You Bet 2022

With testing beginning tomorrow, i thought it was time to bring this back out of hiding, so welcome to the Clip The Apex betting game 2022. the annual thanks to the original creator Greenlantern101 & for newcomers, regulars that need a refresh, Youbet is Gambling with fake money on the F1 races for the 2022 season, If you like a bet with Fake Money or 'Brogans' as they are called around here, you're in the right place. im going to keep things basically the same as it has always been under previous management, as "if it aint broke, dont fix it"

The rules

1. If you want to play? Just post a message with your bet (rule 5) and you are in.

2. In each round you can ‘claim’ an income of £20. You can do this automatically by simply placing a bet or If you wish to claim this income without spending it just post a message saying ‘Bank’. Failure to do this will result in you not receiving the £20. You can ‘bank’ as many £20 incomes as you wish to save for a larger bet at a future race. You can use as much or as little of this claimed £20 income as you see fit, for example if you place a £5 bet the remaining £15 will be banked.

3. You get extra income for a season long competition, that is effectively a 24th round of the championship, £50 to bet on the champion. that must be spent in full either 50 on the winner or 25 each way

4. Your bank account balance will include your income (per rule 2) & your winnings. This bank balance can be used in full or in part to place bets with & will run throughout the game. Even if you spend all your money you can still claim your £20 income in the next race.

5. To place a bet, post in this thread, stating your driver to win, your money & if you are betting 'each way'. Just remember each way bets cost double the stated amount. Please see the examples below.

6. Maximum 1 bet per round , Multiple bets will be not be counted (expect for the opening round in bahrain as explained in rule 3)

7. All bets are on the winner. Each way bets can be placed at 1/5th odds for a place 1st - 4th. All winning bets are calculated by spreadsheet formula based on odds, If you are unsure how each way betting works please see the examples below.

- If you £20 bet on Hamilton to win at 8/11 he wins, you would get £34.55 (including stake). but if you want to go £10 Each way at 8/11 & he wins it would return £28.73 (including stake). but if he finished 2nd, 3rd or 4th. it would return £11.45 (including stake).

- If you £20 bet on Perez to win at 8/1 he wins, you would get get £180 (including stake). but if you want to go £10 Each way at 8/1 & he wins it would return £116 (including stake). but if he finished 2nd, 3rd or 4th. it would return £26 (including stake).

- If you £20 bet on Mick Schumacher to win at 3000/1 he wins, (i want to watch the race, where that happens ;) ) you would get £60,020 (including stake). but if you want to go £10 Each way at 3000/1 & he wins it would return £36,020 (including stake). but if he finished 2nd, 3rd or 4th. it would return £6,010 (including stake).

Just to clear up any confusion, you arent limited to £20 per race, your allowed to bet as much or as little as you have in your account

8. The odds are taken from a randomly chosen betting shop & will be posted when available. In the event of odds not being available by the Monday of the GP weekend I will make something up.

9. All bets must be in before 1st practice or they wont be counted (exception see rule 9)

10. Everyone has 1 Joker to be used over the season, because we all forget, but that would have to be in before qualifying starts

11. I will post everyone's balance only after the official race result is announced. (let me now if you think ive messed up as that can happen & i will double check LOL)

12. If your driver doesn't run in the race for some reason, you choose can to take the replacement, (ie Hamilton > Russell or Perez > Hulkenburg in 2020) or you can choose to have your money banked.

13. in the case of a Belgian GP type scenario happening again. all money will be refunded

14. The player with the most money at the end of the season is the champion & gets added to the wall of champions. Other 'special' awards will be given out at end of the season for which ever reasons I see fit.

Wall of champions
2014 - Fenderman
2015 - Titch
2016 - Greenlantern101
2017 - rufus_mcdufus
2018 - gethinceri
2019 - Angel
2020 - Greenlantern101
2021 - rufus_mcdufus
2022 - ????????

All is to say is good luck & finish off last season that their was investigation into Youbet Abu Dhabi & there was Wrongdoing but we aren't going to explain why or disclose any punishments, they just been found a new place in the company

Going to have a small change here. I didn't see that the championship bet could be each way. In that case, please change my bet to:

£25 each way on Lando Norris for the championship.

£20 on George Russell for the win in the race

Cheers Mr Bookie 👍

1st race – 20 on Max to win
Subsequent races – half my total pot on Max to win, rounded up to the nearest 5
Championship – 50 on Max
