Sportsbook.com Issue Refunds To Packers Bettors

September 27, 2012

The poor officiating by replacement refs in Monday’s Green Bay/Seattle game prompted Sportsbook.com to issue refunds to anyone who picked the Packers. This is a huge gutsy move by a sportsbook in Sportsbook Advisors opinion.

Late on Tuesday afternoon, Deadspin.com reported that the refund offer only applied to bettors on the Sportsbook.com site which serves non-US customers. Players from Sportsbook.ag were not eligible for the refund because they are a totally separate company.

This rapidly breaking Internet news item shows how the NFL referee lockout was impacting the sports betting world.  But fear no more. The NFL has agreed in terms to an 8 year contract with the regular referees and they are expected to be back for tonight’s game.
