Elite Betting Game Help

The Elite Betting game is a game in which you will be able to hopefully predict the outcome of the Elite class in Grand Prix Racing Online, you will recieve points based on who you correctly foresee and bonus points for correctly foreseeing more than three places in a row or the whole top 8.
You will be able to make your choice until the start of the race at 20:00 CET Time (19:00 GMT, 18:00 GMT in Summer), there is a count down timer on every page above the main menu which tells you how long you have until betting has closed for the next race. If you prefer to not have the clock in the Australian Timezone please click AEST or AEDT and then you may select CET Time on the page it takes you to after clicking that link.

If for any reason a race is delayed after the normal race time, the time in which you can place a bet will not change.If it is postponed for more than 12 hours, the bets may be reopened for that race until the start time if the admin has been made aware of the postponement. Please note the Admin does not play GPRO or rarely login to GPRO, and is only normally only contacted to reset the game at the end of the season, any questions / concerns should be emailed to the admin.

If there is a problem with the script that stops bets from being placed after 20:00 CET Time, any player who places or changes a bet after that time or the start of the race will have there bet for that race cancelled, as the database is only backed up at certain times I cannot change the bet back to the original one if it was changed, also think of this as a warning as it makes the game unfair for those who play it properly if a player takes advantage of a broken or improperly run script that player may have his account suspended for a period of time, or banned permantly if it is a serious offence.

The results for the race should be updated within a few hours of the end of the race via an automatic script, if for some reason this fails they will be corrected as soon as it comes to the webmasters attention

From time to time there are small updates made to the server that this game is ran on these updates usually are run at about 11pm Or 12am Australian Eastern Time (2pm or 3pm GMT Time) on weekends or the updates may happen sometimes on weekdays if they are urgent this may bring a downtime of 5-10 minutes while the server is rebooted and software is correctly restarted, if there are updates that will take longer the webmaster will display a notification on the main page if he is notified before hand.

If You Find any mistakes or problems please notify the Elite Betting Game Admin Jason Canobie, Via Email (Email is listed in my profile in GPRO).
