    I bet the number of wagers they get next week will be massively increased.... Good marketing strategy!

    They added up the bets on GB, factored in what percentage of tickets are already in the garbage and decided it was worth it for the publicity

    Yep, a great move, as every Vegas board I frequent (VMB, Five Hundy's FB page, Vegas Chatter, etc) and every degenerate sports better that I know on FB have all forwarded this.

    A great move.

    Guess depends how much in wagers they had. If a popular sports book and a lot of wagers this could be very costly. They probably didn't have much and figured the national attention would put that loss as more of advertising cost then anything.

    HAHA!!!!

    That makes the loss even worse (assuming the ticket has vanished or been destroyed). Like losing TWICE.

    I give the casino props for a creative and gutsy offer, though.

    This was great Marketing because they said that you have to bet there on Sunday in person. So they get all of this free publicity but will not be refunding that many tickets because not many people stay week after week.
