First goalscorer bet

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

Just a quick query to see if anybody is in the same boat as me and, if so, how they resolved (if they have).

 

I had AJ as first goalscorer on Friday at 6/1. Paddy Power are refusing to pay out so far, saying that CD is registered as the scorer (this despite my sending links to the Vale twitter page, the Sentinel, and Vale website own match report). Patently ridiculous but I stand to make nearly £300.00 on this, so I'm not dropping it!

 

Anyone with similar issues in the past?

Depends in their terms and conditions what source it says they use for deciding the scorer from personal past bitter experience.

Cheers. Regardless of the T&C, you would think that with all of the evidence to the contrary, they would do the right thing and pay out. Oh well, will have to keep on badgering them!

That's the way to go and keep appealing to their 'better nature'.

 

Do you have an account with them as you could mention your loyalty to the brand? You could also give Durham and Goughie a shout on Drive on talk sport and get them to badger the main man!!

 

I've been with them for years (and lost plenty of money!). Good call re Talksport! I'll get on it!

That's a difficult one. I wonder if an email to the Press Association may help?

 

It's PA who do practically all of the live scores services for English football and many other services use their service as the "definitive" answer to who scored a goal.

 

I know Vale have tweeted to say that the club considers AJ to be the scorer so perhaps include a link to that in any email to PA.

 

I hope that helps!

Most betting firms use the Press Association to settle goal scorer markets at full time. Whatever is sent by them is what stands. For what it's worth, having checked the fieldbook, Coral paid out on Dicko too.

 

Even then I'd have another chat with PP.If he wants to take it further,because PP won't pay, IBAS are the guys to get in touch with.

Given that no firm has settled AJ as a winner you'd have a hard time getting a decision through IBAS. Best that you could hope for is PP offer something as a 'gesture of goodwill' which is still unlikely.

Philmpv,try to talk to PP first to see if they can pay.Don't lose your temper.If you had a bet in a shop,a manager above the shop manager has the authority to make a discretionary payment.( I didn't tell you that).If they still won't pay get in touch with IBAS ,who resolve disputes.Thats where it stops.Paddy Power are .registered with IBAS.

Phone number for IBAS is 020 347 5883.

You may win or you may lose.Good luck.;)

I used to manage a bookies and there is no chance we would pay out on this even as a goodwill gesture. Good luck though Phil I hope you get your money.
