What Happens If I Bet on a Game That Gets Postponed or Cancelled

Our policy on betting events that are postponed, cancelled, or end without an official score.

Updated over a week ago

Betting on sports is unpredictable, not just in terms of the outcome of the game, but sometimes, the events themselves might get cancelled or postponed. These situations can be confusing and may leave you wondering about the fate of your bet. In this article, we clarify Gamba's policy concerning these situations and explain how we handle your bet in such instances.

Event Postponement or Cancellation

When you place a bet on Gamba, you are essentially predicting the outcome of an event. But what happens when the event doesn't take place as scheduled or ends without an official score?

According to our policy, if a betting event fails to take place as scheduled for any reason, or if it ends without an official score and is not resumed within 48 hours, we will refund your stakes or credit them back to your Gamba account.

What Does "Void" Mean?

In some cases, you might see your bet marked as "Void". This term essentially indicates that the event you bet on has been cancelled or postponed, and as a result, your bet amount has been returned to your balance.

If you have placed a multi bet, also known as a parlay bet, and one of the events is voided, the odds for that specific event are counted as 1x. While the odds displayed on the bet slip won't update, the final payout will reflect the correct amount, excluding the voided event.


At Gamba, we understand the uncertainties that come with betting on sports events, and we aim to make the process as transparent and fair as possible. We encourage all our users to familiarize themselves with our policies to ensure a smooth betting experience.

Should you find yourself in a situation where an event you've bet on gets postponed or cancelled, rest assured that your stakes will be safe and refunded to your account.

Our support team is always available to help if you have any questions or need assistance with your bets. If you need further assistance, feel free to contact us at [email protected] or use our 24/7 live chat. We strive to offer a seamless betting experience and appreciate your understanding when unforeseen circumstances arise.
