V-betting Volunteers wanted

Unfortunately Amanda will longer be able to handle the v-betting due to time constraints therefore in looking out for the best interest of members and the site she has chosen to step down and hand off the gaming to someone who can ensure the proper amount of time is dedicated to this task.
It should be noted, Amanda is not leaving the site, she is just forced to limit her time here as she has additional priorities.
I would like to thank Amanda for her time and dedication to the gaming, a true supporting member.


If somebody, or a team of individuals is interested in carrying on the game, it may be possible to resurrect virtual betting.

You will need to understand fractional odds to post markets.
You will need to source odds from betting sides to keep the game realistic.
And you will need time and plenty of enthusiasm to keep up with the rash of events.

Please let us know if anyone is interested.

Thanks.

Re: V-betting Volunteers wanted

Steve you know how I love vBetting and I would love to help. Even if I couldn't bet. But I don't have the understanding about odds that is needed and I don't have a PC to post the Matches even if I did. I use an
MSN TV 2 (which you have probably never heard of) it lets me use the internet, post here, and do e-mails, but it won't let me do much else
So all I can do is ask (beg?), if there is anyone out there that can do the job would you PLEASE volunteer

Re: V-betting Volunteers wanted

Just to let people know, it took me a long time to fully understand odds myself. I use a betting calculator to make the odds, so if you're used to decimals, you can easily convert them to the required fractional equivalent using the tool. So don't let complicated math put you off getting involved in keeping the game running.

Adam thanks again But if we start vBetting back, won't something have to be done about vCash? Or are we expected to try to gain vCash by just betting successfully? I could be in a lot of trouble there
