Super Bowl Streaker To Miss Out On $374,000 Winnings After Bets Are Cancelled
| Last updated
Super Bowl LV streaker Yuri Andrade is set to miss out on a huge windfall, after the bookies he bet with cancelled all bets connected with him.
Following the incident there were claims on social media from someone who said they'd met Andrade and the stunt would earn the pitch intruder a huge sum of money.
That was all down to the fact that Andrade claimed to have put $50,000 on someone running onto the field during the NFL game and, having sent his friend to cause a distraction, his victory on doing so would earn him $374,000.
However that's not going to be the case, with bookies Bovada revealing that they will be cancelling any bets connected to Andrade.
"Our players have always trusted us to ensure the integrity of all props offered in our sportsbook," a Bovada spokesperson told Front Office Sports.
"We will continue to make sure that any publicity stunts or ill-intended behavior cannot adversely affect the outcome of a player's wager."
The company have said they will pay out on bets that their investigation concludes were not connected to the streaker, and therefore had no prior knowledge of the incident.
They will also refund all losing bets of those people who believed there would be no streaker at the Super Bowl, which would normally be a pretty safe bet.
The news will come as a particular blow to Andrade, who has already had to pay out $500 for his bail following the incident.
One punter, who would have won $6000, has had his bet cancelled and account suspended via email. "While conducting our investigation, it was found that your account is in breach of our terms of service and player agreement," the message read.
"Due to this breach, the decision has been made to terminate our business relationship with you and discontinue all services and products offered."
The gambler in question has told Front Office that he had no prior knowledge of the incident.
"I'm just out of college, so that's a lot of money for me," the bettor said, "I've had an account with Bovada since 2017 and I lost more than I would have won with [the streaker] bet."
