Try risking to win $125 at -110. Risk should be $137.50. But the software turns that into $138 to win $125. 

 

OK, decimal points are really tricky, so they round up. 

 

Try risking $125 at +110. Payout should be $137.50. But the software turns that into $125 to win $137. 

 

Oh, now they round down? 

 

Now of course this is just pocket change, but when you can't even bet more than a nickel on an NFL side, this is probably a good chunk of their revenue.

Any guess what they actually take in with this?  Actual question not smart remark.

It's always been like that.  Boat (and the books) blame the software.  "Can't be changed'   "Can't afford to hire a programmer and pay him for the up to 3 1/2 minutes it would take to fix it"

That is pretty shitty that they round against you both ways, on the favorite or the dog.  I would just make my wagers $120 or $130 and not $125.

Cant blame the software when it rounds against the player in all scenarios.  I could see if it always rounded up or always rounded down...but to always round against the player, the software was definitely designed to do exactly that.

They make a grip doing this I'm sure but not nearly as much as Vegas does since they've gone to tickets instead of cash payouts at slots.....bet they make over a million dollars from people tossing 47cent tickets in the trash

They just changed their software (made it worse), but could not go into the code and find the two lines of code that say

 

if benefits us, round up

if benefits player, round down 

 

to just

 

round up (or down)

Pretty sure they do it on horse racing payouts as well. Wouldn't bother me as much but like RM pointed out, they round up or down in their favor. To blame it on software is a weak excuse.

I dont have an acct there but someone who does, try to bet $121 on a -110.  The juice would be $12.10.  Will they still round up and make it $134/$121?
