Ok, so he takes the money & then immediately hands it to Watto? How does that make more sense than simply saying "You keep all of the winnings, I get the parts"? It's actually very foolish for QG to not include the parts in the deal. Watto would be perfectly entitled to sell them to someone else in the meantime if he wanted to. Then QG would say "But you knew I needed those parts!!" "But you didn't include them in the bet. You just said you wanted the cost of the parts." But you said QG needs a receipt to verify the deal for the parts. Why? Yet he's happy to take Watto's word RE the Anakin bet. That's incorrect. He'd only give up Anakin if Anakin won. In which case the ship is off the table. The ship only goes to Watto if Anakin loses. That was already agreed to & has nothing to do with Anakin's freedom. He also only gets the pod if Anakin loses. That's his only reward from the 2nd free-Anakin bet. He gets the winnings, obviously if Anakin wins. So he wasn't risking Anakin to win the pod, ship & the winnings at all. He risked Anakin only to win the pod. He would've received the ship anyway but obviously he'd get no winnings. This highlights very well what a convoluted mess the whole betting scenario is in this movie. Even clever people such as yourself who know the movie back to front don't know what's going on. The most ludicrous part of it was Watto willing to bet a valuable slave for the chance to win some pod that he's never even seen. But here's the kicker. If Anakin wins he doesn't get the super fast championship winning pod. In fact he loses either Shmi or Anakin (depending on the dice roll). Only if Anakin loses does he get the pod. A 2nd rate losing pod that his slave kid built out of spare parts somewhere. And he knows that if Anakin loses it's usually due to him smashing up his pod. So if Watto wins this bet all he's likely to get is a pile of scrap or at best a losing unsuccessful pod. Ridiculous.
