This one is both confusing and alarming. Las Vegas' William Hill offered a prop bet on where different quarterbacks would be drafted. One featured a spread between Baker Mayfield and Lamar Jackson. It was 7.5 spots meaning Mayfield, who went first overall, easily won over Jackson who went 32nd. Yet a for reasons that are never really explained, William Hill initially didn't pay out on the winning tickets and tried to offer a refund. To us, it sounds like a case of a sportsbook hanging a bad line and bettors pouncing on it. Why it went so far that
on it and the Gaming Control Board got involved looks pretty poorly on William Hill who has already built a reputation of not being sharp bettor friendly.
"Of course, in any case, any problem regarding the grading of a ticket not resolved to the satisfaction of both of the bettor and sports book operator, is handled as a dispute case. Bettors should always bring grading concerns to the attention of the sports book operator first. If the book is not able to resolve the issue, then the licensee is obligated to let the patron know they can contact the (gaming control) Board to investigate the matter. If there is a disputed amount and it is $500 or more, the licensee must notify the Board."
