no problem... yes, of course you do get your "stake" bet if you win, plus the winning
lol, BoiledEgg, then nobody would bet on favorite and the whole betting system would not work
you have 500$ on your vCash balacne. You bet 100$ vCash on Federer at 8/100 odds (in decimal odds: 1,08), then from your vCash balance you will have 100$ deducted (balance shows 400$). If Federer wins you get your 100$ (stake) back plus
the winning of 8$.
so after your bet was succesful your balance will show 508$.
and it works the same for all other odds.
The only question you have to ask yourself is if such shorts odds are worth betting, and if it is worth risking 100 to win just little 8$.
