Do not mail these staff with requests. Each one has a thread in the forums, for there own section. The gambling section on the forums can be found here...  No promises are made to get all requests made into the bookies, but staff do there best to try. Please have all requests in 24 hours, or more before the match/event will take place.
Results are put in manually by Torns bookie staff, so, we say, bets can take up to 24 hours to pay out. Paying out results done in 2 steps. Bookie staff find, and input the result, sending to an admin for verification. When an admin had time, they check the results, and pay the bet out. This can slow down some results, but it also stops a lot of mistakes being made. Asking for payouts does not speed up the process, and only tends to annoy staff, who could be busy elsewhere.
If you see a mistake in one of our bets, please contact a member of the bookie staff, ( the one who added the bet would be your 1st port of call if on-line). The bet can then be removed, and added correctly.
Some of our bets are added with handicaps. This is to make the bet less one sided. When making bets, make sure you know what you are betting on. If a bet has Handicap, H/C or spread in the title, it is a handicapped bet. Here are some examples of how a handicap bet looks, and what needs to happen for you to win the bet.
- Important disclaimers.

How do I work out how much I would win?
The easiest way, is to take your original bet amount, and multiply it, by the multiplier. A bet of 100 million, with a 1.8 multiplier, would be 100 x 1.8 = 180 million return.
When will my winnings be paid out?
We try our best to get all bets paid out within 24 hours of the match ending.
Will I get my money back if my horse does not run?
No. Refunds are only give on horse races, where under 6 horses START the race.
What happens if my tennis game is ended due to a retirement?
Bets would be refunded if the game does not reach a final conclusion.
What happens if my football game goes into extra time?
All football, and European hockey, are paid out at regulation time, (90 minutes for football, 60 minutes for hockey) unless otherwise stated. NFL, NHL, NCAA and MLB are played to a final result.
My bet said I lost, yet my team won, what happened?
Make sure your bet was not on a handicap game. if it was, check scores carefully. IF you feel there is still a mistake, mail a member of the bookie staff.
I bet on the wrong team, can I get my money back?
No, bets cannot be refunded for this reason I'm afraid.
Can we do accumulator bets?
No sorry, each bet placed is an individual bet.
