Got stung by Sporting Bet at the weekend. Placed a NO SAFETY CAR bet for the Mexican Grand Prix. Stupidly I assumed like virtually every other bookie out there I know that they did not count the Virtual Safety Car scenario.
I got 5/2 which was top price albeit not a stand out price.
Anyway, there was no actual safety car but there was a virtual one so I lost my ‘winning’ bet.
If I’d have placed that F1 bet anywhere else other than Sporting Bet with their unusual stance I would have collected.
Moral of the story – take the time to quickly check the rules for any usual bets. You never know what trapdoors may await.
Very annoying but lesson learned 🙁
