However, no case of manipulation of bets was reported, as the athlete recently arrived in the country, on loan from a club in Denmark. For not knowing the rules of his new place of work, the Dane was fined slightly, which is unusual in the FA trials. None of the bets were on Liga One matches, equivalent to the country's third division, but Nicolaisen bet on the FA Cup, a competition that his current club also participates in.

Portsmouth released a note on the case:
Portsmouth Football Club believe the player acted in good faith and this was a result of a misunderstanding over the different regulations in England and Denmark. Rasmus has been professional in all aspects since his arrival at Fratton Park last summer. The club have made it clear to all players and staff members that they are prohibited from betting – either directly or indirectly – on any football match or competition that takes place anywhere in the world.”
Betting cases in England are not uncommon, and the most recent was from right-back Karien Trippier, a player in the English national team. In 2018, Trippier indirectly bet on his own transfer from his former club Tottenham to Atletico Madrid. This type of involvement with betting is extremely prohibited and the player ended up being suspended by the English Football Federation (FA) in December 2020.
