    The new wave of legal online/mobile sportsbooks are all doing this. FanDuel has had some “bad beat” refunds as well for bad/controversial calls. It’s a goodwill story to draw in more customers, while also knowing gamblers will just lose the site-credit (usually requires betting 1 or 2x the amount before you can withdraw - good luck to most public bettors/joe schmoe doing that).

    Net-net, gaining publicity and probably still making the money down the road, I don’t think they’re too hard pressed by these moves. Now I wish this was available when I was going offshore bookie, because I have a laundry list of bad outcomes I’d like back.

    Definitely see you’re point of opening the can of worms.

    And this is how you get an 8.5 cheez-it score. I can’t stop laughing about this stupid game.

    We’ve got hands up and a guy running off the field in celebration for IU. Art.

    thing about it is... what about those folks who lost money on the Ark Barn game where they came out and said it was a screw up... they didn’t refund those... I get it from a PR stand point but i think you open yourself up for way to much by doing this seemly randomly... I could see having a once a quarter “bad beat” where you get to request it for a site credit ...

    One thing to consider is that the limits at most online books are so small it wouldn't be financially viable to try and sue the book. I see your point on the potential risk but I think the nature of the business, and the clients, makes it a pretty low probability outcome from the books perspective.

    I look at this, and I still don't know.
    It's the Shrodinger's Cat of TDs... the ball is out of bounds and across the goal line... and he's down.
    But as with Shrodinger's Cat... once the call is made, you can't reverse it. That's the final state. Happy to be in the right timeline on this one.
