Did I just get freerolled on a futures bet?

Quote:
Any reason why you haven't paid out on WNBA Conference winner New York Liberty? Regular season is over and playoffs are not conference-aligned.

Dear Customer,
This play will be graded shortly. These type of futures are handled by management so we will check with them as soon as possible.
Thanks,
Customer Service

NY Liberty was in first place in the Eastern Conference of the WNBA on Sunday. Regular season has been over for 5 days now. Postseason isn't seeded by conference; if the Cubs win the NL Central, do you wait to see what happens in the playoffs before paying out bets on the Cubs to win the NL Central?

Dear Customer,
This bet is to win the 2017 WNBA Eastern Conference, so as per management this play will be graded when they get to the finals. So the winner will be the team that plays in the Finals from the Eastern Conference.
Best Regards,
Customer Service

Do you understand that the WNBA playoffs are not seeded by conference and that the finals are not guaranteed to be West vs East? If NO team from the east plays in the finals, are all bets on the Eastern Conference Champions declared losers???? The top two seeds in the Playoffs are the Minnesota Lynx and Los Angeles Sparks; BOTH FROM THE WEST. ¬ The most likely outcome is that LA plays Minnesota in the FINALS!!!!
Let me put it in terms of a sport you understand; If I bet on the Washington Capitals to win the Metropolitan Division in the NHL, do I lose that bet if they don't play in the conference finals?
How about if the Packers win the NFC North, play the wildcard Vikings and lose in the first round, is a futures bet on the Packers to win the NFC North a loser??
Thoughts, folks?

Not a great idea to get mouthy with support like that. They're humans doing those jobs dont forget. All youve done is worsen your chances of getting paid.

Personally I rarely bet on futures anymore. Just so easy to get free rolled.

They're telling you that it's handled by management. Call and ask to speak to a supervisor. Politely.

I don't understand why they even offer this bet because it doesn't matter at all. They should be offering future bets based on playoff seed #s.

Re: Did I just get freerolled on a futures bet?

Should've made it clear that my first two posts were 5 days apart. Their most recent response was that management would look into it this week, but they're busy spending their time on football lines this weekend.
Maybe the snark isn't an optimal line, but I'm just on monkey tilt with the idea that I had a good bet and it hasn't been paid because they didn't really understand the wager they offered. Also, this service is an online service contracted by my local. He's out of town right now but said he'll look into it this week.
