BetAndWin (SBR rating C-) failing to honor winning wagers
BAW, now called bwin
, users are consistently submitting complaints that the sportsbook is voiding winning wagers well after the match has finished. Many recent complaints are the result of live-wagering bad lines. Few players are able to gauge what the correct market
price should be, and therefore are unaware if in-game betting odds are offered in error. Players are referring to bwin
?s practice of voiding bets on recent soccer matches and preseason NFL lines as "the bait and switch." Bwin
offered Tampa Bay +7 for two days when the average market
price was +3.5. After the game was played, bwin
cancelled winning wagers on Tampa Bay citing their ?bad line rule". Players who took Houston -7 in week four of the preseason are asked to contact SBR.
take shot at players. It took bet on Tampabay and cancelled them after the match... say it was a bad line mistake. wtf is that??? This bookie get to gamble and when they lose they say oops!! sorry my mistake! they probably get new players to sign up this way too!!
