Introduction to vBetting

Brief Introduction
So you think you can accurately predict who the winner(s) of tennis matches will be, who will win the big tournaments each week and when the favourites will lose? Now you have the chance to prove it! vBetting is the ultimate sports betting online simulation that can be played everyday on MensTennisForums.com.

About vCash
Each MensTennisForums.com member is automatically credited with $50 worth of vCash (virtual cash) to spend in our vBetting shop. Each day we will add new markets where you can bet vCash on winners of the days matches, tournaments and other specials. Bet on a winner and your stake will be returned to your vCash account, plus the winnings.

About The Odds
Different odds are offered on each outcome. The most likely outcome is given a short price, whilst the least likely outcome (i.e. Tim Henman winning Wimbledon :D) is priced with more generous odds where you can win more virtual money.

For example:
Roger Federer to win Wimbledon might be priced at 2/1
This means for every $10 you bet, you win $20 profit in vCash + your stake back IF Roger Federer wins Wimbledon. Total return: $30. Any other outcome would be settled as you losing $10.

Tim Henman to win Wimbledon might be priced at 20/1
This means for every $10 you bet, you win $200 in vCash + your stake back IF Tim Henman wins Wimbledon. Total return: $220. Any other outcome would be settled as you losing $10.

Track Your Bets/Winnings
You can keep a check on your progress by visiting the vBetting shop online at the following address:
http://www.menstennisforums.com/vbookie.php
(This link is also accessible from the GAMES menu on every MensTennisForums web page)

From this page you can see historical bets, wins, losses and current virtual bets yet to be settled. The vBookie also lists the current markets open where you can bet, closed and settled.

Your vCash
Your current vCash account position is displayed in every post you make on MensTennisForums.com - with a link to the vBetting shop. The amount shown will not include any bets you currently have in progress (that is, bets that have not yet been settled by us).

Amass a fortune and you'll impress everyone.... lose all your vCash and people might start questioning if you really know what you're talking about. So be careful. :)

If you waste all your vCash, you'll automatically be credited with some extra vCash the next time we add a betting market to the system. It's a small amount though. :) You'll have to work very hard to get back from $0 to $500, so try not to waste it. :p

It's just a game we launched for fun. There are no commercial reasons behind us starting this game, we just thought some of you who enjoy betting occasionally might also enjoy playing a game where you can "virtually bet on outcomes" without risk of losing money. :) We have no plans to start a real betting company yet. :lol:

07-05-2004, 01:25 AM
it looks like really good fun. will we be able to bet on matches or is it just outright betting?

wtn_amanda
07-05-2004, 01:31 AM
Can we convert winnings to our own currency?? ie: for me it would be british pounds.

No, we just use dollars to represent vCash. Remember the money isn't real - it's virtual cash only for play. :)

We will be putting up individual matches too.... so you can play almost everyday if you want. We hope it will add another dimension to following tennis on MensTennisForums.com - because now, you have your vCash to think about when cheering for players. :D

Wouldn't it be fun if in addition to betting we could also earn vCash by posting, I mean a very little amount? Maybe $1 for 10 posts or something. This way if you lose everything on betting of course it'll be tough but you can recover more quickly.

wtn_amanda
07-05-2004, 04:46 PM
We will be announcing other ways you can earn extra vCash shortly. So stay tuned for more exciting information about that. :)

In response to jturpin4, since I am setting up the markets at present, I am effectively betting against all of you at present. Everytime somebody wins, the MTF house loses.... and I am responsible for what those losses amount to in the odds I set.

Havok
07-05-2004, 05:06 PM
Is this strictly a game for mtf or will we see it also at wtaworld?

I think this is a very cool idea. I allways wondered if I'd have a chance to beat the odds at the William Hill bookmaker for tennis, if I'd pick my matches very selectively. I'd never try that though, since I just don't want to spend money on gambling.

But now I can try it in this forum. Will you make the odds statistically balanced or will you make the odds lower so the odds-maker will usually win money? For example: if two players have 50% to win a match, will the odds be 1/1 and 1/1? Or will you make them 4/5 and 4/5?

I think you should make sure people can only earn cash by winning bets. So, that the cash score reflects how well someone has done in betting. If you can earn money by other ways such as making posts or by getting rep-points, that will spoil the competition. In the end you won't know anymore which scores were earned by good tennis knowledge, and which scores were just earned by making posts.

What about allowing negative cash scores? If someone loses all his money, he's still allowed to bet, but only by 1$ each bet. That way if he's lucky he can work his way up again until he has enough money for bigger bets again, and if he's unlucky, his cash score will just become more negative. But he'll still have the option to keep on betting.

It's exclusive to MTF at the moment. If the game is popular however, and there's demand on WTAworld.com from other members, there's no reason why the game can't be launched over there too.

But he'll still have the option to keep on betting.

I'm glad you the like the concept. :)

Odds are compiled based on real market offerings so there will be those evil over-rounds. For example: an even money shot (2.00) will be competing with a favourite priced at around 9/10 (1.90). It makes the game more realistic though - you'll have an idea how you might be doing in the real world losing real money.

We wont be offering bonus vCash for reputation points as that system is being openly abused. :) We are planning on offering vCash rewards though if you introduce/invite a friend to MensTennisForums.com/vBetting. This happens in the real world too, so it's not completely unrealistic and it's a rewarding way to invite you friends to join the game.

When an account falls to zero, it will be topped back up to $10 the next time we add a market. So if you see anyone with a vCash balance of $10, you know they're doing as badly as is humanly possibly. :)

I hope that answers all your questions.

me back from hols ....... nice idea :)

if u lose too much money........ give them an overdraft with loan-shark type repayments :tape:

Raquel
07-06-2004, 02:32 AM
Can i just get one thing straight? :o I feel almost stupid asking but in the example given in post 1 - 2/1 on Federer, $10 bet becomes $20 + stake = $30. That's fine.

But if someone is 9/10 then would you lose money? Because if you put $10 on that, you would only win $9? Or is it the $9 + the stake = $19?

I am just not sure if you make a profit when it is 1/2 as well as when it is 2/1?

Correct. You would win $19.

I dont think we should be able to get extra dollars from posts, rep, or any other form, it could so easily be abused. I dont want to see loads of meaningless posts because someone wants more cash :o

The only thing we might offer is a referall scheme... where you get paid $xx for every person you invite who chooses to register on MTF. There's absolutely no chance of people earning extra vCash just for posting messages or the abused reputation points.

You're right. It's not funny, even more when there's a thread when people good-rep each other just for fun. The idea is really give credit (good or bad) to someone who you think deserve it

If you fall to zero, you will be credited with $25 to continue playing the next time we add an event. You'll have to work very hard to get back to $500 with that. :) You are not allowed a negative balance.

Chris Seahorse
07-14-2004, 05:30 PM
Amanda, is it possible to make accumulator bets? i.e. bets in which 2 or more picks are laid on top of each other multiplying the odds but also requiring all of the selections to be successful.

like 1/2 9/7 ... what does all that mean!!

2/1 means that for every £1 you put on you win £2 (+ your £1 back)

6/4 means that for every £4 you put on you win £6 back (+ your £4 back)

4/5 means that for every £5 you put on you win £4 back (+ your £5 back)

etc. etc.

Corey Feldman
07-22-2004, 01:38 AM
can you win alot more by betting on a guy to win the whole tournament, rather than just 1 match at a time-betting?
and can you take back a bet uve made, (before that match,tournament has began obviously) or chaNge it to put more money or less money on it than you 1st chosen?

BaselineSmash

Too many questions. :scared:

BaselineSmash
07-22-2004, 02:00 AM
1. Yes
2. Depends on the odds but yes, the odds are often better for bets on overall champion e.g. 33/1.
3. No, no, don't be silly.
4. You can't reduce your bet, but you can bet more than once after having placed a primary bet.

The rules state if the first set is completed all bets stand. These are standardized rules across many betting sites.

10-26-2004, 08:34 PM
thanks for the clarification amanda...

however i have to disagree that they are the standard rules.....i think you will find the standrad rules on the majority of betting sites (trust me i know :) ) is that if a match does not go the distance, ALL bets on that match will be voided

there is no way to bet all my money. vCash is so much, that without my pending bets, my balance won't be under 100 K.
so, yes - i'm confident :)
it will become such a time, when on "Bet Statistics" page will see only one name - Filipo.
i'm betting not only for Federer & Nadal. i broke some records with Coria & Agassi this week. today another one will be broken, again with Coria. today is my birthday :) seriously !!!

Nymeria
11-01-2005, 12:39 PM
If I am right they changed the number of vCash you get from 500 to 50, coz I have noticed all newbies have only 50 (and I can't believe they all bet rightaway :p). Prolly this has osmething to do with the change in vCash system which were made not too long ago. When did join on wtaworld? Before the changes in the vCahs system?

Brief Introduction
So you think you can accurately predict who the winner(s) of tennis matches will be, who will win the big tournaments each week and when the favourites will lose? Now you have the chance to prove it! vBetting is the ultimate sports betting online simulation that can be played everyday on MensTennisForums.com.

About vCash
Each MensTennisForums.com member is automatically credited with $50 worth of vCash (virtual cash) to spend in our vBetting shop. Each day we will add new markets where you can bet vCash on winners of the days matches, tournaments and other specials. Bet on a winner and your stake will be returned to your vCash account, plus the winnings.

About The Odds
Different odds are offered on each outcome. The most likely outcome is given a short price, whilst the least likely outcome (i.e. Tim Henman winning Wimbledon :D) is priced with more generous odds where you can win more virtual money.

For example:
Roger Federer to win Wimbledon might be priced at 2/1
This means for every $10 you bet, you win $20 profit in vCash + your stake back IF Roger Federer wins Wimbledon. Total return: $30. Any other outcome would be settled as you losing $10.

Tim Henman to win Wimbledon might be priced at 20/1
This means for every $10 you bet, you win $200 in vCash + your stake back IF Tim Henman wins Wimbledon. Total return: $220. Any other outcome would be settled as you losing $10.

Track Your Bets/Winnings
You can keep a check on your progress by visiting the vBetting shop online at the following address:
http://www.menstennisforums.com/vbookie.php
(This link is also accessible from the GAMES menu on every MensTennisForums web page)

From this page you can see historical bets, wins, losses and current virtual bets yet to be settled. The vBookie also lists the current markets open where you can bet, closed and settled.

Your vCash
Your current vCash account position is displayed in every post you make on MensTennisForums.com - with a link to the vBetting shop. The amount shown will not include any bets you currently have in progress (that is, bets that have not yet been settled by us).

Amass a fortune and you'll impress everyone.... lose all your vCash and people might start questioning if you really know what you're talking about. So be careful. :)

Shouldn't the return in this case be 210?

I have 10, I place the bet, now I have 0. Odds 20/1, I win 200 + my bet back. Should be 210.

Have the rules changed? You used to could bet more than once on the same Match. I placed one bet on a Match and the message said I couldn't bet anymore on that Match :confused:

Will there be betting on the matches themselves in davis Cup or just the overall tie as it is at the moment,

yes, there was a bug in the system and some users took advantage by betting many times on the same player having money reduced only once from their total
I know it sucks when you want to bet twice on the same match but at least this way we avoid getting fooled by Jerry Seinfeld

Will there be betting on the matches themselves in davis Cup or just the overall tie as it is at the moment,

I dont have time to do them now
I hope Belco does them when he wakes up

Could it be possible that some posts/threads of urs have been deleted without 'you knowing'

when a mod deletes a post/thread it deducts a fair amount off ur total

Hello,how to play the Handicap Vbetting? :bigcry: I don't know what are "R. Nadal -3.5 Games 4/5 F" and "M. Baghdatis +3.5 Games"!

belco
02-27-2007, 02:17 PM
in a nutshell it just means Baggy gets 3.5 games head start...
End of the match count all the games add 3.5 to baggy and if he has won more games he wins :) if not nadal wins..

belco

Hello mashamaniac :)

Usually everyday (if we're not busy) we will open up matches with REAL odds for betting. You need to predict the correct winner and put vcash on them. If the player you bet on wins, Your a winner :) If he looses... well i can let you guess ;)

You don't need to bet on every match or bet every day. The choice is yours :) The bets will close at the stated times when you click on the market :)

To get to the betting page click this link

http://www.menstennisforums.com/vbookie.php? You may also click on the vbookie link on the right hand side (new skin) or up the top (old skin)

From time to time we have other betting options such as set betting, combos, outright winner and doubles matches. If you are unsure about the bet, the rules about it will be in the post below the betting section :)

Happy vBetting and good luck!

belco
07-02-2007, 02:07 PM
If u bet v$100 on a match and the player wins u get ur v$100 back plus ur winnings when we settle the bets :)

By visiting this link: http://www.menstennisforums.com/vbookie.php? will show you the open events for betting :) Just click on a link (player vs player) or on the betting info link for the match. :)

Hi belco :wavey: Since we get so little v-cash any more I can't keep enough of it to bet :sad: I start doing well and building up some v-cash then I make a wrong bet and I'm wiped out. Since it was one of my favorite things to do here at MTF I don't come around much any more. But I'm sure I'm not missed :p

I'm sorry I forgot to check your membership date. Well you will have to take my word for it then. It was great :D You could get a lot of money that way which helped to make up for any betting mistakes. Now if you mess up betting you don't have any v-Cash to bet with :sad: I just checked your membership date it is the same as mine :lol: I guess you didn't have an upgraded membership and I did :p

Guys, How about starting a new thread where we can chat about out daily vBets? Like how much we won, how much we lost, upon whom we take risk, so whom you want to win, etc.,

Let the thread name be like: 'The vBet Chat'.
