How To


  • A race will start on a Tuesday (hopefully), and continue on through the week until a

    Smiley has reached the end of the race track. When that happens the race is finished, and

    those who bet on the winning Smiley receive the winnings for that race.
  • Betting will open approximately 48 hours before each race begins. At the moment,

    betting is opened on Sundays.
  • You can bet as much as you like on each race, up to the amount you have in your h2g2 Virtual Bank Account. If you lose all your money from

    your account then your account will be voided and you will have to open a new account to

    continue to bet on the races. See the rules on the h2h2 Virtual Bank page.
  • If your Bank Account is voided, then you cannot re-apply for another account

    at the h2g2 Virtual Bank for two races plus if you own a Smiley in the Racing Stable, you

    will have to give it up.
  • Betting has two concequences;
    1. You will win, thus doubling your original stake. (I.E. Betting 10 DNA's will

      give you a return of 20 DNA's
    2. You will lose your stake money
  • All bets for each weeks races MUST be disclosed before the race begins,

    there will be NO exceptions.
  • Each week there will be a conversation Forum opened to accept bets, please do not

    converse in these forums, these are for the taking of the bets only. No more bets will be

    accepted after the BETTING IS NOW CLOSED message.
  • You may only bet on ONE Smiley per race.
  • This is just a trial at the moment to see how it goes, and to see if it will work, and if its

  • More rules may be added, as and when needed.
