    I am basically copy/pasting all this from our last game...

    First off, please only place bets in this thread. Any talk about your bets or world cup games goes in the dedicated fifa thread: https://www.livingreefs.com/threads...orld-cup-discussion-thread.49631/#post-660194


    Betting Rules

    1. All participants will start with 10000 Leefs (Living Reefs currency) .This is not real betting, its just a game.

    2. Once you place all your bets for the Group stage (round 1), you can only continue playing in the next round (Round of 16) if you have won enough leefs to make 1 minimum bet (use up all your 10k in Round 1). Any change left over from the original 10k Leefs will not be added to the total Leefs won. After Round 1 you can only continue with the Leefs you have won. If you dont have enough leefs to make a 1 minimum bet, you are out.

    3. Players will be allowed to place bets up until the day before the betted match begins.

    4. Odds/Payouts will be posted as the REAL Betting odds will be found and matched for our fun play.

    5. The matches are listed in the Image I Posted previously, anyone having trouble understanding the Image please ask. (this was done by cathic and i cant find the image he is referring to, if anyone can find it, please let me know)

    6. You cannot bet ahead on rounds, meaning, no future bets until brackets are closed (ie. Once we are all done with one round we start betting on the next round)

    7.Minimum and Maximum bets:
    Group Stage and Round of 16: 100 Leefs min bet and 1,000 Leefs max bet.
    Quarter Finals: 100 Leefs min bet and 2,000 Leefs max bet.
    Semi Finals: 500 Leefs min bet and 5,000 Leefs max bet.
    Finals: 500 Leefs min bet and no limit max bet.


    ROUND 1- How to play
    Choose 2 teams from each group you want to bet on. In the world Cup, 2 out of 4 teams in each group will advance to the next round so in Round 1 each group will have 2 winners.

    Team Bet - Each one of the two team selections is a bet. If any of your two selected team makes it to the next round you win the Team bet. You should choose the two teams you think will advance to the next round.

    Rank Bet – This is a bet for which position the chosen two teams will have. Either 1st place in the group or 2nd place. Only the first & second place winners in each group will advance to the next round so you're making one bet on two teams...if you get one out of two right, you dont win. You must have the correct 1st & 2nd place winners to win the bet.


    Sample bet:

    Group A

    Team: Brazil
    Bet amount: 500 leefs


    Team: Mexico
    Bet amount: 300 leefs

    Rank Bet
    1st place: Brazil
    2nd place: Mexico
    Bet Amount:100 leefs

    I will be posting the odds for Round 1 shortly. I am sure all this may be confusing to some of you but it is actually really simple so If you have any questions, please dont be shy to ask.

    Remember the best way to play this contest is by having no idea what is going on like I did the last time!

    Motor you are 2525 short, just increase some bets, those are j
    its basically following the format of the worldcup...you are picking 2 teams from each group that you think will advance and if any of those two make it you win the bet. Just copy paste one of our entries and change teams and bet amounts as you wish. This will get easier and easier as teams get eliminated...
