ESPN Bet, a gambling service platformed by Penn National, is facing criticism for not honoring won wagers due to a bylaw regarding pushed bets.
One particular X user went viral after hitting a five-leg parlay, but the entire bet was cancelled because of a house rule that considers a pushed wager in a parlay to cancel the whole bet.
This has led to accusations from users against ESPN Bet and Penn Gaming. (Trending: Biden Shamefully Removes God From National Address)

“Penn National did not respond to multiple requests for a comment, and ESPN BET support did not respond on social media,” the NY Post reported.
Per ESPN BET’s bylaws, Section B, Para 6.2.c read as follows:
“If one or more selections in a same game parlay portion of a Parlay+™ wager settle as a push (for example, due to a total ending up exactly on the number that was selected), the same game parlay portion of the Parlay+™ wager that contained the applicable selection will be deemed a push, except if a selection of such same game parlay portion results in a loss, in which case
“This essentially says that you won’t be graded a win with a push even if your other legs are successful. If any leg is unsuccessful, you are graded a loss, as usual,” the report added.
“Most other sportsbooks, including FanDuel, would reprice the wager and pay out your winnings if one leg pushes and the other cash,” the report noted.
