Okay I'm sure there's a thread for this but I have somethign I'd like to say

Okay, over and over again I've argued on this forums about how a 1/1 bet does nothing but win you your money back and it's pointless to even bet. That being said, look at your vbookie and see if you've bet on a 1/1 fight and won it. Most recent one I can think of would be Swick/Burkman. Now since every person who's been on the forum for a long time is die hard for the "A 1/1 bet will give you tour money back + the amount you bet" I'd like to post this...

Swick vs. Burkman
Thread | Info Ultimate Fight Night 12 Mike Swick SETTLED 100000 1/1 (1.00) 100000

Now the lest three numbers are amount staked, odds, and amount won.

Notice anything? The amount staked and won are the same, just like the odds say, and just like I've said all along.



Now, I dont know if mods do this on purpose or for some reason everyone thinks it actually still doubles your money... but if it's not on purpose can someone PLEASE fix it?

if you bet 100k on a 1/1 bet and win, you then win 100k but you get given your stake back. Im pretty sure thats how it works



Thanks to Plazz for the awesome sig

It's just like everyone is telling you.

If you bet 10,000 at 1/1 odds, you get a total of 20,000 added to your account when it settles. You have the 10,000 that you bet (the bank has been holding it, not your account) and the 10,000 that you won from the bet (1/1 odds pays the same as what the bank is holding as your bet).

So, in your case,

Swick vs. Burkman
Thread | Info Ultimate Fight Night 12 Mike Swick SETTLED (bet)100000 1/1 (1.00) (won)100000

Now, when they settle a bet, you get what you bet back PLUS what you won. Once again, in this case you bet 10,000 and won 10,000 so you got a total of 20,000 added to your account at time of settling.

It is not seriously complicated. I hate to say this, but you are being really stupid. I have explained this to you about 100000 times.

If you bet at 1/1 odds, you get your initial bet back, as well as the equavalent in winnings. So if you bet 20,000, you will end up with 40,000.

It is not hard to understand. Jeez.

Sort of, some schools I know offer it as an alternate course. I'll agree the public system here isn't the best, but when you get to College, the US has alot of great schools.
