I just won a huge Parlay bet. I should be jumping around but I feel I'm going to get robbed in one way or another. I'm happy, but very nervous.

I'm only leaving this message here for the record.
If I get stiffed by this people I will fight it. I will let the world know. If they play nice I will give them credit as well. I hope everything runs smoothly.

Anyone here has experience on handling large winnings with online sports books? Any advice?

I'm thinking of taking all the winnings and quit. (although beted.com has that $3,000 a week limit). That would be over a year of weekly withdrawals ARGHHH!

Nice job... but there are two missing plays between the NYY play and SEA under play.  $500 in a 10 teamer.  WOW!

Yes there are a couple plays missing. i deleted two plays randomly. It just doesn't feel right me exposing all that. I'm only playing it safe.

Call them.  Talk to the head guy.  If you have problems, talk to Sportsbookreview.  Never played there bu Beted is a B- at SBR.  That's not too bad.  If you can only do 3K a week then do 3k a week.  Maybe ask them if they do transfers to other sportsbooks.

Congrats!

You will get screwed for sure. They will probably tell you there is a limit on what you can win off of a parlay and my guess is it will be less than 50,000. I don't know for sure and I don't know too much about the inside practices of these books but that is just my feeling on what they will pull.

Have had terrible experience with this book. Suggest no one play there. I hope you get paid though, but I agree with D85.

you will not be getting 6 figures...

I would be cool tho if you could negotiate with them to get only half of your money, but having it deposited in one lump sum like in a swiss bank account...

Have to say... been gambling for 35 years, never heard of anyone playing 10 team $500 parlays... let alone hitting one!

Kinda hard to even imagine! I play lots of parlays... and I don't even dream that big... but if I did... I SURE AS HELL WOULD (READ THE RULES, CALL SPORTSBOOK MANAGER) BEFORE I MADE THE WAGER... to make sure I was going to get paid!!

Trotter makes an excellent point. However, if they are WILLING to accept the wager, they should be OBLIGATED to pay it off. Unfortuantely since internet gambling isn't regulated in this great country of ours, you are probably screwed. Awesome that you hit, to bad it wasn't in Vegas.

I would start looking for someone to go down to whatever foreign country they work out of and offer then 50k to 100k to kill someone, anyone that works there if they try and screw you.

You will never forgive yourself if they get away with it....but if they die trying to get away with it...then you will be the friggin MAN!!!!

Maybe you can withdraw 3k  and gamble like $100 of the rest weekly. I mean, even if you're entitled to the money, they won't feel too good to see it all go away. But if you put some of it back by gambling, I don't think there will be a problem.

This is why, I don't think this is true. If you were playing with that kind of money, wouldn't you look into this before placing the bet? If it was me and I had the doe to play $500 parley's, then I would also have the doe to go to Vegas and place the wagers.

No high stakes player would do business with BetED, they are garbage.

Ridiculous vig on wagers over there, another BLOWDOG or BETUS

You my friend are an absolute idiot and have way too much time on your hands trying to convince us "real" wagerers on this site that you really placed a 10 team parlay for $500....either you are really full of yourself or you are the biggest moron I have ever seen place a bet...I dont believe you and I find it hard to believe that anyone else on here does...You could have just told us the truth and said you bet $5 and hit a 10 teamer which i still wouldnt believe but it would make more sense than $500..$500 on a 10 team parlay (and won)Think you fell a little far off the rocker there buddy

I have no reason to lie. I did do any photoshop crap, which to be frank I don't know how to do anyways.
I'm seeking advice from Sportsbookreview.com as well.I never said it was the smartest bet, but i hit it and they should pay. I'm 100% sure they would've taken my money had I lost. But I won.

UPDATE:
This morning my password for Beted.com is not working. I tried calling customer service and they keep saying that I should email accounts@beted.com that they can't help me. So, I resent an email right now, with a more upset tone and I'm still waiting for their reply.
They also claim they don't have a phone number for the accounts department, which is total bullsh*t if you ask me. This is already starting to look bad.

I'm thinking I should get a lawyer, but since this is CostaRica, I don't know.

I only chose that darn site because it is the TOP recommended website in this site's Staff recommendations. WTF. Any Admins can explain why is that if they have such a funny way of evading and treating people?

Your password isnt working because you dont have a beted.com account and which is the reason why this is all a fairytale And let me guess you own your own business and do very well for yourself....Are you related to Sammy the clown?
