    That might have been my fault George. I thought I did the settlement right buy may have screwed the pooch. I'll have to look back and see if I can figure out how to fix it.

    I dont think you did anything wrong. On a no payout settlement "push" his money should have been returned to him.

    I think I did the only thing I could of done on the Georgia vs Florida outcome but it shows a lost bet by all "push" bets. But, if it deducted from the bettor's accounts, it did not come to my account. And I'm not seeing any additions to my account for bets on other events that I have won so I think we must have a little glitch in accounting. Is the government involved in this endeavor?:wow:

    I think its just a matter of a setting somewhere that is wrong.

    I gather on a push bet EVERYONE has to be paid out.

    I dont think you should have paid out of your own pocket so I am going to add that back to your account manually and also credit the georgia game results to everyone.

    I bet $2000 on GA and $2000 was deducted from my account.

    I understand that I have to pay the vig,,, but I shouldn't have to pay anything else on a Push.

    you are correct.. The settlement was closed wrong so when re-imbursed that was never taken into account.

    I think everyone has been paid out correctly.

    I tend to believe the issues now are a end result of the settlement.

    A. Rams and gators was simply an error made by the bookie.. no biggie, we are all new at this
    B. The Push. I think ALL push need to be paid out.

    What help do you require? If you want technical information about sports betting, odds, or how the gaming industry works then i'm definitely someone you should ask. I assume you've seen the gambling feature on other sites. EG vBookie on vBulletin sites. If you need a list of sites quoting betting lines I can supply you with those. I'm not a great 1 for typing so i'm not interested in spending hours inputting thousands of betting lines for events that people won't use. If you want to create something a bit different you might consider adding an index/spread option on Rams games rather than just the basic money line, handicap, and over/under options.

    Will do..

    @[USERGROUP=13]Bookies[/USERGROUP] After talking with the writer of the script, it appears bookies are NOT paid out on winnings. Seems kind of silly, but on the other side of the coin, you are also not held responsible for bets being placed and paid out.

    So that leaves the question, what incentive is there in being a bookie then?

    I am not quite sure on the answer to this, so I ask everyone. What incentive type program would it take to encourage bookie participation?

    Shouldn't the bookies receive the Vig ?

    That's their reason for offering the service in real life.

    :frown: I would have had an additional $6,000 on the weekends games.

    In all honesty I'm happy just to do it for the fun of doing it. As long as people are placing bets then that is enough incentive for me.
