    That's not unusual. Wagers or total wagers over a certain amount require manager approval. You didn't experience anything out of the ordinary

    They just need to verify with the manager. they just have a 5k or 10k limit on games per person and don't want you to bet more? Why I have no idea. I have bet 10k on baseball and as long as they know who is placing it. It should not be an issue. I think it is because they didn't know who you are. Its like going to a Black jack table and betting Yellow chips. First thing they will ask is your card or ID.

    At least they don't do that in sports book.

    5 $1000 bets for mlb, the sports books shouldn't bat an eye at. What books were you placing these plays at?

    I agree that 5 $1k bets in baseball shouldn't matter unless you was downtown.

    They can. Sometimes they refuse large bets on some small action bets (like certain props). But again, calling over the manager to approve the bet is because you exceeded whatever amount requires manager approval. Its SOP

    The managers remember people who make large bets. They know who the runners are and keep tabs on how much they are moving on any given game.

    For bigger bets, The smaller or no-name schools in cfb is where they give problems. You are correct about them limiting action on the lesser bet games.

    I don't disagree. But the OP is betting MLB.

    This has something to do with it. They rarely see that type of action there, especially on baseball.Had this been and NFL game, no problem. Suprisingly, alot of the books sweat the bet. Hell, LVH wont even let me bet soccer for more than 300 bucks.

    It all has to do with how much money in total is taken in on the game. They dont want the exposure of everyone being on one side of the game, they want to limit that. Their whole idea is to keep the money equal on both sides and live on the vig and a nice living it is.

    It's about you possibly being a runner for someone plus the size of the wagers. I needed a manager approval at a Strip book for a $200 wager on an NBA total that wasn't circled.
    Contrary to popular belief about these books/corporations, they really sweat this action.
    The only game where it's come one come all is NFL.
