    I asked if they just went through & marked L on everything without checking to see if people had won.

    They said that they would have caught it later on tonight.

    I don't trust em at all.

        I've been reporting their terrible service for a long time, but surprisingly so many people just don't care.  I simply don't get it. 

        As a general philosophy, I utterly refuse to go through life supporting people who scam others.  No matter what personal gain I would get, I refuse to support anyone like that company with my patronage.

        For example, if a certain food chain treated their employees poorly or was ripping people off, I would refuse to ever buy anything there, even if my favorite food in the world was sold there.

        It's really too bad that everyone would not take a principled stand on that web site and tell them to take a hike.

        It's like I said in another post:  when you finally come to the end of the road, it's not what you have that matters, it's what you've done.

          Actually, I'm confused. First you show NY Mid DAY...and that WAS a loser. THen you show NJ mid day, which WAS 959.

            "Actually, I'm confused. First you show NY Mid DAY...and that WAS a loser. THen you show NJ mid day, which WAS 959."

            This is the kind of mistake you see all over the online casino forums, people scream they were cheated and others pointing out things like this . . .

            What we should learn is keeping records of what we do, printing screen shots of what we really bet not what we thought we bet and checking a second source to see if we won.

            Every day at the supermarket I see people handing in lotto tickets to see if they won anything!  That they don't already know whether they won is amazing !! If they are that clueless it makes me wonder how often the clerk says they won a 3# prize when it was really a 4# prize and pockets the difference !!!  BobP

              I agree BobP! I always check my own tickets. I don't just hand them over and expect the clerks to do something that I can easily do myself. Less people would get scammed if they would just be a bit more cautious.

                Lottaloot admitted she didn't copy and paste her bets to save them......actually, she is lucky they did pay her......

                No matter how much in a hurry you are, if you go there, you need to copy and paste your bets on your computer in Word, Notepad or Excel...............they honor the bet if they don't catch it when you call and give them the ticket number of the win.  I have preached the saving of your bets for months now...and somehow people just aren't listening......no system is fail-proof....mistakes do get made. COPY and PASTE, folks...takes me maybe 1 minute to do the whole procedure.

                I have been playing there for months.......and out of those bets...only 2 got messed up......and they corrected it on the spot when I called them with the ticket number.

                  Mistake made

                  I am still learning to cut & paste here.  Thought that I had pasted NJ

                  Just pasted the wrong one..is all.  Too late to post the correct one now...They already corrected it.  But they did not initally pay me is the point that I was trying to make.  They marked them all as losers.

                      Ive played with them for a year now and only once did they overlook a playslip to which I sent my saved page to have them correct the error.  I really dont think they're trying to cheat you out $225 when I know people who've won $9000 and have been paid.

                        I know someone who won almost $50,000 dollars on that site and they paid them with no problem. Yes, they make mistakes. I have been burned a few times myself but they have always corrected their mistakes when it is brought up to them. They have never denied me after it was addressed and it was handled quickly. Like everyone has said, watch your bets. It is no different than going to the riverboat. I've had dealers make mistakes at the roulette table a couple of times. It was harder to get my money from them than the quarter place.

                        Todd,

                        Most of us are stuck with only being able to play in one state. If you get any money from the quarter place, that is money you would have otherwise not been able to make. I can place bets in 4 other states or 1 in my own for the same price. I'll take the chance I might have to call them once in a while to have those kind of odds. If you can come up with a P3/4 company that you feel can do any better I'll be glad to check it out but until then...

                          I agree with Bryan.  The site will correct their mistakes.  You need to keep records and double check your bets before making them.  Haste makes waste in any enterprise.  One phone call usually corrects the situation.

                          I have made errors in the past placing bets but it was my own fault.  I accept responsibility when I mess up.

                          I would rather have 900 to 1 odds any day and do my homework than have 500 to 1 odds that don't work with my system.  I play a lot of numbers, often 100 or more, but I win 90% of the time.  I would rather chalk up a small profit consistently than hope for a big win once a week.  Any business, if they were honest, would kill for a 25% profit.

                            Hey guys it's about choices. I enjoy being able to play otherr states and have won up to as much as $1800 at times never had any problems but I do cover my rear end. Ms. Pat
