At the Food Club, the object of the game is to place bets on the pirate or pirates that you think will win in an eating competition. You must be wise in your decisions, as there are many factors that need to be taken into account when placing your bet.
There are twenty pirates that compete in each round. Each round consists of five matches with four pirates each, which are held in one of the five arenas.
The Foodclub matches are held once per day at the designated time, run by Harpoon Harry and booked by the Food Club Bookie. The upcoming match's start time can always be found along the top of the main Foodclub page. When placing a bet, you have the option to bet on single or multiple matches. Single matches are straight-forward. If your pirate wins the match, then you win your bet! In order to win on multiple matches, you must correctly choose the winning pirate for each match that you bet on. For example, if you were to place a multiple bet on the matches that are being held at Shipwreck and Lagoon, you must choose the winning pirate for both of those matches in order to win the bet. There are no partial winners for multiple match bets, but your winnings are much higher if you are successful!
Your winnings will be based on the odds for the pirate(s) you have chosen to win. The current odds are next to the pirate's name, although they may fluctuate throughout the day as other players are placing their bets.
To collect your winnings bets, simply go the the Collect Winnings page. REMEMBER: You must collect your winning bets within 7 days of the match, or your winnings may be forfeited!
When you are placing bets, you need to remember that there are many different things to take into consideration. If you are simply using their win/loss record, you are bound to lose a lot of NeoPoints. First thing to do is to take a
look at each pirate in the match. You should do some comparisons between their strength(stamina) and their weights. Also, more importantly, look at the foods that could possibly be served for the match. If you place a bet on a strong pirate, but he happens to be allergic to many of the foods that could be served for his match, you are almost guaranteed to lose!
