Bookmakers allow users within the game to bet their in game bank balance on both real life and in game fights.
There are a number of bookmakers within the game. Just like in real life they will offer different odds on each fight. Also, any bookmaker can set a maximum bet for each fight, so you may want to shop around.
Bookmakers do not have to display odds for all fights.
Understanding fight odds
MMA Tycoon displays odds in two different ways - American and Decimal. You can change between the two displays using the drop down menu at the top of the page.
To understand each type of odds, check out our betting odds guide.
Your betting history
If you have previously bet at a bookmakers, you will be able to view your betting history, including your total winnings / losses. In other words, this section will tell you where it all went wrong (probably).
Real life fights
Real life MMA events will be added by admin and can be displayed by any bookmaker manager if they wish. Odds can be edited by the manager as they wish.
This value is for real life events only. Basically I am looking to gather information on betting practices and assess accuracy of bets / quality of predictions. As we have lots of users, once we have gathered a lot of info, I am hoping to use some complex equations to try and predict what's a good bet for future events. If it works I can share the information with people and hopefully we can all make some real money. I will update everyone how we're getting on with this - it's just a little background project so we're just gathering the data now rather than working on the equations.
What to do: Just enter how sure you are of the particular bet you are placing. If you are very unsure, select 10%. If you are really sure, select a higher number. If you don't want to enter a percentage, you don't need to - just leave it as NA.
In game fights
Odds are also offered on in game fights. A bookmaker can display odds on any fight within the game that is not a QFC fight.
When it comes to in-game fights, obviously the possibility of fight fixing is there as a temptation. In two words, don't bother.... seriously, we'll find you out and you will be banned.
Fight tactics are stored for each fight and if it looks like you've thrown a fight to make some money (by using inappropriate tactics), your membership will be terminated. Obviously this does not just apply to betting against your own fights but if it appears that there is a betting cartel, you may all be banned.
If you believe you have seen strange betting or results, please report them in the forum, in the fight fixing section.
