    CentSports

    For those of you who long to bet on games but don't have the money to lose, try this site out:

    http://www.centsports.com/?opcode=226041

    They give you a dime to bet on games. When you lose your dime they give you another one, and another one, etc... Currently I'm 0-5, which just reinforces why I shouldn't bet on games. The best part though is that you get to keep your winnings. Also, the fact that it is legal, since you are not gambiling. (Canadians need not worry, its already legal)

    That's a really cool idea. I'm surprised it hasn't generated more buzz dude. Thanks for providing the link.

    Isn't there another one that does something similar? It's advertized on TGOR all the time. They "bankroll" you wo you don't actually lose any money, and you can win a share of the $1000 weekly prize (from memory).

    I just can't remember the name.

    Nice Pragman,

    If you figure it out feel free to post the link in here. I'm not much of a gambler but I'd be willing to check those sites out from time to time :D

    that sounds awesome!

    I just signed up for a poker site that does the exact same thing. They 'bankroll' you and you can keep your winnings. It's awesome! Smile

    How do these sites make money? Is it simply due to the amount of traffic the site gets so the Ads they have earn them enough money or what? I'm curious to know how they make money off of things like this. Oh and Cronie - Stop matching me post for post. How am I supposed to catch you on the top poster list? LOL.

    I'll write down the link. I can't get on GMHockey at home. (password errors, even though I know my password, and even did a "forgot-my-password", no dice).

    I played some of that on the road-trip this weekend.

    Is it just me, or are the patties at McDonalds the size of a post-it note and just as thin these days?

    That is bizarre dude. Try gmcentralhockey.forumotion.net. It's worth a try anyway. It's the old forum address.

    Lets just hope they don't find a way to block our site dude. Imagine the drop off in posting if that happened!!

    KNOCK ON WOOD BIG TIME!!
