Looking at my game history, it appears I "won" -$1 on Cyborg vs. Finney. What's up with that?

I mean, I know Cyborg was a huge favorite at -950, but betting a buck on her shouldn't mean I lose the dollar when she wins!

It likely means one of two things: You only bet said dollar or you did that AND didn't make any correct picks for the event. And odds of -950 basically means that to win a dollar, you've got to bet (going by how the site works) $10.

Haha...i think it was the site's way of penalizing you for betting $1 on a fighter with -950 odds.

No, it doesn't mean any of those things

1. I didn't "only bet said dollar", I also bet $999 on Werdum to beat Fedor, which paid off.

2. I also made enough correct picks to get 28 points and $145

3. Winning even at odds as high as -950 should pay out a positive amount. Even if the game can't give me a 10 cent payout, I shouldn't lose a dollar.

If there's some bug that awards negative money at high odds, it should be fixed.

If you bet a $1 on a fighter thats at -650 it comes out to 0 on the playgrounds betting. Its always been like that

Except I didn't.

I bet $1 on a fighter who was at -950.

And I didn't win $0. I "won" $-1.

Why is that so hard for you to understand

LOL. At most you could have won nothing. Maybe the site decided to punish you for risking something for nothing.

I know it sounds stupid to bet a dollar on -950 odds, but that dollar let me do a two-bout parlay that paid out way better than if I had just done a straight bet on one bout.

yes and it meant exactly that. To win positive money you needed to bet more than the $1 you did
