    Hi everyone,

    I'm posting this here as we want to keep this relatively quiet for now, limiting the amount people who're aware of it / using it. I figured the gambling forum would be the ideal place!

    We've just opened up the new bookies system, you can access it here: https://www.torn.com/page.php?sid=bookie#/your-bets
    Although it looks visually similar, please understand that this is an entirely separate system, so bets made here will not be shown when viewing the old version at https://www.torn.com/bookies.php, and vice versa.

    It's taken us a long time, but we've finally managed to implement the new provider, and enabled many of the features that weren't possible before. I'll leave some notes below on what can be expected. I'll keep adding to this list with any new information.


    - Firstly, all odds should be updated in a timely fashion, this is one thing we're very interested to confirm on a larger scale. Torn's odds should now update at the same time as real-world betting sites, and the odds should be of far higher accuracy and quality.

    - A limit of $10m still remains while we build confidence in the system, we're limiting risk as much as we realistically can. If all goes well, increasing this to $100m will be the next step.

    - We're limited to 12 sports currently, that includes 3 Esports. This is our starting point and we expect to continuously add to this. Even horse racing will be possible at some point, however such events have their own rules so can take additional time to implement.

    - We've spent a lot of time cleaning up and improving the interface to make everything as intuitive as possible, even for casual players who are new to sports betting. The new bookie is also Dark Mode friendly.

    - This new version has been drastically optimised, everything should be much much faster and smoother.

    - Special betting options are now available! Odd & Even / Handicaps / Over & Under / 2-way & 3-way / e.t.c.

    - Popular bets and competition tabs won't appear until a certain amount of public bets have been made, as these are based on popularity determined by you, the players.


    If you find any issues, feedback, or indeed have any questions which haven't been addressed, please leave a post here. Dmytro and I will be checking this thread frequently.

    Thanks.

    Well this looks rather interesting, the 100m bet limit would certainly be nice

    I'm flying and can access this new bookie.  Is this a fever dream or am I going to stop missing bets because I'm flying?

    I assume this is for goals but any way you can change these markets to specify, before someone comes in here yelling they thought it was for yellow cards or something and that they got robbed

    There are no plans on implementing live betting at the moment.

    new minimum bet is changed to $1 which doesn't work right with odds, is it not better to have $100 minimum bets like the old system?

    11:49:02 - 26/05/21 You placed a $1 (x2.00) bet in the Bookie on Freiburg II (3-Way Ordinary time) bet on Freiburg II v Ulm
    11:49:08 - 26/05/21 You placed a $1 (x3.00) bet in the Bookie on Ulm (3-Way Ordinary time) bet on Freiburg II v Ulm
    11:49:12 - 26/05/21 You placed a $1 (x3.40) bet in the Bookie on Draw (3-Way Ordinary time) bet on Freiburg II v Ulm

    I mean... it’s just a dollar.  I’m not sure it really matters if the rounding is wonky.

    I agree, a $100 minimum bet would probably be smoother.

    I don't understand how this could be confused with anything other than goals. Isn't this formatting very standard in the bookie world? Same with handicaps?

    Cards and corners have the same format so could be confusing

    Looked normal to me. If it was something other than goals then it’d be specified. Not the other way around.

    Thank you. I've fixed min bet amount. Now it's 100$. It will be done in more elegant way on the front side a bit later.

    Thank you. 
    We don't have live betting at the moment. So odds could be or could be not updated after the kick off.

    Since Torn uses US spelling, shouldn't "American Football" be "Football", and "Football" become "Soccer"?

    Also, are there plans on including table tennis?
