I'd worked a guaranteed profit of £50-odd regardless of the result... all bets now voided. What is going on?

Same here just went to cash out after the goal only to find bet cancelled and stake back into account.

The market was pointlessly suspended at some point mid first-half. Looks like every bet placed between that suspension and the goal has been cancelled.

phew, exactly the same here thought I hadn't pressed confirm for the bet and then realised that if I hadn't it wouldn't have took the £25 out of my account. Problem is there is no record of it anywhere in my bet history

This is the problem with Betfairs shambolic management of football markets with VAR as they blindly refuse to only re open markets once we all know VARs decision and everybody is left 2nd guessing will they won't they void the market with the next problem being when will they void the market as its anyone guess 1. immediately 2. within 10 mins 3.at the end of the game 4.later on in the evening or 5.the next day ? its a complete lottery to manage your position if trading.

When the VAR check was done before the penalty, did they void all bets since the previous VAR check by mistake ?

I've been backing 0--0 from the start  At the moment they've cancelled every bet since the 0--0 odds were 8.2.

It was 5.5 at half time

Same experience on the 0.5 and 1.5 markets. Bets cashed out around HT found to have continued running after I had left the exchange. Does not inspire confidence.

VAR is a complete shambles, i'm amazed they think it's reasonable for people to have bets matche, trade for the rest of the game based on that position and then a few hours after FT void certain bets.  The fact that they regularly take up to a minute or not at all to suspend on a VAR review makes a complete mockery of the rules

@saddler winner - also the Over/Under 3,5 goal market was canceled. I traded on that market inplay.

Once a goal is scored and Betfair suspend they should not re open the market until it is clear following VAR what the outcome is but they won't and continue to bury there head in the sand re opening markets when a blind man can tell them that its obvious that VAR will be involved.

"Does not inspire confidence"

Exactly. As traders, you have absolutely no idea what position you're in. Could find yourself significant money down without realising.

Yeah, but Betfair know best. You, me and hundreds of other people will shout at them until we're blue in the face, but they're not going to listen to advice or common sense.

I had a number of bets on this match tonite. At the moment betfair are ripping me off to the tune of £255, revoking my bets, which were placed 20 and 10 mins before Brazil scored their winner.

Sort yourselves out betfair, this is a disgrace...................U are coming across as a small time outfit not deserving of our custom.

That's what happens when a company outsources different parts of its operations to other countries.

I could see from the screen that something strange had happened to the CS market, but couldn't figure out what. A 60 quid green, suddenly became £27 for no apparent reason. This is a bit worrying.

Indeed, that should be obvious to them.  At least in that situation they reverse the bets reasonably quickly in my experience if it's ruled out

What I can't understand is how bad they are at suspending on reviews.  They manage to suspend for goals/reds on time most of time yet with reviews they are woeful.  You can't have a live market trading for a minute with that turn out being voided hours later, it's ridiculous.  They need to let the bets stand.  What if someone puts their balance inadvertently on an outsider at 25/1 during a slow VAR suspend then greens up at evens after.  You could potentially be thousands in debt once the back bet was voided.

Surely all this nonsense takes them ages to fix as well.  Feels like every game there needs to be some manual adjustment.

Yep. The markets I bet on seem to have been fixed too......................for the time being.

The question remains though.
