Good Morning All,

I have a question. A friend of mine had me bet for him $10 on the Cubbies to win the series last year when I went to Vegas. I will be going back in 3 weeks and asked if he wanted me to redeem it for him if he wins. He said no he wanted to keep the ticket as he is a diehard Cubs fan. I was wondering if it would be possible for me to redeem the ticket without them marking the ticket in any way so he can keep it.

Let me know if anybody knows if this can be done.
I got a plan, we take all your picks we reverse them like one of those twilight zone episodes where everything is the opposite. You say "black" we go white.

It can't be done. They can make a copy of the ticket, but if he wants to cash it, they will be taking the original for accounting purposes.

Actually I might disagree (at least in years past) I have lost 2 $500+ tickets and just before the ticket was expired I talked to the sports book manager told him the bet, appointment time, date and bet amounts. They somehow searched the bets flagged it in the computer and gave me the money after the ticket expired. Note: I kinda knew the sports book manager and he knew I frequently bet there so he knew I wasn't pulling any shenanigans.

I think if he takes a picture of the ticket with him holding it says he lost it there's a chance they will give him the money once they know it's been expired and no one could cash it. Might not work but if he's not cashing it anyway what's he got to lose?

Thanks Axel, I know that a Cubs ticket with a WS win is priceless for him, but hell it was +450 so why not try to get the $55.00 as well.

That being said, the way they played last night...

Yea, you could go the "lost ticket" way. That's an option.

But depending on the book, the process may take longer than others too. It isn't always instant.

I'm not suggesting or endorsing this, however, people have counterfeited forum/twitter/FB posted winning slot/sports tickets and cashed them.

I'm not sure what the law is if you do something like that with your own ticket with no intent to defraud. (I'm sure the ticket says something about tampering or counterfeiting)

Just don't call me from jail for bail.

If you could make a good duplicate, then make 7 of them. Mix them up (but only you know the real one) have him pick one that way he can choose to believe he actually has the original. If he actually picks the real one then it's fate, he just keeps it. Make an agreement with him and a family member that if he doesn't pick the original you will cash it and give the family member the money, but they can't ever tell him either way. No matter what, tell him he picked the original. As long as he believes it doesn't matter does it? Hell, just make a duplicate. Get the ticket and tell him you're going to frame it for him. Then swap it out, frame the fake one, cash the original. Then just get him something worth $500 for his birthday or whatever.

Ya, I know, and it may not even work for sure, but it sounds like they have nothing to lose since he's attached to the ticket.

I am thinking of having him take a picture of the ticket and saying that I took a picture of ticket but lost it before coming to Vegas and can they take pity and cash it. Probably won't work, but I got nothing to lose. The question then is, should I give him the cash since he refuses to give me the ticket to cash.

Split it with him?

Perhaps. I think it will depend on how easy the process is. If it is very easy I will give it to him in whole. If it takes any rigmarole then I will take half.
