I don't know if I forgot but it seems I got 60,000 as well from somewhere. Admins might just have been way generous today? Or it was you Mark?

Nah not sure, some other events might have been settled though that you forgot betting on.

On another point:

TBH I think the NZ TAB system works better.

If you win you just times your bet by what ever the odds are, and you get that much back.

E.g. I put $5 on NZ winning at $1.50, and they win, you simply go 5 * 1.5 and you win $7.50 back.

I just personally find that a lot easier than having all this 5/1 odds and stuff, where you have to add on what you bet etc.
Everything at the NZ TAB is greater than $1.00, and it's based in dollars not in fractions, so like $2.20 or $5.00, not 11/5, you probably get my point but those are just my thoughts.

I definately agree, it's a lot less confusing.

You are aware that the decimal odds are shown right next to the fractional ones right!

You just have to add 1 to those decimal points and multiply it with your bet to find out your winnings.

eg: If you bet 4k vCash on Australia at 1.2, add 1 to 1.2. That makes it 2.2. Now multiply it with 4k = 8800 (your winnings)

Exactly, but wouldn't it be easier if the 1 was already there? ;)

You can go here to view the settled bets that you have bet on. It doesn't show what you currently have bets on though I don't think.

Actually it shows ones that are still open too :)
