You’re not returning a space in the string

``````return count + ''+  holdbet;
``````

should be

``````return count + ' '+  holdbet;
``````

HI @ridzzali110 !

If you add a `console.log(cc(2))` after your function then you can see the result is `1Bet`

The correct answer should be `1 Bet`.

The space is important.
