This proposition is part of the World Championships contest, for which there is a $50 prize. To be eligible, players must make at least 10 bets and risk at least 400 points on any of the contest's propositions.
Saturday, September 28
Action is secret until it reaches 250 points. Until that time, odds reflect the "morning line" established by the house.
The odds reflect the current probability of any given outcome, and they determine how many points a player will earn for a winning bet.
For example, if a player bets 100 points on a winning outcome that closed at 4/1 odds, 500 points will be deposited in that player's account: the original 100-point stake plus 400 points of profit.
Odds are designed to reflect the chances an outcome has of happening. If an outcome has 4/1 odds, Rouleur Derby's players have judged it to have a 1-in-5 chance of happening. "Even odds" are represented as 1/1, meaning the outcome has a 50 percent chance of occuring.
Odds will never be shorter than 1/10, yielding 1 point of profit for every 10 points bet -- a 10 percent gain.
On the other hand, there is no limit to how long odds can get.
Because Rouleur Derby is a parimutuel, odds are always changing. As more points are bet on a given outcome, its odds get shorter. Points are paid out based on the odds at the time that betting closes, not the odds at the moment a bet was made.
Odds are extremely volatile during early betting. With this in mind, the house sets a "morning line" for each option. This morning line lasts until a minimum number of points have been bet.
Once a proposition goes dynamic, the morning line continues to be displayed for any outcomes that have not yet received any bets.
The morning line is displayed in grey with an asterisk.
All bets have the potential to affect odds, sometimes drastically. To help a player anticipate these changes, the odds will update to show how any proposed bet will affect them.
Important note: Players must still click the "Place bet" button for a bet to be registered.
Until the bet has been registered, the theoretical odds are blue and italicized.
