A ‘‘Dead Heat’’ is when two or more participants in an event finish level in such a way that for betting purposes they cannot be separated.
In effect this means you have more than one winner in a given betting market, i.e. top goal scorer of a competition/league – at the end of the competition/league, there may be two or more players with the same amount of goals. In such scenario, we will pay out both outcomes, but the stake of each bet will be divided by 2 (as effectively your bet only half won, so fairly and simply only half of your stake wins) as there were 2 players ending up as top goal scorers. In case there are 3 goal scorers tied in the first place then we divide the stake via 3 and so on.
Let's look at some examples upon this scenario: you bet £10 on the Top Goalscorer of La Liga to be Messi with odds of 6.00.
Example A: If Messi ends up as the top Goalscorer you will get paid $60 as there is no dead heat applied. This is calculated as following: stake ($10) * odds (6.00) = winnings $60
Example B: if Messi but also Benzema have the most goals scored in the competition/league making them both Winners of this bet you will get paid $ 30, calculated as follows: We have to divide our stake of $10 with 2 because there were two players with the same amount of goals scored in the league, so we have $10/2=$5. Then we multiply this number by the odds ($5*6.00=$30).
Example C: if Messi, Benzema , and Suarez all have the same amount of goals scored in the competition/league making them all 3 Winners of this bet you will get paid $20 calculated as following: we divide your stake of $10 by 3 because there were three players with the same amount of goals scored in the league, so we have $10/3=$3.333. then we multiply this number by the odds ($3.333* 6.00= $20).
