To quote Florence and the Machine, sometimes you feel like throwing your hands up in the air... but hold on. Euro 2016 doesn't need to be about disappointment at your team's poor performances out on the pitch. We've got a whole range of fantastic bets with leading bookmakers that will put the fizz back in your champagne. Take a look at what's on offer.

The European Championships can be frustrating, particularly if you like goals. Many times, the group stages can be unbalanced affairs between top teams and more minor ones, and then the knockout stages can be cagey games between sides afraid of making a mistake. Betway knows your pain, and that's why it's offering a little extra to you.
If you place a bet on either the exact score of a match, or a goalscorer, but the result is goalless, you're ok, because Betway will refund you up to £/$/€25 for losing bets.
The Irish might bring you luck, thanks to Dublin's own BoyleSports, who is offering a great betting deal to customers. You might think hitting the bar is something you need to do in order to watch Euro 2016, and you'd be right... but it's also the most frustrating thing in football - when a player from your team goes for goal, but ends up smacking the ball against the crossbar. The end result is that a piece of woodwork is the difference between success and failure.
If either side hits the crossbar in a match, BoyleSports is offering to refund all bets as a free bet... except for a bet on a player hitting the crossbar, of course.
Gary Lineker once said "football is eleven men against eleven, and the Germans usually win." He might have added, "on penalties". It's unjust, but sometimes a team that's played really well gets eliminated, simply because they haven't got enough people with the stomach to slam a penalty past the opposition's goalkeeper.
If you choose to bet with Bet365, this isn't a problem for you. Place a bet on a team to win outright, and if that side falls to another on penalties, your losing bet will be refunded. Bet365 is keeping this open throughout the tournament, so you can feel secure whenever you choose to put your money down.
Wayne Rooney, Jamie Vardy and Harry Kane are likely to be the strike combination England takes into the European Championships. There's a fair chance we'll see them score a fair number of goals - but even if we don't, you can still win a bet. Here's how.
Betfair, exclusively for new sportsbook users, is giving odds of 5/1 for any of the three players to be England's highest-scoring player at Euro 2016. We're almost sure one of them will be, so this is a great bet to take, and a great reason to join Betfair.
Kane is probably the man we'd pick out of the three we mention above to go on and be England's top scorer. He's got the technical ability to score from a variety of places, and he's scored almost a goal every other game for England. For this reason, Paddy Power, home of the Money-Back Special, deserves to be noticed for this great bet.
If you're a new customer with Paddy and you place the minimum deposit required in the site's terms & conditions, you can get 10/1 for Kane to be top scorer for England. It's a great-value bet, and given you'll be getting a lot more of those with Paddy Power in the future, it's one we can recommend.
