    Hello,

    In Coronation Street Jack Duckworth’s Yankee came up, winnings: about three grand.

    However, he has lost his betting slip and the nasty bookie has stated firmly, "No Ticket/Slip, No pay-out!!"

    It is years since I have used a High Street bookie, but if I lost a winning slip, I just had to re-write the bet, and they would pay me out. In later years there was form to fill in for the Managers assurance.

    Don’t these rules apply in Wetherfield?? <!– s:roll: –>:roll:<!– s:roll: –>

    regards a Very Sad doyley… <!– s:shock: –>:shock:<!– s:shock: –>

    regards,

    Dont see why he cant get paid out.

    The white copy will have his handwriting on and he could always report them to the gambling commision or bookmakers asscociation.

    Yet another example of a programme that hasn’t done it’s research when it comes to horse racing.

    The bookies in Albert Square is the best – it’s still one of those shops that has blacked out windows – and not a fruit machine or fobt machine in sight :lol:

    What have facts got to do with storylines?

    I remember on Eastenders they had a race, I think it was between Grant Mitchell and the actor now in Holby. Someone was offering prices, Grant was favourite at "only" 2/1 where as 10/1 was available on the other bloke.

    Is there anyone here that would not back them both?

    I once lost my on course ticket, I knew which bookie I had the bet with, the horse and amount. I just had to wait until the last race, just in case someone found it and claimed the winnings. But got my money no problem.

    You were lucky then, Gingertipster, as my dad had the same problem at Chepstow and had to wait 6 months before he got his winnings.

    Corrie do very little research on their horse racing storylines.I remember(a good few years ago) when Jack and the gang from the Rovers went to Thirsk races-They were cheering on their horse which looked the likely winner…till it fell!

    And what about Steve,who had no knowledge of horse racing, meeting a pro gambler and in a very short space of time becoming a pro himself.There was the ridiculous scene of Jack(many years a punter) begging Steve in the bookies for a clue as to what would win the next race,lol.

    Whether it be non specialist newspapers or television, whenever any specialist subject is included, there are invariably serious errors.

    I generally find inaccuracies in most newspapers and TV shows in areas where I have any in- depth knowledge.

    A few weeks ago, the Coronation Street shop was displaying the RP card for Redcar. A bit breezy there in February.

    Jack should, of course, be paid out without any fuss, although it does raise an interesting legal point. Is the holder of a betting slip or lottery ticket the legal owner of any payment due to the ticket? What if it is found or stolen? I think the ticket is merely a receipt and gives no legal rights to the holder. If there is a betting ‘contract’, it exists without the issue of a ticket.

    Seemingly, or so I am led to believe, Paul, Jack’s dodgy grandson, finds the missing slip and cashes in – without letting on. Ohhhh ! Could be big trouble afoot down t’weatherfield way. :lol:

    Surely it is up to the individual shop, if they have made the no ticket no payout rule then that is up to them. I think most bookmakers will pay you without a ticket but I bet there are some around that do have that rule in place.

    Can’t believe this forum has sunk to the depths of discussing Coronation Street and East Enders. :roll:
    What a bunch of old women. :lol:

    Its shocking isnt it, if I had my way then we would be talking about neighbours and Home and Away. After all Neighbours has a regular character who is a professional gambler and often visits the local track. Frazer has placed a 40k win bet on that program so we really should not be discussing some poxy Yankee for 3k in Coronation Street.

    Fraser has given up gambling to pursue a more honest living (their words not mine) as a taxi driver. Have you not been watching since it switched to Channel 5.

    Looks like BF forum type threads are becoming a regular feature at the Theracingforum

    Hello,

    No problem Marb, I tend to agree with you about the standard of posts. :?

    But as I have been diagnosed with Multi Personality Syndrome, I can safely say it was the personality called Beryl who posted about Corrie. I, Derek, can tell you this now, as Beryl has popped down to the Gala Bingo Hall :)

    All the best, from Joe, Oh! sorry, yours, Judith….. :(

    Note to oneself: We have got to get ourselves sorted out!!!!! 8)

    regards,

    Happened to me several times too Ginge both on the course and in betting shops and never had a problem………..this is some thread though ……Valid point and this type of thing is in the movies and on TV everyday cos they don’t go to the trouble of researching things properly..90% of people watching don’t bet so they get away with it…as long as it’s entertaing I suppose it doesn’t matter…having said that how difficult is it to reasearch things and get them right? ….People are piad fortunes to make movies and do research to keep them as factual as possible …. Mel Gibson supposed to be speaking Thai in "Air America" and he was saying everything back to front……………….he couldn’t even say Thank you,,"Khawp khun Khrap" correctly he said "Khun Khawp khun" which had a Thai friend laughing referring to him as an idiot……..paid for old rope some of these people
