Had a £50 bet on England to beat Holland tonight.

They was 1-0 up, so cashout was creeping up the longer the game went on.

Holland equalized, so cashout went down to £20 ish.

England then scored with 8 mins to go, to make it 2-1. Cashout shot up to £86.

Now the commentators said it looked offside and the ref called for VAR.

So I presumed the cashout would of been suspended until a decision was made.

I clicked on the PP webpage, and they were still offering the £86, which of course I hit.

The goal was disallowed and match back to 1-1

Was just shocked that they kept it open rather than suspend.

Be surprized if they let that happen again.

Finished 1-1 in 90 mins. So £36 profit instead of a £50 loss.

It sounds more like a mistake to me. Seems they perhaps wasn’t quick enough to suspend.

That's the thing. They did suspend it and then reopened it at 2-1 while the replays were being shown on tv and to var, so I presumed the goal stood. When I saw the replay and could see it was offside, I went back to PP and was stunned to see it was still open.
