Fat tony just gave me 200,000:)

the odds are what they are it makes no difference what the little story of the race is.
kinda cool that's what that story was though when you won with the longshot

    After 50 or so times betting the long odds dog out of boredom I finally won because fat tony said so. Is that the only way the long odds dog wins? Does having fat tony fix the races increase the odds I wonder...

    I can assure you having Fat Tony doesn't affect that dog track....I've got the gangster and im still losing way more than winning :lol:

    springfield downs is much better since they've updated it, it was post where people played over and over again and one only once since the got the downs but now I've been noticing I am winning more It seems like for me Drool Britannia and Dogbiscuit win the most often one of those two are always my bet

    Every time I play the dogs I always select the $200 k payout and yet to hit it. I seem unlucky with that sort of thing, took me neally 6 months to get a jackpot on the scratchies.

    I only bet on the longshot, and since the change; I haven't won even once yet. I used to hit at least once a week before.

    I change between the dogs after the update and I can see with my screenshots of every win that I've won 476.000 since it updated. I only once won the 200.000 Price and I dont think it has anything to do with Tony

    I started betting after the changes, always the 200,000 and prize never won.

    Then I changed my strategy. Now, I always bet on the same dog. Since I love bulldogs, I chose Drool Britannia. I've won twice, not the highest prize though, but hey, it's better than nothing !!

    I'm a wimp - I just go with the 2:1 dog every time. I win more than 50% of the time, though - I should keep closer track, but it feels like I win 75% of the time. It's not gonna give me world-changing money, but I think it adds up!

    Wow, I must be lucky, I've hit the 200k twice now. I always bet the longshot I figure I won't really miss the 2k I'd I lose but winning the 200k helps tremendously with buying land or the latest quest building.

    This is exactly what happened to me 2 days ago. First time jackpot for me but I had only lost maybe 8 - 10 times before hitting it. A few days before I won the 40 000. Ive also won the jackpot on the scratch tickets 4 times. Guess Im pretty lucky for a newb. :)

    I always bet on Not A Chance when he (she?) is 9-1 or 19-1 and have had pretty good luck so far. I've hit twice in a row a few times using that method.

    Could be that it's truly random ( likely ) but I'm sticking with it.

    I did bet on the long shot till I won (it took a while). Now I always bet on the 9-1 odd and I win 1 out of 5 times approximately, so I'm making some money. Fat Tony does not fix the races for me but Legs does :lol:

    I havent won in a long, long time. Does the percentage bonus effect the payout?
