Beware PartyPoker's "Money Back" Wager Offers



Sep 24, 2013
With Partypoker opening up their lines for the football season, they have been issuing weekly offers that look like these:

San Francisco 49ers Money Line (Money Back on losing single bets if there are 7 or more sacks in the match)

New York Giants Money Line (Money back on losing single bets if the 3rd quarter is the highest scoring period)

At first glance, the bettor simply pays a higher premium on the money line value for placing the bet, but beware. Although it isn't mentioned anywhere in the bet conditions, or even anywhere in the rules and regulations, the money returned to your account is in the forum of a bonus, not your actual wager returned to your account.

Upon speaking to a customer service representative, the reply was "Please accept my apology, I will forward you feedback, that the Money Line feature needs clarification. That's all I can do."

That and 5 cents will get me something worth 5 cents.
