    I won a future Super Bowl bet. Took that ravens back in April. My ticket is from ph and it says I have 120 days for pari-mutuel or 30 days from the end of the meet which ever comes first. Then it says non pari mutuel and sports tickets are valid for a year. Just wanted to make sure I have the year. I am going in march but that will be about 45 days after the Super Bowl. Could someone just confirm I have a year

    If somebody here says "Yes you have a year" because they think you do and then you get to Planet Hollywood in March and they say no you didn't, what are you going to do?

    For something like this I would just call them directly and get an answer you can be 100% confident in.

    You should have 1 year from the date of the action, which in this case was feb.3.
    But as Auggie said, call to make sure, better safe than sorry. You can always mail in the ticket if you think time is running short.

    There's no way they don't honor this ticket in march.

    But I agree with everyone else...call to be sure, and get the name of the person who tells you the answer.

    I've dealt with this many times. Each book is different in the amount of time that you have to cash the winners, but they also spell it out clearly on the back of each ticket. In your case: Then it says non pari mutuel and sports tickets are valid for a year.

    So --- you will be fine!

    I called the front desk and nobody knew the answer. Said they couldn't transfer me to the sports book. They didn't have a number. Has something to do with gaming laws

    Absolutely no problem. There's no way every Super Bowl futures ticket is going to be cashed in 30 days. They generally are good for a year. 45 days is nothing to worry about. At all.
