      I am not sure what teacake58 is asking either, but now that the internet gambling bill has been passed into law, I wonder what will happen to betslips.com.

      Anyone have any thoughts?

          To all online gamblers, playing anywhere. Let me say this, I gamble online and there is a certain amount of risk involved. I would recommend not keeping a large amount of cash in your account. I also have claimed all my online winnings on my taxes, which you may or may not choose to do. An lastly be prepeared and expect the worst. I don't want to hear any boo-who'ing when your account gets frozen and maybe the man comes a knocking.

            Hi Eddie,

            That's some good advice, and it applies to everything I do on the Internet.  Always be cautious.

            I'm not sure that the law is as bad as you might think though.  Check out today's News section, there is a good story on it.

              I have a friend that LIVES on phonebet.com, he says the new laws won't affect him at all.

               

              I e-mailed phonebet.com and asked them what the new laws will do to them, if they reply I will post it.

                Phonebet.com replied and told me 'the gambling bill does not affect horse racing'.

                  I guess the question I have about BETSLIPS and any other entity like it is this:

                  In the past (before Betslips came into existence), there have been recorded instances of ticket purchasing services closing shop and absconding with the millions won by a customer who placed a winning (full jackpot) bet [money received, ticket bought, ticket won, ticket service closed].

                  So what protection is there (if any) for a purchaser of a ticket having full legal recourse against a ticket service who should close shop and claim & cash the ticket as their own?

                    None. That's why the best place to purchase your tickets is a local licensed retailer. Wink

                        Greg,

                        I know as much about this industry as just about anyone, and I know of no such thing.  That's pretty irresponsible to write something like that, unless you have some kind of proof.

                          People who claim that a ticket service can (or has) run off with a jackpot is clueless about how it works.

                            I have never heard of such a thing.  The only incident on the radar was when Regal Service Bureau bought a ticket for a customer in the Texas Lottery which won a jackpot and the state of Texas denied payment because their rules said they could.

                            All too often the "they say" we hear things from are the little jackasses that live in our heads.  BobP

                              I also have never heard of such a thing..in fact all if not most bend over backwards to clear up any problems.
