    Should my bets have been voided?

    I bet on a soccer game on bodog (Canada) which was clearly an error. There was two tabs open for total goals o/u at 2.5. One of the tabs was active and the other was stuck at under -165 throughout the whole match. At until 85th minute, the active tab was now showing -5000 and the tab with the error was still showing -165. I bet the -165 line and long and behold the game goes over 2.5 because they score 3 in 8 minutes.

    I know if I had won that it probably would have been voided, but since I lost, can my bets still be voided? I know most terms and condition say that if there's a software glitch they have the right to void the bet. Or are they going to not honour that rule because they won?

    You knowingly bet into a bad line?
    if so now you lost and want a refund?

    Do I understand that to be correct?

    Before I tell you what I think and what
    will probably be the outcome.

    Number one rule, never bet for a bad line.

    It's the pitfall of betting obvious bad lines. You often end up freerolling yourself. You may not get paid when you win and still lose if you lose.

    Not like you can go to them and say hey I took a shot and lucked out, can I have my money back. Well you can try but no good will come of it for you.

    I bet on a bad line before and had it voided. (When I won) I figured my bets on a bad line was going to be voided regardless and was curious what Bodog would do. Bodog terms and condition says bets are considered void if there is an obvious line error. I guess they will void it if they lose but won't do the same if they win?

    It was a rigged soccer match by bodog...they waited until all you suckers bet the bad line and then turned on the scoring in the last 8 minutes. They got you.

    Karma works in mysterious ways....so how much did you put on it?

    Agree here...you tried to take advantage of a seemingly bad line and you lost. You took a chance at free money and failed. Move on learn from this mistake. Best of luck in the future.

    In the end you took a shoot
    at Bodog and they fired back.

    As you are now finding out their shots
    can do more damage then yours can.

    real crazy thing about this is that you say
    yiu saw this scene play out before and knew
    the outcome before hand yet you still clicked
    the -165 box with 5 minutes remaining in the
    game..

    Sounds to me that you are not only a cheater
    but a real stupid one.

    please let us know if you get a refund.

    This is true.

    id say 50/50its done with intent to
    trap a few guppies.

    If it is a play on the players it’s a
    old move.. got to be a real fish to bite.

    As you can see the fish are still swimming
    around.

    You weren't "curious", you were taking a shot. Consider it a lesson learned.

    Why do you give such stupid advice? You really think books are that fuk'in dumb? Software glitches and bett'in on a bad line voids all bets. If you're stupid enough to do it, you run this risk of having your account frozen and they're certainly not gonna pay you for a bad line.

    Then why would he be calling them and asking for a void if he didn't know it was a bad line?

    Of course they cant take down a line that is showing in a users browser due to a glitch. Obviously you dont understand what is going on here but you can take it from me the book did not leave anything up to "catch people out".

    Amazes me when people say these things. Do you think books just hate customers so much they actually want to trick people into doing things that makes no profit for either side
