all their punters are idiots?
Was in tonight and they had in play betting on Verdasco v Malisse.
Prices were as follows
Verdasco to win 3 sets to 1 = 100/1
Verdasco to win 3 sets to 2 = 7/4
Malisse to win 3 sets to 1 = 9/4
Malisse to win 3 sets to 2 = 5/4
Score at the time was 2 sets to 1 to Malisse and 1 game all in the 4th set.
So Ladbrokes, how the **** could Verdasco win 3 sets to 1??????????
Went up to the counter and told the staff to tell HQ, it was impossible for it to happen.
4 games later and it was still showing 100/1 Verdasco to win 3-1
but the prices for the other 3 outcomes had changed.
Wonder how many €1 and €2 bets they took on it?
lads were refunding stakes as a free bet if ballotelli scored first or last
i backed no goalscorer they told me it didnt could yet if i did
pirlo for first scorer it would count
no goalscorer is part of the first goalscorer market
bet was done in shop and your man there told me it was gone
emailed support and they tell me otherwise
It's not their fault if people are stupid enough to bet on it.
This is also true, I actually meant to say yes, and they are right in my response
It's an error on their (sub par) in-play betting system. These problems have been going on for months now, ridiculous that it hasn't been fixed.
But they aren't doing it deliberately
Don't think that excuse will work.
The one scenario that could not happen is the only one where the price doesn't update or suspend even though the other 3 changed?
The worst part of this thread is I told the shop staff to tell HQ traders but 4 games later, it's still showing the same odds for something that cannot happen.
It's a joke, but one that's not funny any more.
Of course they are.
They are quoting prices (and probably taking bets) on something which could not happen.
If it was the shortest price which wasn't updating, you can be assured that they would take it down immediately.
If it doesn't work right, don't use it.
They are making the punters out to be fools.
Getting close to a call to John Martin to investigate, but I'd guess, having taking all control back to the UK, there will be zero interest from the UK heads.
You say they are "making the punters out to be fools." If people are placing bets on it they clearly are fools and I would go as far to say they deserve to lose their money...
Most punters are idiots
I would have thought that if a bookmaker is displaying odds on something, there must a chance of it happening, however large or small.
Excluding the likes of Elvis to return, "Liverpool to win the PL " and stuff like that.
Someone could walk in and have a quick look and decide 100/1 is worth a fiver, they mighn't have seen the scoreboard.
They weren't showing the match live so the only place you could see the scorebaord was the screen in the shop.
Don't disagree with some punters being fools,
The number of people who back virtual horses is unbelievable.
What stupid comments.
As already posted what about people who dont know the score and
stick money on it.
I know you could say people backing without knowing the score is stupid
but that does'nt mean they should have their money robbed from them un fairly.
What ladbrokes are doing is nothing short of thieving.
People shouldn't be backing something without knowing the score... that's just retarded.
Whether you are right or wrong with your opinion of people backing on a event without knowing the current score you dont realy get
the morally wrong thing Ladbrokes are doing here do you ?
Its like saying that a american tourist should check the quickest
route to their hotel before getting into a taxi or otherwise if they get ripped off by the taxi man they deserve it.
Your hardly a ladbrokes employee worried about your job or something are you other than that I honestly cant understand why someone would stick up for a bookie in a case like this.
Ladbrokes hate being in this country, due to the offers & money back from other bookies that they don't have to offer in the UK.
Just be thankful you are in Ireland and not UK.
The offers over there are non existant, have a look at the e/w betting on the main golf events as a good example.
It really doesn't bother me at all.
And no, I'm not a Ladbrokes employee.
