London, Friday 6th December 2013 – Bookies Genting Bet have fired the opening shot of the World Cup wager wars by offering customers money back if Brazil lift the trophy.
The new sportsbook, which launched in October, will unveil the offer today ahead of tonight’s draw for the group stages of next summer’s tournament
Five-time winners Brazil are the red hot 3/1 favourites to triumph again and are already being backed off the boards by football fans across the globe.
And if they do, Genting Bet has pledged to return stakes of up to £50 to customers who back any other team for glory.
Hot on Brazil’s heels are previous winners Argentina and Germany, who have both been chalked up at 5/1, with Spain next at 11/2. Belgium are available at 14/1 and Italy at 20/1.
At 25/1 Roy Hodgson’s England are the longest price they’ve been in decades and head of sportsbook at Genting Bet Ruairi Boyle doesn’t think they’ll trouble the record books.
He said: “Expectations are fairly low when it comes to England for the first time in a long time, so football punters will be looking around to see who else they should be backing.
“We wanted to make an impact on the market and hopefully offering money back on every runner in the race if the favourite wins will be attractive to customers.
“The World Cup will be massive for us next summer and we’re going to have to be both competitive and clever in what will be a very congested online space.”
Genting Bet offer a host of markets on all the top sporting events including football, horseracing, and tennis.
New customers to the site can currently enjoy a free £25 matched bet on their first wager, as well as select bets and offers tailored to the sporting calendar.
