    Las Vegas And Future Bets

    Is it common in Las Vegas for casinos to refuse bets? I put down 4 bets today in Laughlin, Nevada for future bets on the NCAA tournament. Each time, they got on the phone to call Vegas to get an ok. On the first one, I went to the Golden Nugget. I tried to bet $500 on Iowa St @ 30-1. They would only let me bet up to $333 since a win above that amount would result in a collection of over $10,000. I ran into the same situation @ the Aquarius. I was able to bet $500 on Villanova @ 25 to 1, but they had to call Vegas for an ok. The same situation as I bet $400 on Notre Dame @ 30 to 1. They spent an inordinate amount of time on the phone for my bet on Arkansas @ 80-1. I tried to bet $500, but they would only accept $300.

    Does this situation normally happen in Vegas? It seems like in Laughlin, they will only take a futures bet if the collection is less than $10,000. I'm wondering if this happens much in Vegas. I used to be able to go to Laughlin and put down bets where I could collect well over $50,000 with no problem. I'm wondering if this is just a Laughlin issue or if this happens in Vegas also.

    Thanks in advance for any replies.

    Well this guy shut everyone up

    I guess they have stricter risk management up in that area first downtown or the strip

    Also don't forget they don't have the volume

    Should have saved the Arkansas money. 0% chance of winning it all.

    A few weeks ago, Arkansas was 500-1. Next time I do a future bet, I'll drive the extra 1.5 hours and bet in Vegas. I got Arkansas at 80-1, but another casino had it @ 300-1 and would only let me bet $33. The casinos in Laughlin will not let you bet where you're winnings are over $10,000. If you're ever doing a future, the best bet is to go to Vegas, not Laughlin. There are only about 6 casinos in Laughlin and at least 2 of them have that $10,000 rule. For Arkansas, one place had them at 300-1 and the other had it @ 80-1. What's the use of betting @300-1, when you can only bet $33. The bets I did make, some were over the $10,000 mark. Basically is you request to bet $500 on a future, they'll probably ok you for $300.

    Maybe I'll get lucky and one of my 4 picks will hit. But I will definitely go to Vegas for my future bets.

    odds look great, solid teams, now u need to pray 2-3 of them dont end up in the same bracket that will sting a bit.
