I just wanted to ask what is the case when I have verbally stated that I'm willing to accept an offer but then I've decided to go with a better one that came across from a different company? Is there a chance that the first company say that I'm binded and cannot do that?
I'm guessing that is not considered reneging, is it? And by the way, in cases where the contract is signed and it is an actual renege, except for being unprofessional is there any other formal implication that might come along?

Highly unlikely that there will be any other implications except on your perceived reputation for anyone involved.
If you have only verbally accepted and not signed a contract then nothing could be done anyway. If you have signed a contract the organisation could pursue legal action but I have never heard of this happening and I've seen plenty of reneged offers in my time.
For the grad market they reckon about 8% of offers are reneged. It's a problem for recruiters and so they expect it from time to time. But ultimately although they will be peeved that you have delayed their recruitment process, and that they might have to start that process again, it's better doing that and hiring the right person than you starting the job and then either not being happy and/or having a significant chance of leaving early on.
