vBookie Rules and Guidelines
There's really nothing much new to add here; just follow the Global Forum Rules. vBookie was added to serve as entertainment and for people to "show off" their betting skills/luck. If you're going to poke a little fun at someone, do it in a tasteful manner, but more often than not, you're better off to just pat yourself on the back and move on. If you're on the losing end, take comments with a grain of salt; remember, you haven't really lost anything.
How Does vBookie Work?
- Anyone who registers for this forum is automatically given 500 vDollars.
- There is nothing extra to sign up for, just visit a vBookie thread, type in your wager(s) and bet away.
- Once the event is over, the outcomes are settled by any one of our Mods or Content Team members and your vBalance is updated automatically
- If your vBalance should ever drop below 25, you will be re-set at 25, so if you ever run out, you're still in the game.
I'm new to this gambling jargon, what do all these +'s and -'s mean?
There are 3 betting categories we currently use:
This is the simplest category, you're basically betting on what team will win, or a tie will occur. You'll likely see the outcomes show up as, "Team A - winner", "Tie", etc. If you think Team A will win, then place a wager on Team A. If Team A wins, so do you.
Here you are betting on the total score. There are usually 2 outcomes. For example, if the outcomes are Over 5.5 and Under 5.5, Team A scores 3 and Team B scores 2, Under 5.5 would win. If both teams scored 3, Over 5.5 would win.
The purpose of the spread is to even the playing ground and is for the serious betting enthusiasts. You'll see 2 outcomes, eg:
Team A -11.5
Team B +11.5
If you place a wager on "Team B +11.5", at the end of the game, add 11.5 to Team B's score. If Team B's adjusted score gives them a victory, then you win. Team B can lose the game (34-27), but win the spread (34-38.5).
