    Game was Netherlands v Vietnam

    Bad line was Netherlands to win most corners, which would have been in the -500 range at a guess.

    It was parlayed with Netherlands Score First, which would have been about -350 I'd guess.

    Parlays were paying around +6600

    I think in that case it was book convinced to make the smart PR call, rather than the state regulator saying they, or the rule, was wrong.

    I'm surprised we haven't seen more cases of voids like this. Goes to show errors don't Have to happen as often as we were used to in years past if nothing else.

    They discussed it with the state then paid the wagers off. You are correct

    They should have to pay it. Human/tech errors that are costly happen all the time in business. Maybe he was taking advantage and knowingly betting into a bad book line/great bettor line. I still blame the book. They are not only in the gambling business but also the app/tech/customer service business and Iím surprised someone wasnít on the back end approving these wagers or at least reviewing them prior to post. Well maybe Iím not shocked, casinos and books are naturally do minimal takers. In Vegas when I make a larger play in a Las Vegas betting app it goes through a process of authorization and many times the bet is reviewed/rejected unless itís under a certain amount.

    So if I lose a bet, I can just say I made a mistake by betting into a line that I thought should have been different?

    It wouldnt be paid in UK, even if went to court. No ones giving away 200k for that.

    Theres better examples where the bettor should have been paid.

    If it was obvious, yeah. Like if you bet Morocco to win the world cup @ +200.... then in theory yes

    Of course not because the Sportsbook are obviously protected by the courts and the government. Must be big lobbyist money coming from the Gambling business.

    Both parties protected, but because the books pay tax to government, then yeh probably they are protected more.

    I mean in Uk, unlike before, players dont pay tax. The books pay 20per cent profits..

    I am far from a soccer expert, but Iím gonna go out on a limb and say they had the odds inverted on the most corners line.

    Ie. Their system had something like Netherlands +5000/ Vietnam -10000 instead of vice versa.

    This bet was an OBVIOUS bad line
