    One time I won 200k, I just bet that one every time. I will win someday again.

    I always pick Drool Brittania. Worked out for a while, then went on a cold streak. I think he's turning it around now though.

    At first I used to pick one dog and stick to that one. My winnings were decent but didn't last long. Now I bet the highest odds and haven't won but someday I might :lol:

    My strategy is to keep it in storage, and not think about it.

    In the morning I bet the one with the smallest odds, the rest of the day I bet the one with the largest. I win a fair amount of time.

    @ Hotandheavy - the option to "not play" isn't available.


    I play the lowest odds and win 90% of the time.

    I always pick the 12,000 payout. Whatever one that is. Sometimes I win...sometimes I don't.

    I read somewhere that no matter the choice of dog you go with, the odds are that you will ultimately lose money in the long run. *shrugs* Some folks have better luck at it, so it can appear opposite, I guess.

    Personally, I bet that I will never win, so I never put any money down on it. I prefer to invest my meager funds in property expansions, etc.

    Won it 3 times already.
    I'm pretty sure that i haven't bet 300 hundred times, probably about 150 times so its a winner for me

    It was like this for awhile, but they've made the odds more favorable at some point in the last 2-3 months. One of the blogs posted the current odds that they pulled from the game files. Doing the math, the payout averages out to $3030 for every $2000 bet regardless of which odds you bet on.

    I tested this last month by betting on the 2-1 dog every time and keeping a tally. On 48 bets, I won 30 times. This is close enough to the 50.51% probability in the game files for the 2-1 dog and works out to $3750 per bet.

    Since then, I've bet on the 99-1 dog and lost every time. As soon as I recoup my losses by winning once, I'm going back to 2-1.

    always go for the 99-1 since the $2000 it costs to gamble really is nothing to me at the point i'm at in the game.

    won it a few times now

    I always go for the second dog on the list, whomever it is. I rarely loose.

    I bet Drool Brittaniano matter the odds & have a great deal of money...mind you it is far from a daily or week orrurarnce....but at least once a month, I'll win...I've even one the largest bet 4 time since starting this under a year ago.
