I'd imagine they were using a third-party platform and that had the glitch, so they probably had some clause in the contract, maybe.

From BBC article:

Betfred had argued that the software glitch, which stopped the game from resetting properly while Mr Green was playing, was covered under the terms and conditions of the game.

However, Mrs Justice Foster ruled that the wording of the clauses relied upon was "inadequate", and "not transparent or fair and Betfred were not entitled to rely upon them".

It would be interesting if anybody went to court and tested the Betfair T&C for outages for trading.

Got no sympathy for Betfred they have made a fortune from gamballing and derserve to give something back.

I like the way they tried to hush him up with £60,000 as long as he never spoke about it again.

Isn't that classed as a bribe or blackmail ? :roll:

I remember along time back in 2010 or 2011 I think when the bot/market maker offered £860 at 1.01 lay odds on every selection at betfair exchange games on every round. Lasted about 3 hours. He/she must have been sick when they checked their account balance. I only spotted it/managed to get on 3 minutes before all the games were taken down.

I bet someone who first noticed it must have made a pretty fortune 100% risk free for hours. :lol:

No its just an offer of an out of court settlement. Happens all the time. It's a bet on the odds of winning, vs costs and likely award.
