Goldrush over at QWDrama
Today the QWDrama crew launched a new subsite on their network. Besides their wiki, articles and frag-of-the-week feature they now also got a betting service called Goldrush.
The new service Goldrush will be a fun thing to have along with the various competitions we have going on at the moment. The idea is simple and fun: each user starts with $250 (that's playmoney) and can then bet on games added to a list by the admins.

When a gambler bets on a game, the odds are affected depending on how much money he bet on his chosen option. When the game is finished, an admin confirms the game and the gambler can cash out his winning money, which are his placed bet * final odds. Easy and brilliant!

For now there will be a 20 day beta period starting off and the gambler with the most money on the 28th of April wins the beta period. For now there are only two possible bets up but expect more in the future. If you have a game scheduled with a clan, then make sure to drop by in #qwdrama and tell the admins so they can add your game to the betting schedule. It's necessary for the admins to know a set date for the game to prevent abuse; a gambler should never be able to place a bet after a game has been played of course!

The service itself is quite much like the one ESReality uses which i have been adding games to since the Ownage Tournament started. I'm not sure on if i should continue to add games to that one or not, but i think i will as it's a non-QW site and so on. Goldrush is a very nice site and i hope you have more stuff coming up.
