Wow, Len that's just fraud in my opinion.
A fibre optic cable does not interfere with being paid, that could have been rectified.
Never ever heard of not being paid for a second placing in a field of 5.
Actually of all the bookies, I had won a 5 figure sum off them and they never limited my account, so I have (had) them on my list as one of the best bookies around. Classic Bet being the worst in my experience. They won't take you on to lose more than $100 if you're even a little bit up with them.
Thanks for the alert, I will be watching them closely from now on.

I recently gave a "thumbs up" to Luxbet.
I retract it.
On 6/12/2017, they offered $2.00 the place about Ipswich 6/3, which I took. The horse came 2nd, which by any rational measure is a place.
Luxbet classified it as a losing bet and kept the money.
I pointed out the wrongness of that, and my stake was refunded, thus I back a winner and do not win with Luxbet.
What was the problem one may wonder. Lux says "From my understanding a fibre optic cable under St. Kilda road was damaged and as such resulted in some software issues". No I'm not making that up, my imagination is not that vivid.
They follow up with "In this instance, your bet will be void. Luxbet does not pay a place for a field of less than five". No, they just take bets on fields of less than 5 and keep the stake unless the mug punter complains. How many others did not pick up that they were not paid?
PS, QLD tote paid 2.90 - so not only was I cheated, I'd taken massive "unders"..
