    That's a pretty huge payout for a Vegas book. You rarely see payouts larger than that these days. But hey, if you don't want that $125,000 when you win, I will happily collect for you!!!

    Without Wall back, for sure, I’m looking for 300/1! They STILL have to catch Orlando to get the 8 seed.

    Oh, I see what you mean. I agree that the Wiz have a less than one in two hundred fifty chance of winning ti all. But that doesn't mean Vegas is going to offer it! Last time I recall a Vegas line being far "off" from the reality of the event was the Mayweather-McGregor fight. And that number was only off because so many people bet on McGregor. Good luck with the Wiz! Hope you win big

    If I had MLB futures bets placed I'm assuming I'll get those refunded...

    Yes, for any futures bets that require a 162 game season such as win totals, player over/under props, etc. However, these types of futures bets may still have action if a truncated season happens:

    World Series winner
    Pennant winners
    Division winners
    HR champion
    Player vs. Player props (e.g. Trout vs Blackmon total hits, runs, stolen bases, homers, RBIs)

    FYI I tried to turn in my ticket on Saturday and they would not pay out my refund yet. Guy at the booth said I was the first one he had seen try it, but when the slip reader spit it back out, we both figured that they’re not setting up the computer system until the NBA season officially ends.

    Hmmm, wondering if they won't pay this out until the true end of the season, which might not be until October

    FWIW, here is what I confirmed today about how CET is handling NBA futures: wagers on NBA and conf champs are still action; regular season win totals are all refund; yes/no props on whether a team will make the playoffs are still in action; the "date of the event" for season totals and yes/no playoff props will be the last day of the regular season in the Orlando bubble (instead of early March when the season paused or April when the season was originally scheduled to end).

    In other words, pretty much what everyone expected. Well, at least I can still root against the Spurs making a playoff push in August. That is my best paying wager anyway

    Without having looked at the entire NBA schedule, what is the last day of the season? Would like to get refunded on season win total tix when I’m there in August 13-17

    I believe the plan right now is for the regular season to end on August 14. So you should be good to go on the 15th. But with everything these days, wait and see what happens

    My best friend has a futures bet he placed last August on the Clippers winning the championship. He is hopeful he can collect in 2021 lol

    This may have been asked and answered. I still have two futures bets alive from The Mirage. If they win, will they be honored?

    Depends always on the fine print. Minimum games played for qualification of a complete season is one. Like in baseball, sometimes it says a game must go a certain number of innings to have action. Sometimes this stuff is only listed at the counter when placing the bet.
    I always thought having the over on a mlb game where the score was 14-3 in the fourth and then called for rain....it's already over but no bet due to innings played / official game status. Ok they seem to cover the bases well.

    Am wondering if anyone has actually mailed in their future NBA bets for refunds yet, and what was the turnaround time?
    I'm holding onto to $1,100 in future bets from the Westgate Superbook, and don't anticipate showing up in person anytime soon to collect.
