    Since this is my first time with a cash payout I was wondering is 5 to 10 percent OK for tipping a proxy of your winnings?
    Also, when does the Westgate send out checks for those of us that do not live in NV?
    Congrats, Archie8. There's a 3-day dispute period so not official until Thursday...payouts start Friday. You need to contact SuperBook to make arrangements (believe you have to fill out a W-9 form before they will send payment.

    As for tipping, it used to be much higher...industry standard was 2% for a while but now most proxies don't require tip, but it's still right thing to do. I've never had anyone tip less than 3% (and that was on big amount), usually closer to 5%. I also think it's fair to just tip on your net winnings if you want to deduct entry fee, etc. but it's up to the individual.

    Yes, congrats to Durbify...great job and a nice $53,871.75 payday. Also congrats to RoughRider39, who tied for 78th in the SuperContest, and I'm pretty sure he's going to cash in the Golden Nugget as well.

    Congratulations to the number of VFV members whom cashed. Especially squarepants! Taking 6th and if I am not mistaken is also the infamous “There can only be one” on winning gold! Take a bow 🙇 you deserve an applause!
    I want to thank Dave! Dave thank you and all the VFV members. I have been a member for years but don’t post often. Especially my pics(always been superstitious). I post pics I lose😁. I have always used this site as place to compare/contrast my selections. With help from you all, years of trial by error😂 and a tremendous amount of luck I was finally able to get over the hump and cash. Thank you to all once again. Wish you all a very Happy 2019!!!!!!!

    Personal Gourmet wins $1,422,214.20 1st-place prize in #SuperContest @SuperBookUSA by going 5-0 in #NFL Week 17 to finish 59-25-1 (70.2%); @Pigskin_Junkies, who could have won if TEN +3 had covered on #SNF, tied for 2nd with Rush YYZ 2112 to collect $409,425.30 apiece @VSiNLive


    Dave Tuley @ViewFromVegas
    There Can Be Only 1 lives up to its name by winning the $640,000 winner-take-all prize in #SuperContestGold, clinching with IND -3 on #SNF to go 4-1 in Week 17 & finish 55-27-3 (67.1%); Hammer3 went 5-0 but fell 1 point short (would have split prize if TEN had covered) @VSiNLive

    It looks like ''There Can Be Only 1'' needs Indy to win by at least 3 points or he splits the gold contest prize with ''Hammer 3'', who went 5-0 today.

    Here are more of the leaders' picks. As Dave pointed out, the top 2 both have BUF -3.5 so the 3 tied for 3rd are rooting against BUF (although 8 of Top 13 have BUF).

    EOG and VFV poster SQUAREPANTS is in a 3 way tie for 11th place, payday with this finish would be around $64K. rooting for a big day for SP.

    Being 2 points behind, @pregame made the optimum move, by being contrarian, to have a chance to win the contest.

    My coverage on Twitter @ViewFromVegas after we announced the consensus and leaders' picks on "The Green Zone" show on VSiN:


    Dave Tuley @ViewFromVegas
    #SuperContest Top 5 Most-Selected Teams (3-2 last week after 6 straight 2-3s, 41-39 overall) are IND -3 at TEN, CLE +6 at BAL, BUF -3.5 vs. MIA, PHI -6.5 at WAS, MIN -4.5 vs. CHI; #SuperContestGold Top 5 (44-32-5, 57.9%) are BUF -3.5, MIN -4.5, CLE +6, IND -3, KC -13.5 @VSiNLive

    #SuperContest leader @Pigskin_Junkies (57-23, 71.3%) has CLE +6, BUF -3.5, DEN +6.5, SEA -13.5 and TEN +3 on #SNF in the race for the $1.4 million 1st-place prize; 2nd-place Rush YYZ2112 (56 points) has 1 common play in BUF -3.5, plus KC -13.5, GB -8, MIN -4.5, LAR -10 @VSiNLive

    In #SuperContestGold: leader There Can Be Only 1 (51-26-3, 66.2%) has CAR +8.5, HOU -6.5, ATL +1, DEN +6.5, IND -3 on #SNF in quest for $640,000 winner-take-all prize; 2nd place Danny Polo 1 (51.5, 1 point back) has NYJ +13.5, CLE +6, BUF -3.5, MIN -4.5, LAC -6,5 @VSiNLive

    Also in #SuperContestGold (because it's winner-take-all), 3rd-place Lightning (1.5 points back) has slightly contrarian card w/ DAL +6.5, NO -8.5, ATL +1, CHI +4.5, TEN +3 while @pregame (2 points back) goes full-contrarian w/ NO -8.5, WAS +6.5, BAL -6, MIA +3.5, TEN +3 @VSiNLive
