I have been holding a few private parimutuel bets on the tournament matches and would like to open them up to the general public, with the intention of sparking people's interest. Gambling is a fun and easy way to add spice to watching a match and get the old heart thumping.

In a parimutuel betting system, wagers placed on both teams are grouped into a single pool, from there a percentage commission is subtracted for the house and the rest split between the winners in accordance to how much they bet. See the Wikipedia article for more information.

What I am offering is for you to place bets on the first eight matches that will take place Saturday June 18th.

These are:

15:00 The G0dfathers vs Wildly Inappropriate
15:20 The Kadeshi vs Get Off My Lawn
15:40 Vanguard Imperium vs Paisti Syndicate
16:00 Perihelion Alliance vs Sev3rance
16:20 Against ALL Authorities vs DarkSide
16:40 Negative Ten vs Raiden
17:00 Pandemic Legion vs HYDRA RELOADED
17:20 Ushra'Khan vs Unaffiliated

The minimum wager must be 25,000.00 ISK. Yes, that low. The current payout odds (they fluctuate as new wagers are placed) can be found in the following Google spreadsheet: IX Tournament Odds

I have seeded every outcome with 250,000.00 ISK, so if you place a bet of 25,000.00 ISK on any of the matches right now, then you stand to win 212,500.00 ISK. Fifteen percent commission is applied to the total pot, taken by the house. Do take into the account the odds will change, mayhap even drastically, as new bets are placed on a match.

Bets may be placed by wiring the isk to David Vanthor with the team (alliance) you are placing the wager on listed in the reason box.

Trust is an issue, but I sincerely hope a few will take the step forward and place a bet. Remember, it's only for the first 8 matches occurring today. That includes Pandemic Legion vs HYDRA RELOADED ugh. I guarantee there's going to be a minimum of a few bets spread across the matches, the amounts will not be astonishingly large but they'll be something adding a little bit of juice to the games.

I'll be available before the first matches start through in-game chat room #GamblingDen. Feel free to join there, whether betting or not, and ask any questions or queries you may have, as well as place a few bets and brag about your accuracy in predicting results.

Parimutal Betting....?

SO if i put 50m bid on, and some other person puts a 1m bid on, - 15%

total of 51m

shared between both of the bets, = 25.5m each?

I make a loss?

The odds are set so that you get a ratio back of the money you put in depending on how big the other pot is.

In a case of betting on one match, everyone betted on one side, no bets on the other side? he takes his percentage out of the total pool, what would happen then?

If you placed a 50m bet against 1m on the other team, then you'd stand to win only 1m (assuming you are the only bettor) and the 1m bettors would have the chance to win 50m.

Best to place far smaller bets at the moment and see how the odds change. IE, 25k-1M range.

Alright, we had some great fun and great times.

The PL vs Hydra fight got a big pool going for it and it was really favoring Hydra - looks like everyone was expecting PL to throw that fight!


We brokered 700M ISK in Bets today with 100% satisfied bettors.

We'll be back tomorrow for the finals day ALL DAY.

We are closing shop for the semifinals today - the Gambling Den will stay open for chat.

We expect to see some bigger betting tomorrow for the finals!

You can always make your bets over the forum or EVE gate - we'll take them.

EDIT : Realized you have to be able to wire the money - hope we can see you tomorrow.
