Asks betting station

Postby askstoomuch on Wed Nov 30, 2011 12:37 pm

Well I wanted to make a bet, but kelten wasn't here and his betting game is quite dead.
So I will start a new one just because I'm bored and, well, someone has to.

I made the rules a bit simpler to make it less complex.

rules
You can bet on anything you want - the results of a game, or things happening in the comic, or even real world events for that matter.
But if you win, you’ll have to claim your money yourself. I'm not going to warn you if you win
betting on a game you host is illigal and i will make you do 20 push ups when you try it.
1-10: Win 1 gold for each ten gold submitted: This is pretty much bound to happen
1-5: Win 1 gold for each 5 gold submitted: Pretty good odds for it to happen
1-1: Win 1 gold for each 1 gold submitted: About even odds
5-1: Win 5 gold for each 1 gold submitted: This is pretty unlikely to happen
10-1: Win 10 gold for each 1 gold submitted: U MAD BRO?

Other odds may apply. It depends on the bet.

Let the betting begin :D

Do grammar mistakes count as well? :evilgrin:

Anyways, since it has been established multiple times, and you forgot to mention the not allowed to bet for games you run... I'm gonna say that everyone in Threads of Reality dies. 100 gold.

impossible chance of winning 10-1
low chance of winning 10-1
great chance of winning 5-1
victory is near 3-1

Oh, and a bonus: whenever you catch me making a spelling mistake, you get a cookie and one gold for free.


Let the betting begin :D


So how many gold is that?

Oh, and dam- um not going to spell that one correctly. of should be off, corretion should be correction, it's instead of its as it's not possessive, but totally unneeded if you apply proper grammar. And I think you might have meant Oh instead of ow, unless you were getting hurt. So: "Oh, and Godbot, thanks for the correction; the only way I'll learn is when people tell me what I do wrong."

narie, be careful, it's address rather than adress.

I want to bet 4 gold that Asks is going to make at least 1 mistake in his next post in this thread (and yes, i instead of I counts as one mistake, also, forgetting commas or dots doesn't count.)

It's not the spell checker, your spelling is fine! It's just wee grammatical things now you need to watch out for and making sure you're using the correct version of each word.

Well, with this one gold, what do you say I bet it on Asks getting 5 posts in a row correct without misspelling within a month?

Hey, if I win, we both win. And if I don't, and you don't call off the fixing your spelling, I'm the better one to shoot for winning. By the way, you got one word both right and wrong in the last post. "Ill" is sick, I'll is a conjunction.

You can't be saying that, or you'll easily win your gold. By the way, is forgetting the ' in doesn't a spelling mistake?

And that's more money than if it were impossible odds, and I wouldn't say that you doing that is impossible.

I think there's a slight problem there though, should both low odds and impossible odds have the same payout?

Ka-ching.

Oh, right. I'd totally make a bet that Almond the Squirrel (Threads of Reality) will always have an accent, but won't ever settle on a consistent one.
