You are enthusiastically welcomed by the Management Board to....

 

 

SpringStakes 2016

 

This game will be operating in the Spring Tournament.

 

Anybody may enter, players or spectators - but players may not bet on themselves to lose.

 

Each player starts the game with 1000 red points and 1000 black points.

 

Red points can only be used on Match Coupons, which will be published each week, provided that the Management Board is available.

 

Black points can only be used on Special Coupons, which will be published intermittently.

 

Players can place Singles (1 bet)

                     OR

Multiples (a combination of bets)

 

Minimum amount that can be placed on any bet is 50 red points (or 50 black points)

Maximum amount that can be placed on any bet is 500 red points (or 500 black points)

 

Singles bet can only contain one bet.

In a Multiples bet, the maximum number of matches in a slip is 5.

  

No selections will be accepted which involve matches that have already started.

(If a player includes a selection which has already played, the rest of the slip is still valid)

 

Players may continue to bet until they have emptied all 1000 red points and 1000 black points from their wallet.

 

Save some points for the next rounds J

 

Match Coupons

 

Players may bet on either selection ‘to progress’.

In the case of a draw, the result of the re-match will apply. And so on.

 

--------------------J---------------

 

EXAMPLE of Match Coupon:

 

Chopstick Ian     6.1        Dangerous Dave     1.14

 

Even Steven       1.91      Close Call               1.91

 

General Summary    1.33     Miner Business     3.4

 

Stratego Legend   1.02     Stratego Underdog   14

 

To submit a betting slip, choose a selection and choose an amount. Make sure the match has not begun yet!

 

Submit your slip in this forum topic before the games have begun.

 

EXAMPLE 1 of  Betting Slip    (Single)

 

I bet 150 red points on:

 

Close Call               1.91

 

-------------J---------------------------

 

EXAMPLE 2 of Betting Slip     (Multiple)

 

I bet 150 red points on:

 

Chopstick Ian     6.1      

Stratego Underdog   14

 

---------------J----------------------------

 

IMPORTANT

 

For a Multiples bet to win, all selections must progress!

 

EXAMPLE of Special Coupon:

  

Stratego Legend   3.9 

Four to One           5

Dangerous Dave     6.6

General Summary    8.2

Close Call               10

Miner Business     25

Chopstick Ian     36   

Ophelia Leg      40   

Stratego Underdog   100

 

To submit a betting slip, choose a selection and choose an amount. Make sure the selection has not already played their match that week!

 

Submit your slip in this forum topic before the games have begun.

 

 

IMPORTANT

Bets from the Special Coupon may not be combined in multiples with itself or with bets from the Match Coupon.

 

 

EXAMPLE 3  of  Betting Slip    (Single)

 

I bet 500 black points on:

 

Chopstick Ian     36   

 

-------------J---------------------------

 

Remember to Save some points for the next rounds J

 

The Management Board reserves the right to change the odds at any time, or to void any bets they deem unacceptable.

 

Once all the matches on your slip have been played, your PnL (Profit and Loss) and your new points balance are calculated.

 

 

---------------J---------------------

 

EXAMPLE 4  of  Betting Slip    (Single)

 

I bet 200 red points on:

 

Miner Business     3.4

 

RESULT: Miner Business wins

 

Starting Balance:    1000

Profit:                      480                 (200*2.4) 

New Balance:           1480

 

Players can use points they have won on their next betting slip.

 

--------------J------------------------

and the company will respond.

 

The Management Board wishes you good luck!

 

                                       Thank you

I bet 500 on ScottRussia at 1.01...... wait that wasn't posted????????????????? :) I guess too much early money already placed on myself for the book to handle!!!!!!

Ok, I therefore bet 100 on:

Zoografasos (1.55)
Prof (1.33)
Gaius (1.7)

(Multiple)

I assume that if all three win I win 100*1.33*1.55*1.7?

I assume that if all three win I win 100*1.33*1.55*1.7?

 

The profit on this bet would be 250.46, which is ((100*1.33*1.55*1.7)-100).
