Reno Doctor won $609,000 on Kentucky Derby Bets, offered only $35,000 due to Sportsbook's Cap

Tags: doctor, horse racing, Kentucky Derby, William Hill
Posted on 22 May 2019 by "T".
An ophthalmologist in Reno thought he won a whopping $609,000 on the 145th Kentucky Derby; however, a huge chunk of it instantly became thin air as it turns out his tickets were worth only $35,000. What caused this misunderstanding? Well, he didn't know the rules. This year's Kentucky Derby could be described as a dramatic mess. ‘Maximum Security' was able to finish first but was disqual[...]   Read more » Reno Doctor won $609,000 on Kentucky Derby Bets, offered only $35,000 due to Sportsbook's Cap

of course a very sad story .... feel yourself the winner of winning more than half a million dollars .... and in the end some rule lowers him down and the winnings amount to only $ 35,000 ... This is of course very sad ... It seems to me that it’s wrong that there are different rules for Bids in different regions .... But of course He needed to be more careful when placing a bet

This betting house was not supposed to accept that bet, if the rules clearly stated this. It is ugly to accept a bet and then refuse to pay a win, just because there is a limit for exotic bets. This doctor had to be refused from the beginning, and then to be allowed to bet the maximum admitted. The blame is the bookmaker.

That was bad news for the players, but unfortunately, it was in the rules.
Many gambling sites have a cap in many games.
Depends on the game and the company.
Here all games besides lotto and joker which have a jackpot, have a cap.

The drop of course for him was huge. I can only imagine his reaction when he found out about it.

por supuesto, una historia muy triste ... siéntete el ganador de ganar más de medio millón de dólares ... y al final alguna regla lo baja y las ganancias ascienden a solo $ 35,000 ... Esto es, por supuesto, muy triste ... Me parece que está mal que haya diferentes reglas para las Ofertas en diferentes regiones ... Pero, por supuesto, necesitaba ser más cuidadoso al realizar una apuesta.

She, is just a girl of 19 years who did not learn the rules of this site. The rules have not been learned nor by that unimaginable bookmaker, who allowed that bet of 2700 dollars. The rules are only followed by correct people, but here we must be correct persons and to speak only in engish language. TheJonas2, about what you say with this bet not the woman is guilty. She bet, but the betting house could say that there must be a lower bet to be accepted. This doctor deserve $ 609 k not $35 k. Sad

They always screw you over with things like this. Always. Online as well.

it's very sad that casino and poker bookmakers will do everything to pay less to the winners ... will find some Tricks or write such clever rules that it is very difficult to understand them ... the bookmaker saw that the bet was made wrong but still accepted the money ... .and did not suggest that a mistake was made ...

its same like you had rule in betting shops in serbia 10,15 years ago,where you could bet on some game,especially if you play big oods of football from 1/2 or 2/1 and then when you come to pick up money,they can say that this match was fixed and that dont want to pay you money and they just back what you invested!ofcourse its stupid,when you have somethin on ticket,but they can do whatever they want when law give them!

I expect to start a lawsuit in this case because this Doctor from Reno desreves all money not only $35 k. There are many cases every year where people do not win as much as they can because they are being invented certain rules, to make casinos and sports betting houses to offer less money. This is not fair.

There is no reason proceeding with a lawsuit, since he is not gonna take a single cent more
out of it.
The rules are rules, and since there was a cap, they dont have to pay nothing more
than the maximum.
If he didnt know the rules, that is his problem, not companies.
And you should know that many gambling sites, online and not have cap,
in almost every game. It is their right to do so, and if you play, it means you agree with their
terms.

There were posters on the wall explaining this situation when he made this bet, no court will be going forward with this case.

As long as that operator has accepted this bet, he made a mistake. The doctor is not guilty. Why this operator received the money, when he knew about that bet would not be accepted? When it comes to cashing, betting house receives any bet, even if not all are accepted, but when it comes to paying the winner, something is not right. The operator had to accept an amount less than $ 2700 and now everything was ok.

What exactly are you talking about. They had and still have rules about it.
It was him who did a mistake by not knowing the whole situation about the betting
and the payout. If he cant see the rules, then he need glasses.
Cause i bet he can read since he has managed to become a doctor somehow...
