Let me give you this scenario. You stake a bet on a Saturday evening for a match that is suppose to take place on Sunday. Unfortunately it started raining heavily on Sunday so the match has to be postponed. You are sad and all of a sudden you remember your bet. “Oh wait! What about my bet?” In this article, we will explain to you what happens if a game is postponed. When a game is postponed, the outcome of any bets placed on that game will typically be delayed until the game can be played at a later date. In most cases, sportsbooks will simply hold the bets and adjust the odds once the new game date is announced.
However, some sportsbooks may offer the option for customers to cancel their bets and receive a refund. This option is typically only available if the game is postponed with a significant amount of notice, such as several days or more before the scheduled start time.
If a game is postponed with little notice, such as on the day of the game, it is less likely that sportsbooks will allow customers to cancel their bets and receive a refund. In these cases, the bets will typically be held until the game can be played at a later date.
In the case of a game that is postponed indefinitely, such as due to a league or team strike, bets may be considered void and customers may receive a refund.
It’s important to note that different sportsbooks may have different policies on postponed games, so customers should always check the rules and regulations before placing a bet.
In general, it’s a good idea to keep an eye on the schedule and any updates regarding postponements, as these can have a significant impact on the outcome of a bet. Being aware of the rules and regulations of the sportsbook you’re using can also help you understand how your bets will be affected and if you don’t understand anything don’t hesitate to call the sportsbook customer service for clarification.
