    i would pull it all out via neteller. then i would send the general the $100 tony richkas owes him. then, i'd neteller sea urchin the 3 dimes panther owes him. then, i'd send whatever amount rodfather owes dogball to him.

    then, if there was anything left, i'd give it to a legit organization that helps starving kids in africa or someplace.

    just call me the r/x robin hood.

    Danny,

    Very interesting insights...my observations are similar but probably with less extreme numbers.

    If my 9 year-old daughter had to spend a day on a deserted island with either a randomly chosen Harley-Davidson biker or a randomly chosen priest, I'd choose the biker in no time flat. Switch the priest with teacher, doctor, judge, or any public official and my answer stays the same.

    BTW I voted "no" but my real answer is "it depends". If I knew one of the bosses personally and I had a decent relationship with him I would probably give back the money but in a typical case I wouldn't. And the more successful the book, the less I would hesitate.

    As much as I would like to think that I would report it, I would probably keep my mouth shut and keep playing with and give them a lot of action with it, so it would be easier to get away with it.
    IF you would ask for a big payout right away, most likely they would catch it.

    I am not sure I believe the majority of people would tell but I am pleased at these results, if they are actually true...

    Perhaps the antithesis of this would be to ask some bookmakers what % of gamblers have actually reported errors made in their favor?

    Why do I suspect the % would be less than what we have here?

    1)"Fvck the book before they fvck you"

    2)"Yeah like they would tell me if I made a 10k error in their favor"

    3)"No way in hell! but I would return an old lady her purse if I found one, and I would'nt even take the money"

    4)"Hell no I figure they owe me at least that from what I've lost"

    5)"Hell no and if anyone says they would their lying"

    6)"Hell no!! Do you know how much bonus whoring it takes to make a score like that?

    7)"Nope that will teach them for deleting my past post winner"

    8)"No! Circumventing limits is too hard of work to pass up a gift like that"

    9)"Shit know 10k moves me out of my moms basement and buys me a car that runs"

    9)"No way BSKILLER, Owen and the rest of the scum here would kill me"

    I was double credited a pretty good size wager and thought for sure they would catch the mistake. I placed no wagers and after a month the mistake was still in my account. Started playing and they never caught it. I got my brains beat out at this book after this happened so the next time I think I will tell them.

    Just give me the chance to steal from a casino without getting caught. Frig them money grubbing corporations. They will take every dollar from you and kick you to the curb when you are broke.

    Results (84 votes counted so far):

    YES, I WOULD TELL THEM.. 52/62%

    NO WAY IN HELL... 32/38%


    Kind of a shame actually, but atleast it is evidence & proof of some of the mentality here. It explains a few things.

    Cascade once credited me with someone elses 7 dime deposit. I told them immediately but it still took seveeral days for them to uncredit it and get it over to whomever it was supposed to go to.

    No way I'd keep a mistake like that UNLESS the book had cheated me in some way previously - but then what would I be doing still playing there? What I am saying is that if AcesGold re-opened and inadvertently credited me 10K too much I'd keep it, no doubt! But that is never going to happen and the only scenario I'd feel justified in doing something like that!

    JMHO

    It matters what book it is I have given back 5d and once MUCH MUCH MORE to cascade,Rio,Grande and Cbs. But if is a book that fvcks with me in any way they better be on the look out.

    With the sportsbooks all using the same lines now it is harder then ever to make some bread. This is why guys like Revere14 come up with new ways to beat the books. I am sure he would give the money back if there was an error in his favor <HR></BLOCKQUOTE>
    Krackman, you are good people.

    Not telling them wouldn't work anyways. Request a payout and they look over your account before they do a payout. Surely they would find the mistake.
