Post Betting only in the USA ... some errors with the bet returns
Basically, a direct reposting of what I posted in the General Discussion forum.

I am just playing the betting side of the game right now, in the USA...please see the image below, and help me decode it.

I looked up the result - the race was a dead heat, so that explains the first bet that I won where I thought I had lost (although the displayed results does not make that apparent), but the amount seems wrong.

High Glider and Wagon Master hit the Exacta, so because I bet the Exacta box, that should pay, shouldn't it?

Barwick finished 3rd. It has been explained to me that in the UK, when only 6 run, there is no "Show (3rd place)" result, only "Win (1st place)" and "Show (2nd place)". So for the UK rules, this is correct, but is this rule carried over to the USA version of the betting module?

Thanks, guys!

Were they a dead heat?

The UI reports them as "placings" in that screen I think, that is why I asked. You need to go back to the form card for the race. Dead heats have been buggy for a bit. Knowing that will help them know if they need to look more at dead heats coding or just the betting code.

And yep, UK bet rules do seem apply to US in the game (also US, also went looking for the win/place/show). On the plus side I learned a thing or two about how the UK bets!

Unsure if we should report that as a bug here, or in the development forum for an expanded feature.

Yes, I mentioned in the original post that the race was a dead heat for first place. Hopefully this gives the guys some insight as to where the problem lies.

My bad, I must have missed that.

Clearly I need more sleep or more coffee!

No problemo! I appreciate the help. And we ALL need more coffee these days.

I am presuming that the people in charge here will read these posts? What is the interaction like, with the powers that be? Are they responsive?

Thanks for checking in!

They do indeed read, and are responsive.

Not a big outfit though, so the patch schedule isn't always regular.
