Red face S'pore Pools not accepting bets: Technical glitch or controversial England goal?





STOMPer Munich Koh found that Singapore Pools was not issuing winnings or accepting bets island-wide, apparently because of a "technical error".

The STOMPer thinks that the real reason is the controversial goal by England's Frank Lampard in the Germany-England match on Jun 27.

In the STOMPer's email:

"I was going to the Tanglin Halt Econ mini-mart to claim my winnings and purchase new bets when I was stopped.

"The sales lady said they are not accepting bets or issuing winnings until further notice island-wide.

"Probing further, this could be due to the controversial goal in the England-Germany match.

"I called the SG Pools helpline and they also said the downtime was due to a technical error.

"The truth could be more than meets the eyes.

"It is not so simple. Their systems are very robust from my knowledge."
