    Far from it. Sorry but the media doesn't choose the winner. First of all they are still counting votes and many recounts and court hearings to come. Nothing is official and won't be for another few months most likely.

    Bookmaker hasn't paid at all and is claiming they are waiting until January 20th. This sounds pretty unacceptable to me.

    Mine hasnít paid either. I assumed theyíre waiting until all legal challenges are completed, which shouldnít be much longer. It would be pretty stupid if itís until January 20th.

    The guy on chat told me Jan 20th for the prop bets on electoral vote margin to settle. I guess they paid out some bets on a state by state basis so far.

    Without getting off-topic \ partisan \ triggering- we're only here to make money-

    There should be no cause for complaint here, we all knew this could be subject to fraud, be held up for months... only worthwhile for futures adherents.

    The fact that some books have chosen to pay out on Biden...when votes are still being counted, zero states have officially certified voting, DoJ & FBI investigating numerous referrals, over a dozen lawsuits pending...ehh.
    (Trump has a -200 chance of ultimately prevailing IMHO...)
    Still works for books when they end up paying both sides due to all the extra action- 2-1\2 months' worth- and positive publicity.

    To those who disagree or are unaware- more than half the country is unknowing of these possibilities- because even worse than fake news is missing news: ignored \ cancelled \ deleted news, shares & searches by the tag team of msm & big tech... Even Fox has joined them.
    The only inkling of true US happenings- by mainstream outlets- is coming out of Australia, but for specific details and latest updates one has to know from memory specific US websites.
    But to get their content from general platforms and searches (who wants to go manually from site to site- even the specialized aggregators), one needs to be both signed in to the platform and subscribed to each website's channel. Otherwise they don't come up in generic searches, shares and suggestions. (I've even signed up for the stupid Google Opinions Rewards- because a few of their polls are about rating the relevancy of their content suggestions (re Search, News & YouTube) for you the specific user).

    Hedgers, Scalpers & Arbers may wish to be on the lookout for any ++ Props on Trump being Inaugurated.

    Good luck everyone.

    They've clarified this on Twitter. Yes, the rules say inauguration, and yes that's what their CS is saying when you ask. But they are trying to grade election wagers as quickly as possible. Many have been paid out already. I don't blame any book for holding off a little be on the electoral college win. There's almost no chance that it gets reversed, but there are technically recounts in play.

    Anyone who placed election wagers should have done so expecting that things might go on for a while. Trump has been saying for over a month now that he would accept the result if he lost.

    Nothing is going to be held up for "months." Trump has struck out in every single one of his legal actions. We're looking at 1-2 weeks here in all likelihood. Worst case is that there are enough recounts to make us wait until early Dec.

    My God just get it through your thick penetrating skulls.......IT'S OVER. The fat, indecent piece of shit is GONE. It's not 'far from over'. Everyone knows it's over except chubbs and his supporters. Just an exercise in futility, though. Think of all the money that will be spent on these lawsuits --- could go to charity instead. Funny how the elections are rigged, but only in those states where red is losing.

    Electoral college is Dec 14, that's the end of the road.

    Now given the various law suits have all been thrown out for lack of evidence, the only plausible route I can see is that Trump will try stop some state's EC voters from contributing, with the intent of pulling Biden below 270. If that happens, Congress votes by delegation and Trump wins.

    Problem with this: in Pennsylvania the governor appoints the electors, and he's a Democrat. There are perhaps various legal shenanigans to get around that, but it's banana republic stuff and I'm dubious enough local GOP will follow through - the US would be a complete laughing stock internationally. PA alone wouldn't be enough either.


    Most of this is probably just theatre for the Georgia Senate run-offs.

    There is no fraud and there is no path forward for the grifter to win. He will continue to file frivolous lawsuits so he can fund raise off of them. As the Wall St Journal reported half of the money raised can go to pay off the RNC and the campaign debt. Remember the con man "billionaire" never paid one cent to his campaign. A grifter has to grift and with rubes such as his base he won't stop until he has sucked them dry like the leech that he is.

    No chance? All the Supreme Court judges Trump elected Defended bush during 2000. Is this a coincidence- I think not? Will the Supreme Court confirm Trump If they find election fraud? Honestly, I wouldn't be surprised, as I don't think Biden won the primary fair and square.

    Trump is brillaint. He knows exaclty how to expolit the hard working people who follow him just like any cult leader. He is veryy smart doing this so knowing full well as does the party that its going nowhere and hes out becase it is a fund raising BONANZA taking money from all his hard working loyal follower to help pay for his huge campaign debt and also help fund Georgia Run Off. It's all a false flag shinny object to deflect from reality that he and the GOP need money

    Trump can easily fund the 50 million himself and should if he wants it so bad.

    Nice try. But it's far from over and most likely Trump prevails like he always does. And all that money that big tech and fake news media donated to losing dems campaigns should have went to charity. Trump is using his money wisely to prove to the American people the Dems are a fraud and tried to rig the election.

    Yes, although Bookmaker has not paid winning wagers, they have graded several of my wagers as losses prematurely (and incorrectly based upon projected winner). I have contacted them, and this was the response (which does not make any sense considering I contacted them about wagers which have already been graded). "Thank you for contacting us!I know you're eager to have this graded and we absolutely want to settle the US election bets as soon as possible. As you may know, even though the outcome has been declared official, there is uncertainty over whether there will be possible legal challenges moving forward. We apologize for the wait but we just need to be 100% certain that the outcome has been accepted by both sides before we can settle these wagers.If we can be of any further assistance, please do no hesitate to contact us via chat or by replying to this email.

    What are the bets in question?

    If there’s clear mistakes, you’ll get them fixed at Bookmaker for sure.

    If they do not get all your bets graded correctly once they do decide to officially grade everything, SBR can help you get a mangers ear to review anything.

    But I suspect they will re-grade them as winners at the time if needed.

    With a lot of states it's actually not legally possible - the elector is automatically replaced.

    What is potentially possible in some states with different parties in their legislature and governor's houses: they send two different sets of electors. You then have Congress having to figure out wtf to do, and the head of the Senate plays quite a big role in that case ..... which is the current Vice-President.

    Actually it's even worse than that. Bookmaker is marking many wagers as losses "based on percentage average", and not paying winning wagers.

    That is shady. Do you know this for sure? I suspected some books would take this route. After 5 Dimes screwed future bettors over, it seems like they're no honor amongst men anymore offshore.

    I don't think the books want to hold the $$. They probably need Biden anyway.
