    What is a PWN$ Wager?

    This is a non-standard PWN$ game, keep this in mind if you have any PWN$ related items. With that said, unlike the other games, this one is based off luck rather than skill. A simulator is used to determine who wins the wager.

    Presently, there is only one wager game which involves betting on another member's horse.

    How does it work?

    The wager thread lists the members that you can bet on as well as wager related details such as the bet and prize. Basically, each member is allowed to place ONE wager bet on one of the members listed. This choice CANNOT be changed. In order to place a wager you must use the link on the thread to send the wager payment and state who you're wagering on. Then you must reply stating your wager again after you've sent the payment.

    In regards to the wager amount, it is a fixed rate and thus you cannot use an amount higher/lower than what's stated. For example, if it says 100 PWN$, you must wager that exact amount.

    Anyone who wagers on the winning member will get the listed payout rate. Those who do not win will lose their bet.

    The results are posted in both video and text format. Here is an example of the video results of the simulator:

    How can I be one of the members listed?

    Generally, we use staff, high post count members, and Veterans but will often have other special opportunities for those who do not fit that criteria to be involved. Remember, that ANYONE can play the game but only select members are actually "in it".

    Is this legal?

    Of course, PWN$ aren't real currency! And remember, this is just a game...

    For any other questions or concerns, please use this thread or send a PM.

    Thanks,

    Soon.

    I'm just working on ensuring that the concept is clear and some minor technical stuff. Also, do you feel that the FAQ clearly explains this or is it a bit vague still? As for this game in particular, it's important that members clearly understand how it works for it to be successful.

    Maybe you should explain how to place bets,how much PWN$, and how much they gain.

    Also what if you made Pwnem casino for slots,games,bets, and trading.

    You basically just use the PWN$ sending feature and reply to the thread to document the wager.

    I'll make sure that's clear in the wager threads. Thanks for the feedback.
