NFL Sports Betting

Post by Dark_Radiance »

Vesper Inn Casino Is proud to announce that it will provide NFL sports Betting for the NFL Season!!

I will be offering wages on any NFL game, yep all 16 games every week. Min. Bets will be 1100, with a max of 11000 PER game. This will be a Vegas style ran bookie system, with point spreads in place, and all bets at 10/11 odds. Meaning for every 1100 bet, you will win 1000, with return of 2100. I will also be providing an Under/Over bet on each game. More Details on bets can be found below.

Hours of Operation:
Thursday: 7-8pm est.
Friday: 7-8pm est.
Saturday: No set time, just pm me in IRC as Darkradiance if you see me on
Tuesday: 7-8pm est. Winnings pickup only, no bets may be placed at this time

*Winnings may be picked up at any of these set times, also may be picked up by pm'ing me in IRC as Darkradiance if I"m available*


Placing a Bet:
To place a bet, simply come down to the Vesper Inn Casino during the hours of operation, Located just 1 screen south of the Vesper Inn. (see picture below)

When you have decided who you want to bet on, simply tell me the Bookie on duty the Team you wish to place a bet on, and the amount. Then purchase the correct number of casino chips off the vendor, Season:

Dull copper chips are worth 1100, Shadow are worth 5500, and gold is worth 11000. As you'll notice, the casino chips were made with a gm makers mark. It will also be quit easy to tell if you didn't buy any from the vendor as you're making ur bet. Once you have ur chips, simply hand them over to the Bookie and the bookie will write down your wager's. All winning bets will be available to be picked up the following day at the next hour of operation, NOT the same day.


Below is some Useful information about the different bets, and about the point spread.

The point spread: When placing a bet, the team you bet on must "cover the spread." This means the team must win or not lose by a predetermined margin of points.

Example: Buffalo @ at New England
Favorite NWE
Point spread -11

If you bet on New England, New England must win by 12 points for you to win your bet. If you bet on Buffalo, any of the following will declare you a winner.
(a) Buffalo wins the game.
(b) The game ends in a tie.
(c) Buffalo lose the game by not more than 11 points.

If New England wins by exactly 11 points, the wager is declared a push and all money is refunded.

Under/Over Bet:
You may wager that the total score of the game will be more or less than the number listed in the Under/Over section. It makes no difference which team covers the spread. Simply add the final score of each team. Payouts are the same as the other, which are 10/11 odds. Meaning a 1100 bet will win 1000 and return 2100 total.

The hours are very slim, will we be able to make bets on the boards?

Also most casino's if a "push" happens, the casino takes...just an FYI

I made a pretty good amount of money. Was 100% going into the GB/Chicago game, lost that one and still can't believe NE didn't beat the spread.

Good day for you, friends. That happened to me yesterday. I played the casino and got some problems, but to my astonishment, the support doesn`t have any chat. So they can`t help me with mail ...the terrible thing - all my money in the casino that I still have can never be reached. I think that the system is corrupt. We will never play there. What do you know about that casino https://syndicate.casino/en-ca? Do they have the same problem or their chat is live and you can write to them at any time and any questions?
