So...I contacted Jetway as the bet hadn't been settled. Then then came back to say Finding Dory was the biggest grossing film of the year then Rouge One then Captain America..!I've contacted Betway> again by chat and they say it's up until the end of the calendar year with the winner declared on 1st January 2017.
Me: It's a bit of a weird question but it's in regards to a specific market and is likely more suited to the traders who put up the odds but I was wondering about what the conditions of the 'Highest Grossing Movie of 2016' bet are? It's under Specials > Movies > Box office. It seems a bit vague. I'm assuming it's 'biggest worldwide gross at the end of 31st December 2016' or something like that but I'm not really sure.
Neil: YEs I can see the market, what is confusing about it?
Me: The conditions of the bet aren't clear as there are none just a sentence of 'Highest Grossing Movie of 2016'. Is it 'highest worldwide gross at the end of 31st December 2016' (which is what I'm assuming it is), just US/Canada (it might be instead) or is it another criteria...I'd like it to be made as clear as possible, please.
Neil: It will be the highest Grossing movie world wide.
Me: ...by 31st December 2016?
Neil: No the 01/01//2017
Me: Alright then, thanks. No idea why there isn't a disclaimer. It's a bit vague.
Neil: The market time frame is listed above the selections.
It's not particularly clear what the conditions of the bet though is it!? Cheeky sort.
Betway> still have odds up for this until the end of the year. Small limits whatever the case.
'Star Wars: The Force Awakens' made $742m after three weeks...

...so 'Rogue One' surely is not going to make more than $1.147b between December 14th and the end of the year!?

They've gone with US and Canada!
I went back to them saying the terms and condictions said it was worldwide which contradicts this. Then then said it will be settled this week in a bit of a snotty reply with a general thing about other promotions that they're doing.
Hmmmmmm. Watching this with interest.
