    Lightbulb Unreasonable Percentages on Donkey Bets

    I registered a Juicy Stakes tourney tonight... I bought a $21 donkey bet to win, place, or show... it's telling me my payout amount if I win will be only $38.. I see several players that have placed bets to just come in 1st thru 10th... and there payouts are 4 to 6 times the amount. What's up with that ? I waited several minutes and re-checked to find the same bad math. I think I just must not be the proper donkey. I'll say hee-haw many times to increase my payout.

    I wouldn't do donkey bets. I don't think they have the odds quite figured out yet, so they are severely against you.

    You have to wait until everyone is signed up, the odds wont be right until the tourney actually start, I do donkey bets all the time, it gets the odds correct

    Nothing wrong with the percentages and odds, they just take a while to update and when there is 20 players or whatever, the odds are going to look horrible.

    It's like betting a horse: those odds change right up until the race

    Funny it seems to give some of the better players better percentages. What do I know?
