    So, I recently came across a pretty fun site. It is totally free. When you sign up, you are staked with $0.10. You can bet on whatever you want, and when you manage to make it to $20, you can cash out and they will cut you a check. If you manage to ever go below your original stake, they just give you another dime.

    The site makes money because the set-up of the betting has you click on random ads, but they aren't annoying pop-ups or anything. Also, they pretty much bank on the idea that people will stop playing before they make it to $20 and they get to keep the ad revenue.

    I've been playing for just a couple days, betting on the US Open... and I'm already up to about $4.00... it's pretty sweet! Obviously this isn't a way to get rich... but it's a lot of fun and you actually have the chance to cash in with a couple bucks if you stick with it.

    Click this link to sign up!

    Make sure to use the link I provided to sign up. It will automatically add you to my buddy list. I like having buddies too because when you win, the site gives me a bonus and we can see what each other is betting on. Have fun sports fans! Post here if you sign up so I know who my buddies are!

    While I'm sketchy on why this is a sticky, I've signed up. I really enjoy this type of thing but I am also really bad at it - last time I was in Vegas I did quite a bit of betting since I wasn't 21, but was able to place bets through other people fairly easily... let's just say I would have been better off trying to sneak onto slot machines.

    Here's hoping this goes a little better, maybe I'll learn a thing or two for the return trip, lol.


    EDIT: I have to say I really like the feel of the site, the general lack of professionalism "No, screw the advertisers" "Sign me up, bitch" etc. is kind of fun.

    I already told Aeolus who I was, but it must be a good site to make Aeolus have a sig!

    I stickied it because it applies to all sports... and this is the Sports sub-forum. Also, gambling never goes out of style... so it will always be relevant! ;)


    And RBG don't get too excited lol... I'm going to lose the sig in about a week. In general I don't believe in them unless for spreading a message... and I think people will like this site!

    Nice find. I put a bet on a match in the SPL since I have no idea about any american sports and there's not much football going on in england until the weekend. This looks really cool. :)

    I signed up. I've put 1c on Glasgow Ranger, Fiorentina and Debrecen (just for a joke). I also 1c on a Rubin Kazan and AEK Combo bet.

    Signed up, but couldn't find the friends thing. I do have a friend listed, so maybe I didn't mess it up lol.

    Cool site, thanks for the link.

    That's why it's free, Shiv. Winning a few bets will allow you bet make bets on a larger scale.

    I signed up under Psycho on facebook a few days ago, I've been bringing in the cents with my awesome baseball betting skills. I've been helping my friend score real major money throughout the baseball season, I was just never comfortable with putting my money on the line on some of these sites. Not sure how to add other people to my buddy list though, I only have Psycho.

    I also know of a website that has a credits based betting system integrated into vbulletin. Might cost a bit to implement if its an add on or something, but it would be cool to have a forum-integrated betting tool

    Going to win a huge bet on this Real Madrid Xerez game that I put Real Madrid (-2.5) over Xerez, with an Over of 3.5. At 90.00 plus extra time it's 5-0 Real Madrid!

    Haha... ok so it's a little embarrassing that some people who signed up significantly later than I did have more money than me... but I'm glad you're all doing well.

    I've been getting hosed. Damn Green Bay and New England.
