There’s nothing better than seeing the team you’ve backed win by a comfortable margin. Every Jeff Stelling roar is greeted with sheer delight as your side go two, three, four, maybe even five goals ahead. But then hindsight kicks in.
What could you have won if you’d backed the team to win by a comfortable margin? How many more of Paddy’s pennies could you have pinched to pay for a Saturday night on the tiles?
Oh hindsight, you cruel beast.
Well, worry no more. Because Paddy Power has developed a ‘Kicker’ product, to make sure that kick in the gut you get off hindsight isn’t as painful as it used to be. By adding a Kicker to your win-draw-win bet, the more your team wins by the more your returns go up.
It’s very simple to use, but because in this modern world we all need pictures and beautiful things, we’ve taken some screenshots for you to admire.
Firstly place a bet on your football team to win. Here we’ve stuck €10 on Man City to beat Newcastle, because… well to be brutally honest, because Newcastle’s defence is about as stable as a Kerry Katona marriage.
You’ll see that by ticking the box below my bet I can add a Kicker. By sticking an extra €5 on, I can boost my winnings if City win by two, three, or four or more goals.
Now, let’s not beat around the bush. A game which is expected to be closely fought probably isn’t the place for a Kicker.
However the team with second worst defensive record in the top flight – that’s you Newcastle – have to face Manchester City and Liverpool in the next 10 days. The Magpies have already lost 10 games by two or more goals this season (including a 6-1 hammering at The Etihad Stadium) and with life in the Championship looming large, it’s a great chance for punters to kick them on the way down thanks to ‘Kicker’!
