Yes, yes, the Betting Central was an April Fools' joke, but nevertheless we have eight winners!

Seven have bet on one match only and got the winner right, among these, the Twickenham Tigers even got the score difference right!

The crazy manager of the Runcorn Unicorn got all five winners right with a total score difference deviation of only 335 points (I guess some keyboard hacking was involved while placing the bets)!

I think I'll figure out some crazy formula to pay out some moneys, but Joel won and bet 100,000 G, so I dunno what to do about that... :shock:

Damn. I didn't realise we could actually win.

Not that it matters. I won 0 G.

If the Unicorns hadn't hit the jackpot, I would have probably just left it at that, but it was pretty fun to figure out an improvised system to calculate the earnings...

Nor did I. Still 7G for my curiosity is better than a slap in the face with a wet fish.

Pretty salty that my takings were reduced to 1533G... At least give me a patch!

If betting ever became a thing I think it would have to be limited to winner, points difference and winner with a headstart. And then award prizes that aren't monetary.

Thanks for the April fools!
