Betfair settlement times losing bets
« on: Mon, 04 June, 2012, 18:16 »
Hi Guys
I am reporting a very important scenario concerning Betfair settlement times I am hoping that it is an error on my part.

I have noticed that sometimes Betfair delays settling markets although the results are already in.

I have waited half an hour to get a settlement from Betfair, and this is critical if using a staking plan and relaying on a settlement.

Sometimes a result is never settled, especially when the result is a dead heat.

Has anyone had the same problem? And if you solved it how did you combat it, is there a solution to this?

it can happen if you stop refreshing the market to early.
if you are running live bets, then you can use the hist_count as a work around, but only if you bet on 1 selection or dutch bet with recovery as the history counts multiple bets as one.
