Ok, as most of you know, I posted about the Fantasy Gambling Game on HTR a few days ago.

Before I start the game, and then have a zillion questions and confusions by members, I want to do a Demo Week of the game with a bunch of members. Reason is, so everyone will understand it and follow the right procedures.

So, I will have two Divisions, and I need 12 members to participate.

…moreOK, i have:












mikster (me)

Here are the Divisions:



























Matchups for Division-1:

Mantaray vs Rushing

Leaf_Fan vs r_milley

Cam vs edmontonrules

Games to bet on:

Division 1

Janurary 27th

Senators @ Stars

January 29th

Wild @ Oilers

January 30th

Flyers @ Devils

Januray 30th

Predators @ Blue Jackets

Matchups for Division 2:

Sands vs mikster

WeStSiDe bs Bruin

Tradedude vs bruinfan37

Division 2

January 27th

Predators @ Sabres

Januray 28th

Red Wings @ Devils

Januray 28th

Wild @ Canucks

Januray 30th

Penguins @ Capitals

Every member starts with 25 points.

Place the bet for a hockey game before the hockey game starts. Do NOT place all bets for every game in one day. For example, Mantaray places a bet for the first hockey game only. After that hockey game is finished, he will place his bet for the next game.

When to place bets:

The deadline to place bets is at 6:30 PM Eastern Time. For afternoon games, the deadline is at 12:45 pm Eastern Time.


I will use Mantaray vs Rushing as an example (remember, both start with 25 points).

Mantaray bets 5 points that the Senators will beat the Stars.

Rushing bets 8 points that the Stars beat the Senators

If the Senators win, then Mantaray gains Rushing’s 8 points, and are added to his total of 25 points, making it a total of 33 points.

Vice versa with Rushing if the Stars win.

If Rushing bets 8 points for a tie, and Mantaray 5 points that the Senators win, then here is what happens if the Senators tie the Stars:

Rushing wins both his 8 points and Mantaray’s 5 points. He will add 13 points to his original 25, totaling it to 38.

If neither placed a bet for a tie, and the Senators tie the Stars, then both Mantaray and Rushing lose whatever points they betted. So, if Mantaray betted 5 points and Rushing 8 points, then Mantaray is down to 20 points, and Rushing is down to 17 points.

If a member does not place a bet by the deadline, he/she will lose the same amount of points as the total score of the hockey game. For example:

Mantaray does not make a bet on the Senators and Stars game. The final score is 4-2 Stars, total of goals in the game is 6, so that means that Mantaray loses 6 points from his 25 points (down to 19 points).

Ok, that’s about it. Ask as many questions before the deadline on January 27th, please…don’t want to answer questions at the last minute.

As for the members who are not in this DEMO, but want to join the game, watch carefully so you will get the hang of it.

Take care alls



Every member must at least bet 3 points. Rushing asked a good question. He also said that it’d be cheap for a member to bet low number of points every game; he propose the idea of a member winning his own betted points. Thing is, a member could then always bet 3 points and win or gain those 3 points every time, keeping him/her on an even up and down scale.

We’ll see though. It’s 25 total points, not a whole lot so you have to be smart. Also, this is a DEMO and it’s almost like testing if these rules work and if anything needs to be changed.

For now, I will get a topic bubble for this game as soon as possible. How about calling Gambler’s Table? Anyway, bet on this post STATING EXACTLY THIS:

I Challenge (member’s name) for # points on (insert the date of the game); (team @ team).

  10. r_milley says:

    even though I dont know what it is, I’m in if there is still room

  11. Sands says:

    Gambling….. Hockey….. I’ve been doing it so….. yeah count me in.

  12. Hockey_Fan says:

    Someone holding your balls?

  13. Rushing says:

    OK, questions. Where do we do it? That is the betting. Is that the “BETTING” headline up at the top of the page?

    Second, since I’m matched up with Mantaray first, I’ll use him as an Xample. What if he’s a cheapie let’s say, and only goes out and bet’s “ONE” point each time? I go out and put 6-8 pts. each time. He isn’t going to lose any yet is going to gain if he wins.

    Should it not be, if YOU win, you get what YOU bet? He could be making pts out the behind yet losing practically nothing.(no offense Manta)

  14. edmontonrules says:

    Where do we place our bets?

  15. Leaf_Expert says:

    Yeah, your mother….

  16. Tradedude says:

    ya but you would look stupid betting 6-8 points over his 1 point.

    If he bets a point, don’t you think you would bet something similar?

    I don’t know how this thing works out, i like your 1st question, I’ll have to come back to see where we place our bets.

  17. Rushing says:

    That’s just it. Are we going to even know what the other person is betting?

  18. Tradedude says:

    I don’t know, ask mik.

    But I’ve pretty damn sure that we’ll know what the other person bets, i’m guessing on the little buddy list, and than someone will post it on a message to mik or trademan.

  19. mikster says:

    Sorry i missed a few things last night.

    Good question and i answered it in the post.

  20. mikster says:

    On here is good.

  21. Tradedude says:

    I challenge Bruinfan37 for 5 points on January 27th; Predators @ Sabres

    Winner: Buffalo Sabres.

    Please Reply to this Bruinfan37 is you accept this challenge and how many points you bet for…

  22. Cam says:

    I’ll bet 6 points that the predators are going to beat buffalo. So we just plae the bet here is that it.

  23. Cam says:

    against edmonton rules

  24. edmontonrules says:

    I’ll bet that 4 that Buffalo will win.

  25. edmontonrules says:

    There should be a rule about who gets to challenge first. Like if one person challenges for one game the other person gets to challenge the next game. Or the person with the least points gets to challenge.

  26. WeStSiDe says:

    I bet Bruin that The Sabres will beat the Predators, amount of bet- 5 points..

  27. WeStSiDe says:

    I have a question, what if the 2 ppl want the same team to win??

  28. Cam says:

    never mind we are in divsion 1. So that would mean ea are betting on the STars and Senators.

    I’ll bet edmontonrules 5 points that the stars will win

  29. Rushing says:

    Manta………5 pts that the Stars will win!!!

  30. Tradedude says:

    nah, too complicated.

  31. mikster says:

    DAMN IT!!!

    I forgot that too.

    If both members bet that the same team wins, and it does win, then both player win whatever points they betted.

    Sorry about that, missed that one.

  32. Tradedude says:

    and if the team loses????

    they just lose their points, stay the same, or…..???

  33. mikster says:

    They both lose points, yep.

  34. edmontonrules says:

    I’ll bet Cam 6 points that Dallas wins over Ottawa.

  35. Rushing says:

    ……..I’m playing Manta…..I still get his points no matter what. hehehehe

  36. Bruin says:

    I bet 10 points that Buffalo wins

  37. Rushing says:
