    Sportsbook is a fun (not for real) sports betting application.

    I anticipate we will begin slowly and as interest and participation grows we have more and more activity to wager on. Right now we are just going to list the NFL Playoff games and as we (the staff) feel our way and learn the ins and outs of the app we will increase.

    I know that all our wagers will be based on odds and point spreads. After I enlist the bookie and have a better understanding of the game I will discuss it more here.

    A couple things I do know.

    Each members of GC will start with 10,000 whatever to bet with, maybe we will just call them points. If you run out of points to bet with the system will add 1000 back to your account. As the game goes on we will adjust that amount up or down as needed.

    The next few months will be a trial run of the games-I anticipate that in August we will reset the games and get ready for football season and all the other sports. This test run will give everyone a chance to lean the game, how to bet, and will also give us the chance for the bookies to know what they are doing. Once we reset in August that should be the only reset unless the game fails.

    For those that participated in our casino game, those funds that you earned will not transfer over. For one, this is an entirely different app and while luck does have some part of betting (I suppose) there is more of a skill level of this game than the casino game.

    Sometime Tuesday we will have the four NFL games ready for wagering (I hope) We will have a points spread that will be based on when we open the wagering, but we will not have the capability to change the spread as the real odds makers do. So if someone opens as 4 point favorite today, that will not change and will be paid that way.

    Please feel free to ask questions and we will answer them best we can.

    Id like to participate if possible. I don't have any points or way to wager anything yet. If points will be awarded in iterations, let me know and I'll just wait for them to show up.

    I never used the casino on the old platform. How do I access my points and where do I place my bets?

    Click on the Sportsbook tab at the top located between Forums and PickEm. From there you should be able to click on which game you would like to bet on, then after clicking on that, you should be able to click "place wager" out beside the action you would like to bet on.

    We currently only have the 4 playoff games this weekend posted as we work through it and see how the payouts and everything work. Those 4 games have since been closed, as they have all been played and the final one has been kicked off. I set them to close 5 minutes before kick.

    This site is helpful for figuring out what your payout would be for your potential bet. Just type in the odds that you are placing your wager at, then your bet amount, and wah lah... it gives you a payout amount that should match your winnings.

    I will give it a try, but if my luck is like it was for the ESPN and Yahoo football madness I am screwed already.
    I assume this will cover March Madness also?

    Oh yea, most definitely. We eventually plan on incorporating all sports, not every game I don't think. But multiple games in all sports.
