Players Sue Toto in Netherlands

Four people in the Netherlands have sued the state's Toto betting operator for not paying out football bets in full, although the operator says that the bets placed took advantage of a mistake.

The players are being described as being "semi-professional" and claim that they won nearly €26,000 betting on a Danish Cup football match last year. The bets went down at different Toto retail locations as the company had odds that paid out roughly six to seven times the amount of the bet on HB Koge to win.

HB Koge was in a higher division than the opponent, meaning that the odds were considerably favorable for the four gamblers. Toto alleges that the odds were a mistake and that the winnings should be less for the players as they knew that the odds were too good to be true.

The lawsuit seeks the payment of the remainder of the funds.

This is so stupid. Gaming companies take advantage of players all of the time, but when the tables are turned they don't like it. Shameful, especially from a state-owned operator.

Of course they will probably point to some clause like "errors void all wagers" or something similar. I really hope the punters win.
