Fanduel has reversed course on its decision to not pay out $82,000 in winnings to a New Jersey bettor.

"Above all else, sports betting is supposed to be fun," the company said in a statement Thursday, according to The Associated Press. "As a result of a pricing error this weekend, it wasn't for some of our customers."

The bookmaker will pay Anthony Prince the full amount of his winnings from a $110 bet. It will also pay 12 other customers who made similar bets at inflated odds during an 18-second glitch in the system.

Prince placed a bet on the Denver Broncos at 750-1 odds in the final moments of their Week 2 game against the Oakland Raiders, with the Broncos down two points and already in field-goal range.

The bet was placed at FanDuel's sports book at Meadowlands Racetrack in New Jersey. The company had first refused to pay out Prince's profit, citing obvious errors. FanDuel says the computer-calculated odds should have been 1-6, a number that would have paid a profit of $18.35 on the $110 wager.

Prince initially said he planned on getting an attorney involved.
