Hello, I hope you are well. My name is***** am a solicitor advocate and I will be assisting you with your question today. I am very sorry to hear of the problem you are experiencing and I will do my best to help you with this matter.
All the states have yet to officially declare their results. There may be reciting taking place. Although Biden has claimed victory, if proposed law suites take place and until all results are officially declared there is no legal obligation on any Bookies to pay out.
Once all states have finally finished counting and formally announce the results then the Bookies should pay out.
Thank you for using Just Answer and for allowing me to assist you with your legal enquiry. I am pleased I was able to be of assistance.
Bookies will take your bet before the outcome, that is the idea of betting, you don't bet after the outcome.
Once the results are finished, is the person you backed wins then the Bookies would pay you.
Sorry you feel that way. I am a real lawyer, and have given you the current legal state of things. I am very sorry if what you are told you do not like, but as a lawyer I have to tell the facts not just what someone wants to hear, sorry.
I am not backing anybody, what I have said is you made you bet before the election. That is correct. You cannot bet after something has taken place.
Once the FULL results are in from all States and they have officially declared the winner then if your choice wins you will be paid , if you loose, you won't. But as it stands, several States have still not finished , there appears to be recounts and possible legal challenges. Until all that has finished no one would pay out. Several elections ago, one candidate came forward and announced they won, then later had to retract that after a recount.
These things happen. You will just have to wait to the end for the final outcome.

Thanks, ***** *****
The reason the original poster backed the bookies is that their actions are lawful.
I do realise this isn't the answer you want. I can either tell you what you want to hear or I can tell you the truth.
It is a matter for you really. The answer that you want is wrong.
The right answer is that the result was pending for a very long time and you bet during the time it was and unfortunately lost.
