Betting Badshah - pseudo gambling event on India's Cricketing tour of Australia
After the SuperSelector we had for world cup, I know you guys would be raring to go for the next big cricket event on XB. What can get bigger than Ind-Aus series down under! So we bring to you the first ever automated betting cricket event of XB.
Raring to go! First lets get to know what its all about. After the tremendous response we received for 4 tests, we have extnded the contest for the tri series featuring Australia , India and Sri Lanka. Each ODI will have one betting thread open. This thread will have different bets in it, against which you can bet. Wondering what you would bet with? Everyone is given free virtual cash of 10,000. Use this vcash to bet on whatever option you would like to. Once the match is finished, we will settle the bets and you will get your winnings (or loose your points)
Some suggestions and tips...
* Dont bet everything you have in one go, keep something for other events.
* Bet carefully, once you have bet some cash, you cant have it back or correct it.
* You can bet multiple times on a single bet, if the event is still open for bets.
* Max vcash you can win on a bet is 25K, so bet accordingly. i.e if odds for a bet is 100/1, you can max bet 250 on this event, so that you cant win more than 25000 if you win this bet.
* Donot bet in fractions, only whole numbers will be considered.
* You can see your score in the postbit, and also others scores.
* Leaders of the game can be viewed by clicking the vBookie link in the navbar.
How does this betting work? Simple... if there is bet which says India is the winner of the first test with odds of 5/1. That would mean, if you bet 1 on this and you have bet it right, then you will get 5 points + 1 point you have bet back.
So if you bet Sachin tendulkar as highest scorer of the match with odds of 10/1, 100 vcash, and if it turns out to be right, then you will get back 1100 vcash (10*100 + 100).
If you are still confused, check the event thread and things will be clearer. If you still have any doubts, questions, do ask them in this thread and it will be cleared. Or send a pm to indkish or me.
Dibba for the winner
For the first time, we are giving reps as prize in a innovative manner. You can CONVERT your final vcash into reps! We will deduct the initial 10K vcash given free and convert the remaining vcash into reps. BUT, beware.. if you have less than 10K vcash by the end of all the test matches, then reps will be deducted from your account. After all betting is no fun without a risk of loosing, isnt it? . The conversion ratio will be announced soon.
