    Hey Bob, excuse my Monday moment, but how do I prevent a member from betting on more than one outcome?

    For example, have college football book

    Texas A&M v South Carolina

    Bet on SC, but can also bet on Texas, only want a user to be able to bet on one outcome....

    You can't. Limitations are based on each individual outcome. There are not any "event" type wagering restrictions beyond being able to place wagers. Im not opposed to adding in Event limitations, so if you need this, feel free to request it in the suggestions.

    Would like to see Event limitations added where you can choose whether multiple wagers are permitted for an outcome in an event:


    College Football Event

    Texas A&M
    South Carolina

    A setting where the creator of the event can decide whether or not a user can bet on one or multiple outcomes.

    no funding necessary, will be fairly easy to implement within the existing architecture.

    This has been implemented and will be available in the next release

    couple screen shots.

    This is a PER Event setting (default is disabled). The viewing user MUST have permission to create outcomes on the event, or they won't be able to set this option. Also, this can only be set when the event status is Pending, Open or Closed.

    When this option is enabled and a user has placed a wager on an outcome, all the other outcomes will become "Limited" and will display this message.


    NOTE: Outcome limitations still apply to the single outcome that the user can place wagers on!

    I've added a note in the event description area informing users that the event is limited to placing wagers on single outcomes only when this option is enabled. This note is only displayed when the event is OPEN.

    BTW, if you want this to work correctly, you need to enable this option PRIOR to anyone placing wagers. If you allow people to place wagers on multiple outcomes and then enable this to force only wagering on a single outcome, those that have already placed wagers on more than one outcome can continue to placing wagers on those particular outcomes, but NOT on ones that they have not yet placed wagers on. So be careful on how you use this functionality.
