Why You Should Keep Your Bet Receipt – January 22

Updated:

When you place your bet at your sportsbook, you will receive a bet receipt. Your bet receipt, or ticket as you may hear it called, is a confirmation of your wager. The bet receipt will include the date and time the bet was placed as well as all of the details about your wager (or wagers). If you make multiple bets at a single time, the bet receipt will reflect that and contain the information for all of your bets.

The Chiefs beat the Bills in yesterday’s AFC divisional round playoff

If you bet on the Chiefs to beat the Bills yesterday, for example, you would have received a bet receipt. The bet receipt can come in different forms, which we will discuss in the next section. These tickets can be kept to ensure that you get paid on a winning bet. Bettors should keep the bet receipt for any wager that is going to pay out big money. If there are ever any discrepancies, the bettor has proof of the transaction and all of its details.

Where to Find Your Bet Receipt

If you happen to go to a physical sportsbook and place a wager, you will receive a physical bet receipt. It’s just like making a purchase at a store. When you check out and pay for your items, you receive a receipt of your transaction. Today’s modern bettor is most likely placing bets from his or her smartphone or other mobile device. That means there is no physical bet receipt, but there is one for every wager a bettor ever places.

Let’s say you log into your sportsbook account on your smartphone. You start looking at lines and odds on NBA games, for example. You find a few wagers that you like and you place your bets. The bet receipt for your transaction can take a few different forms, but it is a digital receipt.

Always keep your bet receipt

At some sportsbooks, a separate window will pop up with the bet receipt in it. This can be saved for future reference. Other online sportsbooks will keep an archive of all of your bets. You may find it listed as “transaction history” or “settled bets.” Bettors can access their betting history and find the bet receipt for every wager they have ever made at that specific sportsbook.

A Winning Bet Receipt for Everyone

If you had the same bet receipt as Sas Insider, you cashed in yesterday for $745. That’s a solid day. Maybe you simply hopped on the back of Coach Rick, who finished No. 2 on the board on Saturday. The Coach followed that performance up with another 5-1 day and winnings of $390. If you could win $390 on a consistent basis, would you take it? 

That’s the possibility when you partner with Sports Hub expert handicappers. It was another outstanding day for our cappers. Our friends at Scores & Stats and the Sas Insider finished No. 1 on yesterday’s leaderboard. A number of Sports Hub exclusive cappers were in yesterday’s top-5 and top-10.

Let’s take a look.

What’s Happening in Sports

After a great weekend of NFL playoff football, it’s time to kick back and check out what’s trending in not just football, but all sports. There will be some NFL news throughout this week leading up to the AFC and NFC championship games on Sunday. There is plenty of other news from around the sportsworld too. Remember, it never hurts to have too much information when you’re betting on sports.

Here’s what is trending today.

  • VanDerveer sets record: A few days ago, I told you about Stanford head women’s basketball coach Tara VanDerveer. Yesterday, her Cardinal team beat Oregon State 65-56. That win was the 1,203rd of her career and it places her No. 1 on the NCAA career wins list.
  • Amateur wins PGA event: Nick Dunlap is a 20-year-old sophomore at Alabama. Yesterday, he won The American Express to become the first amateur winner of a PGA Tour event in over 30 years. The last guy to do it? Phil Mickelson.
  • Chiefs: Buffalo K Tyler Bass missed a game-tying field goal in the final minutes of play and Kansas City earned a trip to its seventh straight AFC championship game with a 27-24 win over the Bills yesterday.
  • Lions: The Detroit Lions are playing for an NFC championship next week. That almost doesn’t sound possible. The Lions had not won a playoff game since 1991. Now, they will face San Francisco on Sunday for a right to play in the Super Bowl LVIII. Detroit beat Tampa Bay yesterday 31-23.
