Chairman Meowmix's Betting Emporium: https://meowbet.com/match/

This is the site set up by TEST's IT wizard for the Alliance Tournaments, and it transferred several hundred billion isk during ATX.

Anyone can bet, by setting up an account on TEST Auth (link from the site).

Bets are all calculated based on the percentage of money bet on each side, so basically, money controls the odds.

I'm not associated / affiliated / don't profit from this, just a happy customer.

apparently you also don't realize that restricting betting to bloc members ends up being quite boring as blues share many opinions regarding favorites, underdogs, ... (which results in terrible odds for the most popular matches).

Not much fun betting on PL or TEST when - if they do win - you get back maybe 10% more than you paid in.

Has any tournament ever generated less forum buzz? Oops

If CCP holds a Tournament and no one watches, did it really happen?

I saw well over 5000 when I started the stream. Not bad really, and quite high for anything on own3d.

The good old days of Unreal Tournament, fragging and sniping on Facing Worlds, listening to Foregone Destruction.......

I'm the one running Meowbet, the TEST Auth login is actually a hang over from when it was blues only, but now its open to anyone. All you need is a account on TEST Auth (http://auth.pleaseignore.com/), you don't need API keys.

In this context I would be remiss if I didn't pimp a second option for betting on the New Eden Open: www.wunder-bet.com. We will be running promotions throughout the week in which we offer free ISK to bet with, so follow us on Twitter (@wunderbet). In addition to betting, we offer information on the individual teams and a bracket to help you follow the action. Our first weekend was wildly successful and we expect this to continue, so join us for the rest of the tourney.
