    I have seen and got some complaints and questions in regards to events and payouts. VBookie is something we used a few years back, but now are just getting started again, so there are going to be some bugs early on.

    First off, the ultimate goal in the near future is to set up a virtual store that members can buy virtual items with their vcash. In the mean time, it is just a fun thing to do and to stock up on vcash for the future.

    Anyways, I understand some are upset that there were some 1/1 odds, which pay out nothing, or that some odds have changed after the event was put up and bets were placed. Again, this is something we haven't used in a few years, so the rust needs to be shaken off, and there are some staff members who were not on the staff back then that are getting their hands into setting up events for the first time. Hopefully this becomes a smoother process as we go forward, but if you have any questions or complaints, post them in this thread or send me or another Admin a PM. Contacting an Admin directly will likely speed up the process of correcting any future errors. I hope there are none as we go forward, but we are human, so mistakes can happen.

    Yeah, I ****ed up the Cowboys - Redskins line initially. Changed it later on. When I closed the event I paid out for both sides to cover my ***.

    Woo Hoo!

    Hey can we get the Jets game up soon/ Can you be more fair with some odds. When you ask 5 different ways Dolphins will score 1st, you need to have better odds than 1-1
    Makes no sense. TD pass or TD rush or FG should be at least 3-1
    Others like special teams Int for TD or kick off punt return should be 20-1. I mean they are true odds!

    Safety 30-1 (just examples)

    1-1 actually plays out properly when betting against the spread with 2 teams.

    2-1 odds means you can put 100k on boths sides and clear 100k regardless of the outcome. Also you can make a profit by missing on the spread a lot more tan you hit. It takes the fun out IMO.

    1-1 is proper when the bet is who will win yes
    But not proper when you are only getting 1-1 on 5 different way to score.

    Vip members have had the ability to start vbookie event (I think) otherwise try asking tyler or cedar or nublar about doing college events.

    We need more defensive items such as Wake with 1-2-3 sacks
    Smith with an interception,Dansby with 8 tackles,
    Number of sacks in the first half,second half/game
    number of interceptions by the Dolphins 1st half/second half/game
    number of forced fumbles by the Dolphins 1st half/second half/game
    total number of turnovers created by the Dolphins defense

    special teams
    punts returned for 20 or more yards
    punt returned for a td

    kickoffs returned for more than 40 yards
    kickoffs returned for a td

    to much is toward the offense and is getting boring and old...change it up
