Hi guys,

I watched the news last night, it is mm..German cup? after the underdog team scored then there was a power blackout?

It just comes to my mind that something i heard before, it is said for soccer gambling, they will take the results after the light turns off, and the blackout serve as a conspiracy for gambling group to manipulate results.

I believe it isn't the first time a blackout happened in a soccer game, I am not a soccer fan and i am not a gambler too haa.. but i find this explanation interesting and would like to verify it..

Is it true?

I thought if the match is cancelled due to unexpected reasons, either due to power cut or extreme weathers, all bets are annulled?

So nobody has a confirmation? haa.

I remember i read that before, an EPL game or other international game, someone caught by causing the power failure, and that guy nationality is singaporean.

Ya, i think i refer to underground betting, but not restricted to local! i think there is much bigger underground betting in those country.

For me, it is kind of logical that some kind of power failure happens for a reason, if the $$ is involved. So how, the power failure in soccer game is being seen too much time, isn't it?

Underground betting almost sure its until match stop lah..... power failure trick can only be done on small stadiums lah... there are some other ways to stop the game... like fans throw missile and ref abandon match... or bad pitch condition after half time.... so match postponed....
