Remember the “Super Bowl Streaker,” who claimed he won $374,000 betting on himself to rush the field? Well. Too bad. So sad. , that guy, Yuri Andrade, just got some bad news: He will not be cashing in. The online sportsbook Bovada said they are “voiding” his bets. And, all the other streaker-related bets (his friends) that they’ve found to have “had knowledge” of his pre-planned attempt to run on the field.
A spokesperson said, quote, “Our players have always trusted us to ensure the integrity of all props offered. We’ll continue to make sure that any publicity stunts or ill-intended behavior cannot adversely affect the outcome of a player’s wager.” It’s still unclear what Andrade actually bet. He originally said that he bet $50K on himself, but there was a $1,000 limit. He later clarified that he got a bunch of friends to make bets on his behalf and they combined to win $374,000.
Bovada isn’t canceling the whole prop bet. They say they are paying out for those their “internal investigation” concludes did not have insider knowledge of the stunt.
