Bets [Your Steam Profile has to be public in order to place a bet]
Warning: All bets are final ! In the event you lost a bet items will not be returned.

Here is great video that shows essential things about betting:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TWgewxXbsBc


Important : Make sure you have set both your steam profile and inventory to public before placing a bet

How do I place a bet ?

1. Go to match page, and chose a team.

2. Click "Place Bet".

3. In bottom right corner click on button to add a bot.

Caution: D2L bots does not add you, they will only accept your request. If a bot adds you it is a scam attempt and should be reported here

4. Make sure that you have the bot on friends list or your invitation is pending (if bot is ignoring you, you have to block it and unblock).

5. Wait until it’s your turn to place the bet, bot will invite you to trade.

6. Bot will say Success on the trade window and give the protection code both on chat as well on the trade window.

Warning: Do not trade if the codes does not match with the code given on Dota 2 Lounge

7. Select the 4 items you wish to place, click “ready to trade” and “make trade buttons”

8. Check “My Bets” and Match Page on Dota 2 Lounge for the bet you placed.

Notes


Only 4 items can be placed for a single match.
Only Common, Uncommon and Rare items can be placed on bets.
Only wearable items can be placed (this is means chests, stranges, unusuals, essences etc. can not be placed)
You are given a brief window to place your bet, so be prepared to place your bet quickly once in trade.


I don’t see my bet on “My Bets”, What should I do?

If you don’t see your bet follow these instructions

Bot is ignoring me, What should I do?

Block that bot and unblock it. Here is list of all bots:
http://steamcommunity.com/groups/dota2lounge/discussions/0/864960354346466546/

Blocking can be simply done by visiting the bot’s profile page under “More”.
Unblocking can be done through your Steam Nickname> Friends> Blocked Users

Can I place a bet from my winnings/ returns?
Yes,

1. Go to match page and chose a team.

2. Pick items from returns section (under potential rewards).

3. Click "Place Bet".

How do I get my winnings/returns?

1. Go to "my bets".

2. Pick bot to queue for that has most of your items (or just any bot).

3. Add bot to friend list (bottom right corner).

4. Wait until bot invite you to trade.

5. When the bot finishes putting your items to the trade, click on ready and accept the trade.

I can't see the button to add bot to queue. What's wrong?

If you can't see buttons to add bot to queue in "my bets" that means:
- You should try to refresh that page again later;
- Bot backpacks are being refreshed at that moment;
- You are currently in queue (try later);
- Bots don't have those items (try later or contact me);

Nothing happened when I clicked "Place Bet" or trying get my returns/winnings, Why is that?

This means the bots currently offline. Be patient and try again in a few mins !


Bot only gave me half of my items. Why? What should I do?

Bots only give the items they currently have. You should accept those items.

Go to "my bets" and refresh that page.

Then add another bot that has the rest of your items.

This is caused due to bot backpacks being refreshed every 5 minutes or someone in queue just before you took the same item(s) that you got on returns.


How do I check my previous bets?

Go to: http://dota2lounge.com/myprofile > tab "Bet History"

How long will the bots keep my items?

Bots will keep your items only for 10 days after the match had ended! On the 9th day those items will have a red border on "my bets".


How does betting work?

- Betting is divided into 3 groups of item tiers (common, uncommon, rare). E.g. If you bet a uncommon item, you only stand a chance of winning uncommon items.

- Item splitting is made by an equation for example: You placed 3 uncommon items. All uncommon items that were placed on team that lost were 23. All uncommon items that were placed on team that won were 10. Equation: 3 * 23 / 10 = 6.9 that means you won 6 uncommon items and got a big (90%) chance to win another.

- If no one on the winning/losing side place a bet of same item tier that you placed you won't win/lose. E.g. If you bet a common item, and won, but no one has bet common item on losing team you won't win.

- There is a maximum number of 4 items to bet on each match.

- In case match was a defwin its simply closed.

- Trade only if the Protection Code matches the one given on Dota 2 Lounge [/b]

To all those who placed items and it didn't show in their "my bets" tab, please use the Missing Item Section here: http://steamcommunity.com/groups/dota2lounge/discussions/6/864961175389916008/
