In light of news that Monday night’s game between the Buffalo Bills and Cincinnati Bengals won’t be resumed this week, several sportsbooks are voiding out unsettled wagers and returning money to bettors.
The game was postponed in the first quarter after Bills safety Damar Hamlin collapsed from cardiac arrest and needed to have his heartbeat restored on the field. The latest update from the team on Tuesday was that Hamlin remains in critical condition at University of Cincinnati Medical Center.
With no word on if or when the game will be finished, Bally Bet, BetMGM, Caesars, FanDuel and Hard Rock were among the sportsbooks to announce the cancelation of bets.

BetMGM and FanDuel said multi-leg parlays that include voided bets will remain active with only the voided leg removed and the price adjusted.

In addition to unsettled markets, Hard Rock announced it’s also voiding out losing markets from Bills-Bengals.
In the postponed CIN-BUF game, we'll be paying winners of fully-determined game markets and voiding all losing and unsettled markets.
We apologize for any inconveniences and thank you again for your patience. Funds will be returned to accounts ASAP.
