  • Bowmans and Nascar

    I have a question for whoever. I have a local friend who took Kennseth at 40-1 at Bowmans. The deal was though they could only bet him for 25 bucks. Said they couldn't let him win over 1000 on Kennseth. What the heck is that about? I make lots of bets in nascar and the pay-out(s) are over a thousand. I was just wondering if anyone had ever ran into this problem with Bowmans? Granted this guy has been on a tremendous run, and only wagers at Bowmans. In fact he basically only bets nascar. Maybe he is considered a sharpie to them LMAO. Wish I would have known they told him that before the race started. I would have bet #17 myself just on suspicion alone

    I was told a rumor that perhaps they are being bought out...perhaps not looking to lose any money for the time being. Not sure this is true. Anyone?

      Plain and simple ..... As some of you know they are sweating the money again......$25 max. bets now huh? Wow! Just amazes me or better yet IT SHOULDN'T AMAZE ME.

        I believe that Bowman's is trying to top--or shall I say "bottom"--Intertops for the lowest limits in sportsbetting. On early morning baseball games, Intertops, I believe, has a $50 limit. Now that Gary Bowman has a $25 limit on some wagers, he has effectively undercut European rival Intertops. I'm so excited about this one-downsmanship, I'm going to celebrate by lighting up one of Gary's latest cigars: the El Stinko.

          I wonder if they would let me open an account there in Pesos, so I could at least feel like I'm betting something.

            Nice try Reno but you could have bet $1,100 at Intertops on Matt Kenseth if you desired and would have received your 40k plus.

            I suggest you look at Intertops' limits again. For most sports they are fairly good, although the majority of bettors aren't limit players.

              Yeah, Reno would have gotten his 40k along with a letter saying that his play was no longer welcome and the check's in the mail.

              I signed up with Intertops in March of 99 right before March Madness. I talked to a phone rep there and was told that the limits for tournament games were going to be a lot higher than the $250 they took during the season. When I couldn't bet more than $250 on a side for the entire tournament, I closed my account with them after waiting 30 days for my check to clear.

              Bowmans was bad when I left them (Sept 99), but I hear they are sweating the money even worse now. These two books have a lot in common, and that's not a compliment to either one of them.

                Can't say I don't wholeheartedly agree.
