Justbet bettors cash-in on World Cup
On the eve of the much-anticipated knockout phase of the FIFA World Cup, which begins on Saturday, Supreme Ventures, through its JustBet sports betting brand, has paid out approximately $60 million in winnings since the FIFA World Cup began on June 12.
"This has been the most memorable World Cup tournament in recent memory and we at JustBet are extremely pleased with the betting response so far," commented Andrei Roper, Supreme Ventures' senior marketing officer for sports betting. "We are very happy that so many persons all across Jamaica have been turning out in such large numbers to our sports betting locations to place their bets with JustBet.
"We are also happy that so many of our bettors have been winning in what has been a World Cup full of upsets thus far. We expect lots more excitement in store and possibly even a few more upsets as we enter the knockout stage of the tournament," Roper added.
In a tournament full of surprises thus far, three teams ranked in the FIFA Top 10 - Spain, Italy and England - have all been eliminated, while Costa Rica, who began the tournament at odds of $1,000 to win the World Cup, finished top of their group.
JustBet is currently offering a wide range of betting options on the FIFA World Cup, including odds on which team will win the tournament, which teams will qualify for the final, which group the World Cup champion will emerge from, who will be tournament's top scorer, half-time and full-time results of every match, which player(s) will score in certain matches, predicting the exact score in each match and much more.
JustBet is also offering special bets for the knockout phase of the World Cup, such as odds on how many matches will go to extra time, and how many will go to penalties.
