So ,I possess(ed?) a winning World Cup ticket worth roughly $300. I followed the sports book procedure on the back of the ticket (Ballys) to the letter and sent them the ticket certified mail about a month ago to receive my "mail pay". Since then: Nothing. Now, I haven't tracked the certified mail yet (I'm trying to remain calm...). But that certainly will be the next step. I guess I'm just wondering how long this should take? I would think even the busiest sports book would've responded within two weeks, so now I'm becoming concerned. Anyone have any experience with mail pay from a sports book, good, bad or indifferent would help. And what possible recourse I might have if the sports book "lost" it? I made a photo copy of the ticket just to try and avoid any "he said, she said" situ. Thanks.
