So you think you can accurately predict who the winner(s) of competitions will be, who will win the big prizes and when the favourites will lose? Now you have the chance to prove it! vBetting is the ultimate sports betting online simulation that can be played everyday.
Each Eligible Premium Member member is automatically credited with $500 worth of vCash (virtual cash) to spend in our vBetting shop.We will add new markets as often as we can where you can bet vCash on winners of thec ompetions and other specials. Bet on a winner and your stake will be returned to your vCash account, plus the winnings.
About The Odds
Different odds are offered on each outcome. The most likely outcome is given a short price, whilst the least likely outcome (i.e. Granny ever getting a good hair day ) is priced with more generous odds where you can win more virtual money.
Irina Slutskaya to win The Olys with inflated PCS scores might be priced at 2/1
This means for every $10 you bet, you win $20 profit in vCash + your stake back IF She wins with inflated PCS scores. Total return: $30. Any other outcome would be settled as you losing $10.
Granny to have a good hair day might be priced at 20/1
This means for every $10 you bet, you win $200 in vCash + your stake back IF Granny has a good hair day. Total return: $220. Any other outcome would be settled as you losing $10.
Track Your Bets/Winnings
You can keep a check on your progress by visiting the vBetting shop online at the following address:
Bet stats, top winners etc can be seen at http://www.fsuniverse.net/forum/vbookie.php?do=stats
From this page you can see historical bets, wins, losses and current virtual bets yet to be settled. The vBookie also lists the current markets open where you can bet, closed and settled.
Your current vCash account position is displayed in every post you make on the board - with a link to the vBetting shop. The amount shown will not include any bets you currently have in progress (that is, bets that have not yet been settled by us).
Amass a fortune and you'll impress everyone.... lose all your vCash and people might start questioning if you are really 'IN Tecknik' . So be careful.
If you lose all your money - Well, we're generous souls. When a new event goes up, your balance will be set back to $25
I will need some 'Official Bookies' who understand odds and all that and only they and admins will be able to post new 'V Bookie' events. Everyone else can place a bet. Please PM me if you wish to be one, in return your access to the supporters area will be free of charge while you do 'the job'. Im thinking maybe 4 people.
Anyone can request an event to be posted by posting a thread here.
Odds can be changed but .......
vBookie is a 'bookmakers' or betting extension to vBulletin. It enables authorised members to post Events and Outcomes that forum members can bet on. Each Outcome has its own set of odds, and odds can be modified through the life of an Event (bets that are placed are stored with the prevailing odds, so even if the odds change, your users are paid at the correct rate).
Once the results are known, Events can be settled and forums members awarded their winnings.
