They had BETTER cancel these bets before they bring it up as if they bring it up and suddenly all these bets are taken, that's against their own rules.

For Gods Sake. I remembver now why I never leave a positino open near 3pm on a saturday, this sort of rubbish.

Report Just Checking March 4, 2017 3:36 PM GMT
I think I'm seeing unmatched bets disappearing so as long as they are being cancelled that's good news.

Years ago as I remember they brought the site up with bets still there on inplay games which is a total disaster, or let SOME people match bets when the rest of us couldn't do anything, another total disaster. I hope the correct procedure is followed to avoid such things, that's what emergency procedures are for..

Report Just Checking March 4, 2017 4:06 PM GMT
trader that's precisely they can't "refund" trading bets or such. Say you had exposure of 100 quid lay on arsenal to win and they went 0-1 down, and you then went and backed that off on betduck or something for a locked in profit, and then there was an equaliser and betfair THEN cancelled the lay .. you'd be done in. And they can't tell if you were wanting to let it run anyway as they just see a bet not a "trading bet". Thats why they need to honour the pre-matched bets but they should NOT let things that happen after it goes wrong that do people in, like suddenly let all the 0-0 or losing side bets be matched that were set pre kick off etc.

There is one annoyance. Keep bets couldn't be modified or cancelled and aren't auto cancelled. So they come back up and can be taken.

They should allow cancellign of bets even if market locked, that's a no brainer

"Apologies for any inconvenience caused"..........that's all you get, folks, because we hold you in utter contempt. ANY inconvenience? During the busiest two hours of football in the week! Says it all, really. Please don't bother us with your complaints, we don't care and we don't listen. We rammed through the new site, in spite of all your warnings. And, yes, maybe we ARE squeezing you out of the exchange and onto Sportsbook, aka Paddy Power.
Less fancy-Dan marketing and more attention to your systems, please, Betfair. How can it take a company of your size so long to correct a problem like this. God knows, it's not the first time. But not to worry, sending out that pathetic apology "for any inconvenience caused" is plenty good enough for us customers.
