Anybody have luck with these?  Last year in vegas I placed a NY Giants futures bet for my buddy.  I am heading back again in 2 weeks and he asked me to cash it for him, however it is quite faded.  I doubt the bar code will read, and I can just barely make out the alphanumeric code above it (I think I got it anyways).  Any experience with this?

Yea as long as the numbers can be read you're good to go. I thought u only had 90 days after the event.

The future bets for the SB should still be in the computer system and the bar code is not important, it's the letters/numbers on the ticket. Most books do their best to "decode" those to pay the bet.

Faded is ok but these tickets must be cashed within a certain time frame, I'm guessing lack of action will send your faded slip up in smoke, don't delay next time, shame to leave money on the table as you did here

its actually 120 days past the date of the event not 90,  which was last week or so for the super bowl, even past the date the ticket will be cashed even if its hand paid.
