whole new amount into another match. In bookmaker jargon, this is called an accumulator bet.

You win 8 in a row.

You would have won \$65.6 Million.

\$10,000.00
1 \$30,000.00
2 \$90,000.00
3 \$270,000.00
4 \$810,000.00
5 \$2,430,000.00
6 \$7,290,000.00
7 \$21,870,000.00
8 \$65,610,000.00

If you bet very big, say about \$100,000 for a start, bet the whole new amount and win 8 in a row.
You would have won \$656 Million.

The British bookmakers William Hill offer to buy Paul Octo.
Maybe they want to kill it.

No... For the last match, you can follow Pauls' pick on who will win the WC, but NOT on who will win the match. You potentially would have lost 21 million if you bet on spain to with the match (since those bets are purely for full-time only, not counting extra time)

For WC final, simply choose Bet Type 20. Championship Winner. No need to bother have extra time or not. Happily collect your \$65M. Go on long holiday, buy many top end cameras and have nice shoot. Do not eat any food with Octopus in it during your holiday.

if you trust Paul so much to dump everything back after each win, you would have bought the 1x2 which gives higher odds.
