The bookmaker's client was unable to redeem the bet, but it saved him
In Russia, a bettor bet 1.2 million rubles in the pre-match and 760k in the live on Juventus’ victory:
“I bet on Juventus on the line, then added it in live. 2 goals were cancelled, I realized that I wouldn’t make it, I wanted to sell in the 84th minute, but they said the buyback was not available...
I buried the bet, but in the 97th minute Andrea scored a cannon,” said the author of the bet.
At the 81st minute, a cashout of 604k was available for the first bet, but the bookmaker did not allow the bet to be redeemed.
As a result, both bets were successful and the player received almost 2 million net.
