    Thought this might be quite fun for us all, as Atlantic is mostly USA and UK players so i decided to do a little booking.

    Im on atlantic upstairs and taking bets from 1mill to 10 mill on the England v USA world cup game tonight, char is Thunderz and guild is name is Bookies world cup tonight, Abreviation is [BWCT].

    Odds are;
    England to WIN @ 1/2
    USA to WIN @ 4/1

    (That breaks down as; if England win you get 1 mill for every 2 mill you bet. If USA win you get 4 mill for every 1 mill you bet)

    Please place your gold in a bag all checks visable and a book with your name and your bet (England to WIN or USA to WIN and your stratics name).

    E.g. 10mill in bag, book with "england to win, thunderz"

    I'll contact you from your stratics name to arange to meet if you win.

    Happy betting Sosaria.

    Thunderz (icq incase you want to contact me is; 414-002-161)

    Yep i can do that.

    Odds;
    2/1

    (so a 1mill bet would mean you win 2 mill for every 1 mill you bet)

    I want to bet, not because I even know the world cup was tonight (I hate sports), but just because I like 4-1 odds!

    IF ENGLAND DOES NOT BEAT US
    THEN YOU HAVE TO CHANGE THE NAME OF THE GAME TO SOCCER

    Grown-ups play SOCCER?? Professionally??? Wow, I thought that was just a game they let the highschool kids who weren't strong enough for the football team play, so they didn't feel too left out...

    Here's the main difference between European and US ppl:

    For Europeans Football:

    Game you play with your foot and a ball.

    For US ppl Football:

    Game you play mainly with your hands and egg shaped thing.

    Go figure rolleyes:

    No ... not a 1-1 tie. A 1-1 draw.

    Shouldn't the odds give a winning chance for both results? Like 1:1.1 if england wins and 1:4 for usa wins? What's the point of a bet on england if you lose 50% of your cash?

    - Apparently they are called 'vuvuzelas'. Sounds like a bee hive to me. At first it seemed annoying and now it is just background noise to me. I can still hear the sounds of he players just fine.
