Just a quick reminder. If you're like me, you made a few long shot NCAA tournament wagers last season. If they happen to be in Nevada, the deadline is approaching (event date of title game) for you to send them in for refunds.

I had an XFL future at Westgate and some long shot NCAA hoops tickets scattered around town. They totaled just a couple thousand, so I hung onto them, hoping I'd be making a safe trip to LV, but that didn't happen. This last week, I finally sent the last of them in.

The Westgate ticket specifically requested registered mail, which starts at $15. I did send it registered, although I think for any tickets under $500, registered is overkill. Certified should usually be fine.

The last two stops, Circa and William Hill, did not specifically request registered on the tickets, so I just sent them on their way via regular mail. If the tickets had been for more than $500, I would probably have opted for certified, at least.

There are reasons for printing "Pay by Mail" on all tickets sent in this way. I have some info regarding a problem one property had about 30 years ago with mail in tickets, so just take simple easy precautions like writing "Pay by Mail" on the tickets and keeping some copies.

The XFL refunds are sad, as I had the top team who would have been favored in the four-team playoffs. Had them at +350 in LV and +650 from pre-season offshore, so that was a bad beat refund. The hoops tickets were all mega-longshots, which is why the tickets were small, although I did like BYU's chances to win a couple games.

The point is -- make sure you get your refunds!

Is a thing again. Dwayne Johnson recently bought it and announced they will resume in the Spring of 2022. Expect one or more reality series leading up to it.
