Frustrated football bettors who took the Green Bay Packers on Monday night and lost on a controversial game-ending call can get a refund if they placed their bet downtown at the D Las Vegas, the casino’s owner said today.

The Packers lost to the Seahawks on the last play of the game after an officials’ call that outraged fans across the nation. It also had a big impact on sports books in Las Vegas, resulting in a $15 million swing by some estimates.

Refunds on all straight bets and all money line Packers bets can be claimed at the cashier’s cage at the D by Sunday. People must present their ticket, showing they placed their bet at the D.

The deal is being offered by the casino and not by William Hill, which operates the D’s race and sports book and 158 others across the state.

Derek Stevens, owner of the D casino and its chief executive, said he was so shocked by how the game ended that he decided to make it up to his customers.

“I’m so disgusted that we are going to refund every bet made on the Packers at the D,” Stevens said. “I know exactly how it would feel if I was laying the number and I saw what happened.”
