It depends on the bookie I would say. However, be aware that a lot of bookies are just thieving, amoral, rapacious, bas***ds.

There was a huge row last year when BetBright went out of business and as part of their winding up plan they just voided a load of ante-post bets where the ticket holders were in a massively advantageous position and stood to make big winnings if/when their selections came in. Incredibly this course of action was agreed to by the Gambling Commission (who are the most useless and ineffective regulator in existence). 

In the end (if I remember correctly) BetVictor came in and took over the business and honoured the outstanding ante-post bets.

I'm guessing that they would void them unless the result was already known, and then most companies would probably pay out on Liverpool as a goodwill gesture (or PR move, if you prefer).

 

You'd be pretty sick under this scenario if you'd backed Leeds, Rotherham and Swindon for promotion for example.

Yep, but what can you do? The bad luck would be similar to the clubs themselves.

Speaking as someone who used to be a betting shop manager, in 95% of these controversial cases the customer either doesn't know the rules or they're just trying it on. Especially the ones who go to their local paper and trot out the usual "they're quick enough to take your money" line.

No customer is going to read the small black print as an event like this is so so rare.😄

Hmmmmmmmmmmmm.............. I used to be a betting shop manager.

While I certainly came across cases of customers trying it on I have to say that any dodgy/immoral activity I came across from punters paled into insignificance compared to the dodgy and immoral activity of the bookmakers themselves.

Whilst on the face of it, it is immorally wrong, what else do you expect them to do?

Some on these bets were probably factors of them going bust.

Its also not dissimilar as Thomas Cook who were still taking bookings at 10pm one night, knowing full well they were going bust the following morning.

In terms of AP bets - Rules state any market that is mathematically not finished, will be void. However I'd think the likes of PaddyPower/Betfred would probably pay on some of the obvious looking results - Liverpool title/Norwich relegated etc.
