The all new horsey betting shop
« on: February 22, 2013, 12:27:53 PM »
Decided I'd start up a well and PROPER competition instead of all this airy fairy stuff, with overly complicated roolz that no one apart from the OP actually understands Banghead.


Now I don't really understand betting and all the technical jargon that oes with it, but I'll join in with a bit of guidance from any of you's lot that do.

We'll start out with a 'bank' of say  rubschin: 100snotters each, and then you can place you imaginary bet on here before the race, simples!

Post the result up after, and we'll see who makes the most profit, only I'll problee need a bit of help, 'cus I don't even understand the 'odds' tbqh....unless they're ded simple ones like, like 2/1 etc.

Wotchya! :thumbsup:

I'm going for the tasty lickle number 'Barenger' at Sandown, 1:45 cloud9:

Seems to be 5/2 at the mo like, so if I place a tenner on it that'll give me  4 if it wins...i think? confused:

Just do a imaginary bet of your own choice from todays meetings (racing post iis good), and then just go back in there later to see if it wun like. Werk yer winnings out   if you can  confused:, and post them on 'ere like!
You can do an e/w bet to cover yu arse even if you want, but it starts getting complicated then I think?

You've got to post yer selection on here BEFORE the race though, or it doesn't count like. noooo:

Can I bet 10 snotters that the rules will get complecated?

No you turnip headed goon. It's just like a betting shop in here, but without having to stand there with fat sweaty bearded council teneants,  spending their DSS handouts looking at screens and newspapers and stuff. :thumbsup:

5/2 .....divide the first number by the second number ...... giving you 2 & 1/2 to one.

A tenner at 2 1/2 to 1 gives you 25 snotters, plus you get your stake back.   Thumbs:
