In fairness anyone gnomey enough to not know what a 7/2 shot smells like shouldn't be punting.
To answer your question literally
- the docket is binned so it goes unclaimed
- the person is a regular customer and another staff member spots the winning bet was not claimed and recognises their handwriting and mentions it to them (yes it happens)
either way, not the end of the World really.
