    Bovada to credit all who had Blazers -125 canceled with winnings now

    I'm starting a new thread so all who weren't following page 3, see this. Also because when a book makes something right it deserves the nod. Bovada is crediting all players who had Blazers -125 canceled before game 5 as if the series was over and the bet has won now. The only stipulation is 1x rollover as is the case with credits/deposits.

    Bovada mgt genuinely believed this was a human error but combined with the injury line changes and not alerting players of the cancellation as is their standard procedure, they felt it was fair to resolve in favor of players.

    So they get a win regardless of what happens in Game 6 and 7 if necessary? Well nobody can complain about that since they didn't have to win Game 5.

    No, people who bet the Clippers when the Blazers were -125 would stay canceled. This isnt a bet reinstatement. I'm told there were some who benefit from that but very few since they would have bet on the bad side of a bad line.

    No, should be done some time today. It is a little tedious because of all the different amounts and there are quite a few players.

    Good to hear

    Would have been funnier if jj 'The Player's Advocate" gold would have made a call on video and then the credit came.

    Wonder what the actual liability was for Bodog? I'm sure they have limits in place on series bets. In any case, this was the right thing to do...Nicely done SBR for helping players and to you Bill for starting a fresh thread on this.

    +1; the rollover part is ridiculous as well. A player shouldn't be subjected to a rollover because they won.

    If I have received my refund it wasnt iinto my account and locked for withdrawal. I simply had a casino bonus of $50 that you don't really get anyways

    No shit. Bovada is a f-ing joke for trying to pull this off in the beginning. Then they make you do a rollover for a winning bet. Trash book
