We all love a good Neville Neville or something ridiculous like Moon Unit so why not have a dose of these bad boys:

5 – Misty Hyman:

Former American swimmer that had a bloody hard time breaking her way on to the US team.

 

4 – Karen Cockburn:

A Canadian gymnast whose name has a long-lasting effect on you.

 

3 – Dick Pole:

His position was a pitcher; he was destined for a name like that.

 

2 – Ron Tugnutt:

A ballsy kind of player.

1 – Rusty Kuntz:

No funny quip needed.

More Awards Than Arsenal’s Trophy Cabinet

Back once again with some BetDash action and we’re pretty much well acquainted with the game up to this point. We’ve looked at the basics of the game and in part 2 we looked at a logged in account to see the way pending and settled bets displayed along with the game countdown and a brief look at challenges.

Today we’ll have a butchers at the Trophy Cabinet, My Mates and the Game Feed.

  • Trophy Cabinet

I love this section of the site because it lets you keep track of exactly where you’re at and it gives you the opportunity to use awards to place bets without having to put some of your balance at stake. That can be the difference between bankruptcy and reaching the hallowed million balance.

Some of the awards featured are Jammy Dodger(You must win 1 bets with cumulative odds over 25/1),Trainwreck(You must go bankrupt 1 times to unlock) and Big Kahunas(You must win 1 bets while risking your entire bankroll using the Bet All of your bankroll booster)

  • My Mates

It’s pretty self-explanatory because it’s where you can add friends, check followers and invite friends to the game. Inviting a friend is recommended as it will unlock your Mr Popular award giving you an extra 20k to play with.

Underneath the ”Current Game” tab on the left you can see the ”All Time High Score” tab which will allow you to view the highest score that your mates have reached and their current bankroll and heat index. See someone who’s on fire? Why not click on their profile and copy some bets from them to boost your balance.

It’s a feature such as this that differentiates BetDash from a normal sports betting site. Where as you would have no way of seeing another customer’s bets, here you can and it may help you reach the million quicker.

The last of the three tabs on the left is your BetDash rank which is displayed as #300, if you are that rank in the BetDash game.

  • Game Feed

Finally we come to the Game Feed which is located under the Bet History section of your account. This shows any updates that are happening in relation to your game. As you can see from my feed I’ve redeemed the max 25k in challenges that are allowed within the game.

Below the Congrats! message you can see a Congratulations!! notification which shows that my inkling for spotting a bad bet were correct and I have been awarded 2.5k for successfully challenging someone else’s bet.

So that concludes part 3 of the BetDash over-view and we’ll resume it tomorrow with a look at the Leaderboard, buy in options and Boosters.

BetDash Pending Bets Screen

So yesterday we had an introduction to the brilliant BetDash sports betting game which outlined the basic concepts and rules behind the game. Today we’re having a look at what the site looks like when you’re logged in.

As you can see, I’ve highlighted some of the features with a red box and will give a brief explanation of them. We’ll start from the top.

  • Time Remaining

As we explained, the game lasts a total of 21 days and once the clock has expired, your game is over and you can create a new one. As from the screenshot here, you can see that I’m roughly four days into it and not doing too well. If you look up fleno 24 on BetDash you might think it’s worth challenging some of my bets. Which leads us to the next  feature.

  • Challenge Won

Okay, so I’m not doing too well myself in this game but I know enough to recognise that there’s a guy on the site who just made a ludicrous bet that I know isn’t going to come up for him. So what do I do? If it was a two team game for example I’d just back the other team but the Challenge Won section of the site in this screenshot is for a horse race.

Basically I can’t tell you the exact winner but I know it’s not going to be his selection. So I challenge the bet. Remember the winner of the challenge wins the bonus. The loser loses nothing! Each day you visit the site consecutively, the value of the bonus increases. The first bonus received is for 2,500 and it rises incrementally when you log in each day.

  • Heat Index

The Heat index tells you how hot you are at a glance! It’s a five flame visual indicator that shows how well you have been doing in the game recently. The more profit you gain from winning bets, the higher your flame rating. Sadly I can only marvel at some people’s flameability because I don’t know if I’ve had mine beyond three but it’s a great incentive to study the form and make better picks.

  • Pending Bets/Settled Bets/Challenges

So finally this brings us to the highlighted box on the left of the screen. This is where you can see the pending bets on your account. In the picture I have a tennis treble showing the amount staked and the potential returns should the bet be successful. Once this has been completed it will appear in the Settled Bets(could it be any more straightforward) and will give the details of whether the bet was a winner or loser.

For ease of settlement the colour you want to see is green, as all winners are highlighted that way and any losing selections are in the dreaded red. It’s a good thing I support Manchester United otherwise I’d be sick to the teeth of the colour red. Finally in the section below Settled Bets there is the Challenges section which was touched upon earlier but it will show the details of any bets you’ve Challenged.

So that’s your BetDash tutorial for today. I’m still going to be betting, challenging, laughing at other people’s bets and crying over my own until tomorrow when I’ll show more features of the game such as boosters, awards, pay structures and more.

Reading through the Wikipedia page of  deceased former casino owner Benny Binion, I discovered that he was a former cutting horse owner.

The first thing that sprang to mind was the image of a reality TV show featuring an equestrian Michelin Star recipient brandishing a carbon steel chef’s knife.

Fortunately for the sake of entertainment purposes it turned out to be something quite different.

In reality, Cutting is an equestrian event in the western riding style where a horse and rider are judged on their ability to separate a single animal away from a cattle herd and keep it away for a short period of time.

I’m not sure if I could sit through a full tournament of this, but a 2 minute 43 second video was good enough to keep me entertained.
