Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- The D Las Vegas in downtown Las Vegas is offering refunds to Green Bay Packers supporters after the controversial game against the Seattle Seahawks on Monday.
Those who bet on the Packers to win at the D Las Vegas will be issued a refund. Refunds on all straight bets and all money-line Packer bets can be claimed at the cashier's cage at the D on or before Sept. 30.
Bettors must present their tickets at the cage and only bets that were made at the D Las Vegas will be refunded.
D owner and Chief Executive Officer Derek Stevens said in a press release that he could not imagine a worse outcome than what occurred Monday night.
“I’m so disgusted that we are going to refund every bet made on the Packers at the D. I know exactly how it would feel if I was laying the number and I saw what happened,” said Stevens.
Stevens added “The NFL has been great for Las Vegas over the last 30 years, bringing in over 100,000 fans every weekend to support their favorite team. I fully understand the importance of the Monday Night Game to our city as well as every Packer supporter across the nation and I just can’t accept this outcome.”
According to a report by the Associated Press, Las Vegas oddsmakers say $300 million or more changed hands worldwide because of the controversial call.
The Seahawks won 14-12 after it was ruled that a Seattle receiver actually ended up with the ball after a pile of players went down in the end zone.
The call was later upheld by officials for the National Football League.
President Obama later weighed in and said that he believed it was time to resolve the labor dispute between the NFL and referees and get regular referees back to officiating NFL games.
