My Detective placed bets at the track today January 01, 2007. This was after the 6AM race and before the 2PM race. I placed bet on both LIGHTNING & TORNADO but I didn't get paid any $$$$!!!How is this possible??It is like my picks just didn't counted, like a Florida election vote!!

Is it really possible to make money out of the Race Track in this game ? I never placed a bet, I would like to know the chances of winnings. Thanks in advance.

It is easier to lose money than to make it, but sometimes you can get lucky. Same as in real life I guess. :D

Not much help, but I personally have lost more than won, but others have a good record of winning.

If you look at the overall stats on the Game Info page, it looks to me like the house wins 51% of the time.

Of course I have done no calculations so someone will surely prove me wrong :p

It's not on purpose Ara, trust me!

Here are the stats on the Game Info page:

The Ponies
Races Run: 2029
Total Amount Bet: $67391715
Total Winnings: $67052509
Wins By Three-Legged Tom: 8

So the house has taken $339206 than bet, so its about 51%, though I would say its nearer to 50.5% :)

Ichiban, just a quick thought... to get your money you have to re-visit the race track and "collect your winnings" which is a link once you go back to the track.

The money doesn't get automatically paid out.

Three-legged Tom hasn't won since I've been here, and goodness knows I've tried...

I remember seeing game info a few weeks back where the players were actually ahead of the house by ever so slim a margin. Let's break the bank people! :)

If you keep track of every race, and bet with the odds ie if Naked Joe hasn't won for 30 races and the odds are 15/1 then there's a good chance you'll come out on top.

I think Lightning and Tornado and Ginger are a waste of time. The odds vs their consistency isn't good enough.

Naked Joe & Cataphrac are the best bets if you keep track of them.

Three Legged Tom bah. He wins about every 230 races. He won about 115 or so races ago. I've only ever seen Greyling win big on 3LT.
