do the bookmaker void bets sometimes or just in case of real palps?

Sat Feb 25, 2012 8:50 pm

Hi everybody,

a have read that the bookmakers can void bets when ever they want to, with the excuse that it is a palp, so actually i am worried about that.

so if i understood it wright after a bet has been confirmed from the bookmaker , it is always better to check when the game starts if your bet is still there or not - so that you can in the worse case take an other bet instead to limit your probable losses.

or it isn't necessary to check the bets one by one when a game starts?

thank you for time and to share your experience with nebie like me

for arbs of more than around 4-5% you should be aware of a void/cancellation, so better wait close to begin of event for the opposite bet

A bookmaker who voids bets for no reason will not do so to prevent damage to their reputation. If bets are voided its for a valid reason covered within their terms or they are probably unlicensed bandits.

well, sometimes it is realy hard to explain why the bet was realy voided.

i remember that Titanbet gave my a good reason to avoid this bookie.
one day they have canceled few of my bets.
Titan email you if they void your bet with link to "fixed odds", so you could bet again.
some of them i becked up with some loss at other bookies, some of them with Titan.
one of this "second chance" bets got voided, even that the odds were similar to other bookies.
worst, that they did not inform me about it the usual way (email), and when i noticed that, it was to late for any action.

this was a baaad day.

Titanbet are thieves. Save yourself some money and stay away.
