The 2015 Rugby World Cup kicked off on Friday, seeing hosts England comfortably win against Fiji.
Across the nation, many punters are trying to learn all the rules of Rugby to immerse themselves in the tournament. Those struggling to do so will be pleased to hear that even some of the England professionals aren’t aware of all the rules it emerged yesterday.
There are quite a lot of betting offers, and we’ve rounded up them all. Good news is that all of the offers today are for both new and existing customers.
Betway: World Cup Outright winner special
If you bet on the outright winner of the tournament, and New Zealand win, then Betway will refund losing bets up to the value of £20. New Zealand are currently favourites for the tournament with odds of 2.20, just over evens, so in theory there is a one in two chance of this refund happening. If you fancy and England win, this might be a good insurance option. To take advantage, you need to have you bet down by Friday 25th September.
William Hill: First try scorer special
William Hill have a similar offer to Stan James, but better. If your first try scorer doesn’t get the first try, but does get the second, then William Hill will pay out as a winner. This is the difference between Stan James and William Hill. With Stan James, you only receive your stake back, whereas William Hill will pay you as a winner. There is a ‘maximum benefit’ from the settlement which is £500.
Stan James: First try scorer refund
If you’re betting in the first try scorer market, and your player doesn’t score the first try, but actually does get the second of the match, then Stan James will refund your losing bet. The terms and conditions don’t specify the maximum refund available (suggesting there isn’t one), but one really nice thing about this offer is that the refund is issued as cash, rather than a free bet. So if you wanted to withdraw it, you would be able to.
