The wallet is the portion of the team funds that a captain can bet in a given week.
Each week the team captain is given 50% of the total team funds with which to bet. For example, if there is a balance of 400 in the team fund, the captain that week would have 200 with which to bet.
The amount of money each team member contributes is set when the team is created, the percentage of the team fund that the captain can bet with is set at 50%. To be fair to each team member this cannot be adjust once the game has commenced.
Before a bet can be placed you must first make a suggestion to your team. Once a suggestion has been made it will appear on the team wall and any member of the team can comment on the selection. It is then up to that weeks captain to decided whether to place the bet on behalf of the team.
A suggestion is the recommendation of a bet to be made on behalf of the team. Once a suggestion has been selected and approved by the team captain it becomes a bet.
Suggestions can be made by clicking on the ‘Suggest’ button located under the ‘Quick Links’ tab on the team wall page. Once you press the ‘Suggest’ button you will be brought into the ‘Bet Xplorer’ page. Listed on the left hand panel here is the sports / events available to bet on.. You can also select a bet from the ‘Trending Events’ section located at the top of the page or the ‘Next 24HR Upcoming Events’ section at the bottom. Once you see a bet you like just click on the odds and then select the amount to be wagered. You can also place a comment to let your team know the thinking behind your suggestion..
‘Trending Events’ are upcoming events that other teams have decided are worth a punt.

Yes. By clicking on your name in the tipster leader board you are taken to your tipster page, here you can see all your suggestions and their results (regardless of whether they were selected by the captain).
Your captaincy performance is calculated as the amount of money you returned divided by the amount of money you were given, this gives your captaincy percentage. This is calculated each time one of your results comes in.
Winnings are all based on the decimal odds. Money returned is the amount of money bet multiplied by the decimal odds. Amount of money returned includes the bet stake. Therefore decimal odds are never less than or equal to 1.

When you make a suggestion, you also suggest a virtual amount for that suggestion, each suggestion is considered a virtual bet of this amount, and is calculated in the same way as a bet. The return differs in one small way, in that it only displays the winnings, as there is no stake debited unlike bets.
Just hover your mouse over a select point on the graph and the details will be displayed.
Your tipster stats are how the rest of your team can judge your performance, resetting these are not allowed. But they are tied to your team, therefore if you join another team you start again from scratch.

Within BragBet you have two distinct scores as a Tipster and as a Captain. Now we’re going to explain how scoring for each of these work so you can make sure you’re doing all that you can to stay top of the leaderboard and earn those bragging rights!
Each week the Team Captain has half of the team fund available to bet with in the “Wallet”. When a bet is placed the funds used will be debited from the wallet until the result of the bet comes in. If you backed a winner the wallet will be credited with your winnings and the amount wagered. This new figures will then be available to bet with.
Your performance as Captain is also reflected as a percentage or score. This percentage is adjusted as the bets you place come in, either winning or losing. Each time you’re captain you’ll start out with a score of 100% for that week and this percentage will increase or decrease, along with the wallet, to reflect how you’re doing. Remember that once you’ve placed a bet, like the wallet, your percentage will also drop until the result of the bet comes in.
The ‘Team Captains’ Leaderboard uses this percentage score to rank the performance of each captain. Each time you’re captain your final percent for your week as captain will be taken and averaged out to give you an overall score over time. So don’t worry if you have a bad week, you can always make it up the next captaincy!
Click on any name on the ‘Team Captains’ leaderboard to see how each captain’s scored, their statistics, the events they bet on, and any suggestions they took.
Each time you make a suggestion on BragBet you have the option to wager virtual chips, known as BragBet chips. These virtual chips are separate from to your team funds and are used to keep track of your tipster score. You can wager anywhere from 1 to 10 of these BragBet Chips on each bet you suggest. There is no limit to the amount of suggestions you can make or the number of BragBet chips that you have to wager.
Every time you make a suggestion on BragBet you can show how confident you are by the number of BragBet chips you’d like to place on the bet you’re suggesting. BragBet chips are virtual chips, entirely separate to your team fund, and they allow the captain and other team members to see how confident you are in your suggestions. You can suggest anywhere from 1 to 10 BragBet chips for each bet suggestion.
Your tipster score is calculated based on the number of BragBet chips you suggest and the odds offered. For example if you suggest placing 10 BragBet chips on a bet at odds of 2/1 and it wins, you’ll earn 20 tipster points. However if your bet doesn’t come in you lose 10 tipster points.
You’ll earn or lose tipster points on all your bet suggestions, whether or not the captain chooses to place a bet on your suggestion. So to keep your tipster score high, suggest lots of winning bets, at good odds and be brave in how many BragBet chips you’re willing to wager on your suggestions. There’s no limit on BragBet chips or the number of bet suggestions you can make, so keep the tips coming!
