  14. Management is not responsible for lost, stolen, altered, or unreadable tickets. If a ticket is intentionally altered, it will not be honored and automatically becomes a loser. Under no circumstances will the BetAmerica Sports Book honor any claims or accept any responsibility for inaccurate tickets or incomplete transactions that may be the result of miscommunication, misunderstanding, error or any other cause.
