The size of the wager doesn't matter. The books won't accept any bets they consider to be correlated. If they had a policy of accepting correlated bets for small amounts, but not large ones, we'd all be over there placing the same small correlated bet over and over as many times as we could.

Thanks folks for your feedback I will let you know what happens. One question are there some books in Vegas that are more liberal than others with these bets are all of them governed by the same rules



My guess is that if you're denied at one property you will be denied at another owned by the same corporation. So go downtown or, if you're willing to walk a bit, have a set route through the strip starting at Cosmo or Bellagio going north.

Please get back to us with what you find and where you find it.

Haven't been in Vegas lately (j/k, haven't been there ever), but if there are bookies there which will take a parlay like this I'm off on a plane in a split second :)

There is absolutely no way a house calling themselves a bookie will allow such parlay bet(wins first half/wins game is particularly sweet, yum-yum :) ). In my country and also vast majority of online bookies wont allow a parlay of ANY kind of bets with two or more legs from the same event,or will simply offer you THEIR odds for that(for example first half/game - no chance you get to parlay the pre-KO odds - they will give you correctly calculated reduced odds:) )

A blatant example(100% correlated) of why they can't allow such parlays is for instance in a soccer game a bettor parlays the draw (moneyline) with total number of goals - even. Assuming the odds include 5 - 15% house edge this will give the punter >50% edge on the draw outcome.

Some North America licensed online bookies still do allow some parlays on bets from the same event and they seem to estimate the level of correlation individually. But the days of making easy money online from NFL and college football are gone. Vegas locals may still take a cor-parlay here and there, but even they won't take the 4 bet parlay as outlined.

Stop in the Pioneer and look for a guy playing Video blackjack, he will be the one losing all his big bets along with ripped up hockey bets tickets on the floor.

SERIOUSLY, you tried?

You didn't get the message?

I know you probably though you were the first to come up with this. Unfortunately its hard to come up with a new system that hasn't been tried.

Especially this, its to obviously correlated.


Zcore might book it.

All day long if I owned a book. Then make sure I get enough wagers on the other side to offset it if I need to. If I offerred lines, I'd be happy to take your money any way you want to give it to me.

There's not only 2 sides to a 4 team parlay. Our friend the OP probably would have lost $1,000 if he had been allowed to place the wagers he wanted.
