This is thread is devoted to chat anything about your daily vBets. You can share here how much credits you won/lost. Who you gambled on, and everything and anything related to vBookie and VBettings.

Here i start:

What happens to the stakes of a vBet, when the match gets cancelled?:confused:
I did this for Murray vs Raonic, at Toronto.

I don´t use Vbet

Fis... I lost both the vBets today, one on Tipsarevic and another on Isner. Never thought Isner would lose. But Tips too had a good chance, when compared to Djokovic recent contests. Even he lost though.

Totally lost 932 vCash(including profits) in vBetting so far. Major Portion is because of Tipsarevic, Isner and Gasquet in Toronto. More than 1000 vCash if i won't consider profits. That shows why betting spoils lives.

Why isn't there vbets for Doubles Matches?

you are asking the wrong person :)

I'll tell you.

There are markets for doubles but rarely usually for SF/F in Masters and GS. V-bettors on mtf show no interest in doubles matches and even when we have interesting encounters there are very few bets on them that's why v-bookie managers don't create markets for doubles.

I would like to see doubles vBets too. At least for SF / F, like you said. I didn't see any of them in Toronto Masters though. We can have this when top teams are in the fight. Thanks for answering. :) :wavey:

There are people who follow doubles here, but the MTF is dominated by singles fans.

cool that you came to know know... BTW, Snoo Foo, can you start some Doubles vBets? at least for seeded/ top teams. Let the odds be such that people will vBet in doubles too... thats my suggestion, but you can do in anyway.

If I know the answer I'll tell you.

Ok, I was wondering how the interest works, say I put in the account the minimum you need to get interest 500vCash, so I will get 4% on that every 30 days right, but what if say a week later I put in 500 more does that start another 30 days and 4% for that 500, or is it 1,000 and I will get 8% on it in 30 days etc.?

no v-bookies available. everyone wants to bet but nobody wants to be a v-bookie. so this :( emoticon is very inappropriate.

TBH I don't know but I do believe it is like with the real banks. the starting period is the day you initially put your money in the bank. I highly doubt the percentage will double if you put some more money into your account. I think 4% will be counted on the new amount of money+interest which you have gotten to the day. I will ask and if I get an answer I'll write here.

No need to get so sensitive. It's just an emoticon, not an insult.

I'll happily be a v-bookie if no-one has time. Tell me where I sign up.

Aenea

Sensitive? Only because I am pointing the truth? mtf users have a very strange understanding for "sensitiveness"
in the last year there have been 2 threads that v-bookies are wanted. why haven't you applied?
Contact Snowwy but only if you have a clean mtf record. If you have been banned don't bother.

I tried it, but I just couldn't do it. The odds, the time of different Matches in different time zones, it isn't easy if you aren't good in these areas plus it takes a lot of time to post all the Matches! I could do the pay outs easily, but that was all! I really do wish some people could be found that could handle the job because I miss vBetting. The betting is the easy part being the vBookie isn't easy, but people that just bet don't realize that because I didn't realize it until I tried to be a vBookie myself!

The vBookie threads are connected to the Tennis Tournaments so I don't see anyway you could do football bets and have them show up.

Yup, looks like one of the mods moved them to the restricted area. Don't know why or who did it. Unfortunately there's nothing I can do to put it back.

I started them in the Soccer Betting Forum, which I thought would be OK but I guess one of the mods disapproved.

I hope I get an explanation. Hardly anyone uses the Soccer Betting Forum so its not like it was getting in the way. In any case, what's more relevant to soccer betting?

I didn't even know there was such a thing as the Soccer Betting Forum! Maybe it goes with the Gambler's Lounge? I have never been in the Gambler's Lounge section of the Forum. But you can't mix the two, vBookie Betting is only for Tennis Matches. Sorry, but that is the way it is :o I just clicked on the Gambler's Lounge section just to see what was there and I was right the Soccer Betting Forum is for the Gambler's Lounge site on the Forum. And the Gambler's Lounge is separate from the vBookie Betting Section so you can't mix the two. Again sorry :o

Last time this happened, the system had the status of the bet as 'abandoned' instead of 'settled'.
And I'm pretty sure that I did not get the vCash back.

All stakes should have been returned.

If you believe your stake was not returned, inform the admins. I have no further power.

Aenea
01-09-2013, 02:47 PM
If you have checked the "no winner" box then the stakes are not returned, the market gets settled "This event is over" but stakes remain. In order to abandon an event and return stakes you must click on the "Abandon this event" link on the upper right side of the market, next to the Edit link. Only then the stakes are returned.
IMO it is you the one who have to contact an admin and ask for assistance.
