The Casino has undergone an Upgrade, more games to play and the Sports Betting Pool has been activated!

Right now the only sports events available are all of the College Football Bowl Games:

I don't really pay much attention to college football if my

Suck like they have for the past 6 friggin years but all of the bowl games have been added, the first one starts on Dec. 19th so place your bets.

Feel free to add suggestions for new pools, I'll probably add the NFL Playoffs when the teams and schedules are set. The college bowl bets don't include the line (ie: California is favored by 3 points over Air Force) but it could be added to future pools if you want.

Be sure to read the information at the top of the Sports Betting Page, it's copied here:
The sports pool works as a pool, so all the money bet goes into a pool which is divided amongst the winners. If outcome "A" has 150 bet on it, and outcome "B" has 250 bet on it there is 400 in the pool. If outcome "A" wins, and you had put the entire 150 in, you would win the entire 400. If you had bet 50 of the 150 you would get back 50 / 150 x 400. Or a 3rd of the pot, as you had placed a 3rd of the bet on the winning outcome.

Payout on the event is always 100% of the pot, divided amongst the winners based on the portion they put in, so there are no fixed odds or odds entered. So if no one bets on the loosing outcome, return is exactly what you put in. On the otherside if someone bets 1 on the winning outcome, and others had put a total of 5000 on the losing outcome, betting 1 gives you a 5001 return.

NFL Playoffs would be a great addition.
I'll add the first round of the NFL playoffs when they are set next week!

The College Football Bowl games have been added again this year, I was slow putting them up so we missed a few minor ones but make your bets now, the first one that you can bet on is the Emerald Bowl and it starts tonight. These bowl games run until January 8th.

Take my credits, I'm usually pretty lousy at predicting things...
:trippy:

PS: I'd be happy to add any other sports events, just post about them in this thread.

How does the sports betting work ?

I bet on Arizona, Baltimore, San Diego and Philadelphia ... and I am sure they ALL won, yet I have no money.

What gives ?

I can say this is indeed true. I bet on Arizona, Miami, San Diego and not Philly, I think I should have more than the 1001$ I had after I put my bettings in.

The bets / results don't update automatically. I'd guess someone has to enter the results of the bet manually thus the late payouts. Just a hunch.

No version available with bots nic, the holdem actually has never been tested because players do have to be online at the same time, perhaps a match can be scheduled?

GravitaR is correct results have to be updated manually but they have just been tabulated, congrats on the 4 for 4 da_prez, I sucked and only got 1 right...:no:

The 2nd round of the NFL Playoffs have just been added and quite a bit of bets have been wagered on the college championship game.

Some other notes, i posted this in a thread on 10/16/08 but have been very busy, should be coming within a couple of weeks:
http://www.pinballnirvana.com/forums/showthread.php?t=5682
Lots of stuff left to do, currently concentrating on upgrades to existing mods but there have been many questions about the credits, in the old forums users could purchase stuff like images with these, there has always been no monetary value to these Credits and that will continue. Currently they can be used in the Arcade, Casino, Name That Tune and/or donated to other folks. A brand new program was released to beta test that will allow Users to buy (no cash, just credits) images and other things for themselves or for others, hope to get it installed soon!
Also, a updated version of the Arcade was released yesterday so that will be coming as well.

Man, if we get the NFL regular season for betting... we should make up a new thread for that or open a club or something... betting for fun is awesome! I think I'm about 5-9, not too bad... god damn Steelers. I just KNEW that Pitt would win, but I still bet on the Chargers! I'm a fucking sucker for California... Hell yeah for the Niners, the Raiders and the Chargers!

Now what to do... I liked the way Philly beat the Giants (I can just picture the Mannings sitting at home watching the games, crying about their losses) but I don't feel like betting against Arizona is a good idea... same for the other game. Pitt looks good but I'm high on the Ravens... God, I'll end betting on all four of them and lose big.

The NFL conference championship games have been settled so you guys might have more credits now!

NFL playoffs have still been lousy for me, I've only won 3 out of 10 bets....
What the heck is up with Arizona, I thought they were lucky to be in the playoffs and have bet against them every game.:cuss:

The Super Bowl on Feb. 1st has been added, Arizona vs. Pittsburgh:

sorry to be a downer, jon. latest chat session suffered unbearably long lags ~ 60 seconds plus.

it's hard to get motivated about interactive modules here when the site lags so badly. this is part of the reason why VPF has always been the site of choice despite some better options here.

on paper.

Sorry to hear about that nicolas.b, I'll have to do some testing and i know that an update for the chat and vBulletin is available. I'm not experiencing any lags or maybe I'm used to them.

I spent an hour or so in the chat a few nights ago and saw no lag whatsoever, so perhaps it was an isolated thing? I even had the music player going with no issue. I had noticed some bad lag with this site in the past, but TBH I haven't noticed it at all recently.
