MGM no longer pay ties in full

I was surprised when MGM applied dead heat rules to my nationality bet. I followed up with support, and specifically asked about top 5/10/20 markets, and was told “Dead heat rules apply to all placings in a tournament”. I’m not sure if/when this was changed, but if true I hope DataGolf will edit the MGM disclaimer on the betting tool page.

I think it’s only their winners markets as I noticed the overall first round leader did not say ties paid in full, but the top 5/10 for the same market did

I have no idea what the answer is in this particular case, but after 10 years and 100+ bookies; whatever the support agent says you’d do well in assuming they’re wrong


Alright that’s very fair, so hopefully MGM does still have favorable top 5/10/20 rules. But they do not pay nationality ties in full.

They have never paid nationality or FRL ties in full. look for the little i and click on it. if it’s ties in full it will say so.


So is the tl;dr here that nothing needs to change on scratch tools?

Correct… Thanks! 20 characters

MGM has some place bets now, and they all say ties paid in full, so (surprise surprise) the support agent was full of shit.
