bookies accept wrong bet now change odds?

i placed a bet yesterday for schalke to go through to the next round at 2-1 knowing that inter need to score 4. i thought these odds were wrong as everywhere else they were 1-66. thuis morning coral told me that they had made a mistake and odds had been changed to 1-66.

i would have thought they have to take the odds of 2-1 by consumer rights. like in a shop when an item is priced wrong they have to accept that price.

    They should accept that price .. but bookies will do what they do best and get out of it in any way possible when it comes to dodgy decisions etc.

    I once had an each way double .. i placed the bet .. then a runner in one race pulled out so it was a win only race, my horse came second as at the time of my bet being placed the places paid out were 1,2 and due to the non runner they only paid out for the winner. I literally argued with them online for half an hour but to no avail.

    Morale of the story .. they wont change their mind but if it was in their favour with the timing of the bet being placed they would definatley act differently than if it was in your favour. Try ask them why the mistake was made in the first place and whatever answer they give just tell them that all well and good but the fact is they accepted at 2/1 not 1/66

    Hope it works out for you butty !! Fingers crossed.

    Oh btw .... the 2/1 will probably be marked down as Schalke not to go through to the next round and they will say that the mistake was the labeling. That would seem a reasonable price if that was the case actually.

    Most bookmakers (probably all) have a clause in their terms conditions which protects them from situations like this. When the odds are "obviously" too high they have a right to void any bets placed on the wrong odds. In this case, considering Inter need to score at least 4 at the donbass arena (Schalke's home ground) to go through, odds of 2/1 (3.00) on Schalke NOT to go through are waaaay too good and common sense would tell you there's a mistake there.

    You accepted these terms and conditions and therefore there's nothing you can do about it.

    Believing in god or not believing in god is not something that changes overnight. Although some people do makeup their mind from childhood, for most people, it's a long journey that starts with asking questions and not getting sufficiently satisfying answers, it's praying and not praying and noticing that there's no difference in the result between the 2 cases, it's about slowly starting to to believe in other things and noticing your life doesn't change, nor are you struck by lightning. You've opened your mind and are aware of the facts.. I'm guessing in some time you'll slowly stop believing in god, since it's practically impossible to believe in something when everything you know, every fact you learn, goes against your belief. In some cases of course, people still insist on believing in god despite everything, but that's usually out of blind faith and the fact that it's more comfortable to believe than not believe. The way this continues is up to you.
