“Bettors who wagered thousands of dollars that President Donald Trump would win the 2020 presidential election are now planning legal action against at least one online gambling site for their return.”
This reminds us of the ridiculousness of the snipe-hunt for Hunter Biden related dirt in Ukraine, as OANN continues its investment in the disinformation and ignorance of the Trump administration in contesting the 2020 election. At least one maker of voting machines threatens to sue some media outlets for their unfounded allegations. Happy impeachment anniversary.
Bettors who wagered thousands of dollars that President Donald Trump would win the 2020 presidential election are now planning legal action against at least one online gambling site for their return, according to a report published by The Daily Beast.
European bettors told the publication they bet money on a major online gambling service called Betfair in favor of Trump winning reelection. Now they're calling out the company or planning suits because they still believe that Trump could be victorious, according to The Daily Beast.
Earlier this week, President-elect Joe Biden solidified his win when he officially received more than 270 votes from the Electoral College. Biden's victory follows weeks of baseless claims from Trump and his associates challenging the integrity of the election.
“The Electoral College formally cast its votes on December 14, and this enabled us to settle the remaining Betfair Exchange markets on the US election,” Betfair said in a statement. “The Next President market rules stipulated that we would settle the market on the candidate that had the most projected Electoral College votes. Following the Electoral College votes being cast, that candidate is clearly Joe Biden.”
