    Certainly a desperate move to give a 50%discount on something that has not has that sort of margin does that means the prize is also reduced by 50%?Customers today were coming in store enquiring about this. When I explained that they are not buying a actual ticket but placing a bet with a bookmaker who has a insurance policy in case they win the operator would have to make a claim on the policy to get paid. The common reply was forget it sounds dodgy to them.

    Colin, bookies don’t work on margins, they work on odds. Your customers are right, it’s dodgy.
