This should be interesting. It's a obvious mistake and he knew it. Nonetheless, DK is easily going to spend that in Federal Court defending that. They should have just paid him to avoid bad PR.
This is completely different than unknown injuries and a bad line. I pretty sure there is lower court precedents
in Nevada favoring the books on issues similar to this.
It happened year or so ago in NJ but I don't remember what happened
Yeah a written ticket is as good as gold in most jurisdictions. The online bets are harder to set in stone because operators will claim technical errors. I get why DK is fighting it even if it costs them, they want to prevent anyone from taking shots at them. But note they have to behave differently than offshores. Offshores will tell you what they are going to do and good luck getting someone to change that decision.This. ^^^^^
DK (or a court for that matter) shoudn't be put in the position of having to adjudicate which bettors knew they were betting into a bad line and which didn't. (Granted, probably 95% knew, but that's not really the point.)
Wasn't there a case several years back in Nevada where Golden Nugget mistakenly hung LSU +33.5 against LA-Lafayette instead of -33.5? IIRC, several sharps bet it before they realized and I'm pretty sure Gaming made them pay, citing the "tickets go as written" clause.
