Re: Rate the vBookie

I gave 8

- Overall better than average with most events posted well in advance
- Lot of new 'exotic' options posted which made things more interesting as well

Re: Rate the vBookie

I can't fault the volunteer effort, but maybe because of timezone differences it was impossible to bet on a lot of matches (for example often I wanted to place a bet late evening European time for the next day's matches but there were no markets). It will probably help when the vBookie volunteer is in the same timezone as the tournament.

we'll have more vBookies next year and from different continents so it'll be better in 2008

Re: Rate the vBookie

Should've been betting on the ACC.

It's only a game, no need to take things too seriously. With the credits flowing, it'll be better to offer lots of options (other sports as well would be good).

We do occasionally offer other options to bet on. We dont and will not be adding other sports to the betting list. After all this is a tennis forum

but if "tennis" fans don't want to bet on other things, they don't have to. I mean, I don't expect betting available on every soccer and basketball match, that would be too hard work.

But Genci could add some football options like Euro 08 winner, top goalscorer etc, Jordan can add some crap American sport that he likes etc.

No sorry. vBetting is strictly for tennis only. Site owners/admins want it like that and personally i want it like that too. If you want to vBet on football or something go to the bottom of the page and join their football forum

Tennis is more than enough to accommodate for. Once there is something other than tennis up, people will be requesting all sorts of bets

I'm totally up for it and I don't see why it's can't be done but they'll probably find another excuse like for ACC

i doubt that most bookies had odds on the same evening. especially for the European tournaments most bookie (except bWin with their awful odds) are releasing odds on morning.

Re: Rate the vBookie

There were Matches I wanted to bet on that for one reason or another weren't put up. Also due to mistakes in the postings of the Matches some of my v-bets were wiped out I think with more people in difference time zones it will be much better in 2008
