2020 Presidential Betting Thread

Does anyone know any sites that are still taking bets for the election? Most of what I find has their betting paused currently. I think right now would be a time to get a good return on a small bet. Any help appreciated.

I really hope you true believers are right about Orangeman pulling it out in the courts, but I feel like you're the same guys who were guaranteeing a Trumpslide.

Interesting, Sportsbet in Australia which has booked a LOT in wagers, still hasn't taken the money of those who bet on Trump. I regard this as a good sign, these guys stand to lose a lot if Trump wins, yet they haven't taken their money in spite of all the world press calling it.
 
I've checked with two of the betting sites that I bet on:

The first one paid out to biden bets, but still hasn't "settled" the Trump bets - they may actually pay out the Trump winnings if the courts do rule correctly and Trump is inaugurated - they may take the loss on it, as it's still a fraction of their overall profits and plus the possibility of class action lawsuits if they dont.

The second one hasn't paid out either bets and are waiting for the court rulings or Trump to concede.

A third website, which I didn't bet on, believe it's called betonline ag - their founder tweeted that although they paid on the biden bets, they'll pay the Trump bets if Trump succeeds in court and, i.e. the company will take the loss.

Hoping Trump prevails at the courts and is inaugurated.
 
Bet365 did the same for me. Luckily I only had a small hundred dollar bet on there. Betway and Bodog are where my bigger bets are. They’re still active as of 9:15am eastern time.

What do you think is gonna happen if Trump is declared winner? We lost our bets for good?

Great question. I could see them trying to save face and offering us our money or “bet credits” equivalent to what our cash winnings would have been if they are really cheap. But I could also see them doubling down and claiming CNN and all those networks declared a winner and therefore they did nothing wrong. I’m going to send a email about it to them to get an answer.

When trump is handed back the win, we should start setting up groups on reddit / fb to collect all the people who betted on trump and where wrongfully cheated out of their money. Apply pressure and create a scandal its the only way they might consider going back on it. Otherwise we just have to accept that literally millions where wrongfully taken from the trump supporters and given to the hands of biden believers.
