"Quidditch is total bollocks. Why don't they just have 7 seekers? THE SNITCH WINS THE WHOLE GAME YOU IDIOTS
You can just tell a woman invented it."
Catching the snitch does not guarantee a win - it adds 150 points to the total of the team`s score.
So, for example, let`s say Slytherin is playing Gryffindor. Slytherin is losing 10-170, and their seeker catches the snitch, ending the game. 150 points is added to their score, so now the score is 160-170. Gryffindor still has more points, so they will end up winning the game.
As you can see, this even only happens if the team who catches the snitch is losing by more than one hundred and fifty points, so it`s usually a rare occasion. The team who catches the snitch usually wins, though. And thats why thiers not 7 seekers.
