Player makes first wager on the New York Giants, favored to win at -110 in the amount of $110 to win $100. If the Giants win, the player would collect $110 initial wager + $100 payout for a total of $210.
Since the player won, his if-bet continues to the next wager. He can ONLY wager up to $210, the winning payout from the first bet.
Next, the player choses to wager on the Miami Dolphins, favored to win at -110 in the amount of $200 to win $180. If the Dolphins win this contest, the player would collect $200 initial wager + $180 payout for a total of $380.
For this 2 team If Bet the player collects: $100 in winnings wager 1 + wager amount ($110) + $180 winnings wager 2 + plus wager amount ($200) = $280 winnings + $310 in wagers.
The player places an initial wager on the New York Giants, favored to win at -110 in the amount of $110 to win $100. If the Giants win this contest, the player would collect $110 initial wager + $100 payout = $210.
If the bettor wins, he can continue to the next bet. He can ONLY wager up to $210, the winnings from the first bet.
Next, the player takes the Miami Dolphins, favored to win at -110 in the amount of $210 to win $190.91. But the Dolphins lose! The entire If Bet has lost. He loses the $210 wagered on the Dolphins.
Therefore, the player would collect $100 winnings wager 1 + wager amount ($110) BUT would lose $210 on the failed Dolphins wager. Giants winnings = $210 – Dolphins losses = $210 = $0 final balance.
The player places his first wager on the New York Giants, favored to win at -110 in the amount of $110 to win $100.
The Giants LOSE. Therefore the player LOSES the initial $110. Any further bets in the If Bet are OFF. He can’t progress to subsequent bets unless he wins each step of the way!
