OK people lets get ourselves organised.

The rules are:
1, We take turns posting the odds from betting organisations.
2, You must bet $10,000 each race
3, You must repay your $10,000 at the end of each race (tough huh?)
4, You may make up to three bets with the $10,000
5, You can make a default bet in case you cant make it or forget
6, You must use the same odds as are posted.
7, You must beat Monstar by seasons end
8, You must calculate your winnings and loosings so that a leaderboard can be drawn up.
9, You must have fun

Anything else?

Who will do the first odds?

If someone joins mid season, his/her starting total would be the number of previous races mutliplied by 10,000$ in the negative. Very Happy

Monstar starts with -100,000$ mrgreen .

I also propose that we post this in the general section or send a PM to everyone so that we have more members this time. It's not fun losing to the same people everytime Very Happy .

Edit: I will post the odds for Bahrain soon. Maybe someone else will take up the responsibility for the next race.

Sorry arizal for being unclear. No money changes hands, its all imaginary (we dont want Monstar to have all our money).

The odds are the ratio of the bet. For example the bookies (people who make the odds) may analyse and think that Lewis to win the race is 2.10. This means that if you bet $100 on Lewis to win, you will get $210 as your prize, but if he doesnt win you loose the $100).

Someone else might explain better.

@Arizal. The game is very easy. I didn't know the first thing about betting when i joined this game, after having avoided even reading the thread for the whole first season thinking it was real money Embarassed Laughing . You can start posting your bets after you see what other people have bet and you will have an idea on how to go about it. Just remember, you need to place your bets before Quali on Saturday ( unless you want to bet on FP1 in which case you have to put your bet before FP1 begins).

I think we need to advertise our thread more and get more new members. Not many people visit the Games Forum anyway.
Edit: Oops. I didn't check Rus's post in the General forum Embarassed .

I'm posting an example bet for newcomers. Remember this is not my real bet Very Happy .

5000$ on Fernando Alonso for the win @ 3.50
3000$ on Felipe Massa for the pole position @7.00
2000$ on Mark Webber for Podium finish @4.00

So , if Alonso wins the race but Massa doesn't get the pole and Webber doesn't get the podium, my total after the race will be :
5000$ X 3.50 = 17500$
3000$ X 0 = 0$
2000$ X 0 = 0$
Total Winnings = 17500$
Balance after Bahrain = 17500 - 10000 = 7500$

I think DEFAULT bet has to be a 1 bet of $10.000. Thats what we did last year. Unless we change it for this year?? RUS has final say??

And you need to put that in the rules RUS Wink

Yeah, everyone forgot about the default bet. I think it would be better to make the default bet a single one, to keep it simple and easy to remember.

Hmm, I have just read quotes from more than one driver, that clearly state that Red Bull have the quickest car. I'm still gonna wait until just before qualifying, but I suspect my bets will be in this direction.

My default bet can be Webber podium. (for old times sake Laughing )

Balance after Bahrain = 17500 - 10000 = 7500$

what if Alonso didnt win, Massa didnt get pole and Webber doesnt get podium
it would be something like this?
5000$ x 0 = 0
3000$ x 0 = 0
2000$ x 0 = 0
Total winnings = 0
Balance after Bahrain = 0$ - 10,000$ = -10,000$ ?? So this minus will be carried over to the next race right?

do we have an allocation, let say everyone start with 100,000$? or we can decide on our own allocation?

Yep, every race you get 10,000 no matter what, imagine it comes from a very generous bank. I think at the end of last season only 5 people were in the green? Everyone else was red. Laughing

Like Webhead has said, you will get 10000$ every race, no matter what. Your balance will be added up after every race with the previous balance( including the negative amount ).
