Important Changes to timing on closing bets.

Due to the Torn Clock changes announced by Ched back in November http://www.torn.com/forums.php?forumID=1&ID=15803023

This Year the Torn clock isnt going forward with daylight savings and will stay on GMT/UTC, so in effect Torn is 1 hour behind BST therefore all bets in Torn will now close 2 hours before the start of the match, but will actually only close an hour before the game starts in real time. we will list the real world starting time as normal, but we have to take into account the server time being 1 hour behind for the closing time of the bet.

This change will stay in effect until the clocks go back in the Autumn.







Post here for everything Bookies related

- Show off your BIG bets
- Big Wins
- Big Losses
- Game/Race/Match/Event requests*
- Tips / Rumors

I'll also post new games added to try and keep you up-to-date.

* You can also join the #tornbookies channel on IRC, there's no guarantees, but we'll see what we can do


04/12/12 - Bookie changes
We've added a $1 billion limit on bookie bets. This is so we can remove the limit on what kind of matches we can add to the bookie. Previously we were forced to use handicaps to limit a lot of games, now we can freely add matches of all odds. We've also added a clear notices on future handicapped games to avoid future confusion.




IMPORTANT - DISCLAIMERS - PLEASE READ


From now on, Failing to notify a staff member when you see an obvious mistake in the bookie and then going on to try and abuse said mistake for personal gain will be classed as bug abuse and offenders will be warned then jailed for 30 days when found doing so


"Draw option in bets"
Any bet that has a Draw option included, irrespective of whether it says 60/90 mins (depending on the sport), Will pay out at the end of Regulation time. Overtime/Shootouts only count on bets with No draw option.

"Pick the 1st / Top Goalscorer" bets
These are setup well before teams are selected, if your selection doesn't play then you won't receive a refund, we do not have this facility. However, if none of the options available win then the bet will be deleted and all monies refunded.

"Horse/Car/Greyhound etc Racing" bets
These are setup well before the fields are selected or qualify or in the case of Horse/Greyhound racing the animals may become "non-runners", if your selection doesn't race then you won't receive a refund, we do not have this facility. However, if none of the options available win then the bet will be deleted and all monies refunded.

"SPREAD" bets on Basketball
Points spreads in Basketball INCLUDE overtime, this may seem strange but it's the way the odds are calculated with gambling sites that we use.


"HANDICAPS or H/C" in Football

If the game you are betting on has HANDICAP or H/C in the title, this means that the favourite team needs to win by 1 more goal that the handicap set to win the bet.. if you bet a favourite team that is -1 handicap then they need to win by 2 goals. if they win by only 1 goal then the handicap draw will pay out, if they actually draw then the team with +1 will win the bet,

To be fair I was expecting a 1-1 draw but Everton are having an unbelievable season, beating Chelsea and a nice result vs sporting Lisbon plus Man U are recently back from Italy that has to take its toll on the players. ALSO the fans at Goodison Park really know how to get behind their team.. great result for Everton, well deserved!

Awesome Its actually a smart idea to bet against Man Utd at the moment because their defence isnt right. Most of the time they will win but with their dodgy defence anyone on form has a chance against them.
