Push bets are noticeably rare on sports betting sites, including Virgin Bet. However, that is not to say they never occur. A Push bet is one that sees neither the sportsbook nor the player comes out on top – with a stalemate the final outcome.
Resultantly, the player’s stake is returned upon settlement of the bet. An example of a Push bet can be found below:

- Therefore, Virgin Bet will return the bettors stake

A bet being made void can be one of the most frustrating aspects of online betting. When a bet is void, it is essentially cancelled and shall no longer be settled. Note that bets may be voided after the settlement of a wager if Virgin Bet has any reason to do so. You will not receive winnings if this takes place.
There are various reasons for a void bet. See some of the most common causes of void bets below:
- The event has been suspended
- The event has been postponed
- The market or price was listed in error
- Your pick is a non-runner
- Technical issues
Continue on for information about suspended bets.
What Does Suspended Mean On Virgin Bet?
Think of Suspended bets as temporarily voided bets. When a bet or market is suspended, you cannot utilize the Cash Out feature to settle bets early, place new bets on that market nor is it possible to view odds on the selection.
Market suspensions may occur for any reason, but most last no longer than a few minutes. Some reasons for the suspension of a bet or market have been outlined here:
- Technical issues on Virgin Bet
- An in-play event
- The market has been taken offline
- Your bet may be ineligible for in-play wagering
