Take the Backnine Bookie Tour!

Here's a quick look at the main features of Backnine Bookie.  We think you'll agree that Backnine Bookie is the best golf betting tool available today!

The Main Window

Backnine Bookie takes the drudgery out of running pari-mutuel betting windows at the club. With it’s many features, you can make this year’s tournament the most fun ever! It’s easy to move around from window to window using the main menu, the pull-down menus, or the top toolbar.

Backnine Bookie has a fully functional Help system. Just click the Help button or press F1 to pull up specific instructions on how to use each window in the program.

Backnine Bookie has been prepared especially to handle the needs for golf tournament betting. Save yourself hours of time-consuming manual calculations and let Backnine Bookie do the math for you!

Golf Card Setup

You start out by setting up the "Golf Card".

Use the General Setup tab to tailor the use of Backnine Bookie for your tournament. Here you can decide what information you want to keep about golfers and whether or not to print tickets for bets that are taken.

The Rounds and Flights tab is used to specify how to split up the betting pools. Each new file that you create can handle bets for up to 11 different rounds, plus bets on the overall tournament winner. You can also divide your betting into up to 12 "flights". This allows you to have separate betting on A, B, C and D players, or on score without handicap vs. score with handicap.

With the Betting Defaults and Betting Setup tabs, you can tailor the betting and payouts for each round/flight combination on which you will be taking bets. You decide what the minimum bet and payouts will be, how much will be held back by the "house", which type of bets will be valid, and how winnings will be rounded.

Backnine Bookie handles all of the most popular bet types, including Win, Place, Show, Exacta, and Trifecta bets.  It also handles bets tailored specifically to golfing events, including Consecutive Round bets (where you must pick the winner of up to six consecutive rounds in the same flight), and All Flights bets (where you must pick the winner in each flight for a particular round).

On the Golfer Setup tab, you input the names, numbers, and handicap for each competitor in the tournament.


Bettor Information   

Backnine Bookie lets you keep track of information about each bettor that participates in your betting pool, including his or her name, phone number, e-mail address. Keeping this information is optional. In fact, if you wish to use paper tickets instead, you do not need to track even the name of the bettors.

Other features allow you to save time, such as  by converting all tournament participants into bettors with just a click of the mouse.


The Bet Sheet

Bet sheets can be printed out for each round of the tournament and passed out to the bettors so that they can easily record their bets.  The use of bet sheets is optional, but many clubs find that they help speed up the wagering process.

You can print bet sheets to record Win, Place, and Show bets for each round/flight combination of the tournament.  Plus, you can print an "exotic" bet sheet to record exactas, trifectas, "consecutive round", and "all flights in a round" bets.


Betting Window

The Betting Window is a collection of windows that let you easily cash, collect, or place new bets with ease.

The Transaction Summary window summarizes all of the activity for a bettor during one trip to the betting window. A bettor can place bets on one or more rounds and then cash tickets from completed rounds all in one trip. The totals are summarized and the amount that is finally collected or paid to the bettor is recorded in your Backnine Bookie file.

Bets can be placed randomly or through the use of bet sheets.  In one trip to the betting window, a bettor can place bets on all of the round/flight combinations.  Bets can be placed either with a few clicks of the mouse or, for those who prefer, with the keyboard. Enter the amount of the bet (or click one of the pre-set bet amounts), choose a bet type, and then record the picks.  Special features, such as the  "Across the Board" bet type and the "box" feature for exacta and trifecta bets, save precious time while entering bets.

While working the betting window, you can also "cash" winning tickets with a couple of clicks!  When your betting transaction is finished, Backnine Bookie calculates how much is due or how much should be paid out.  Backnine Bookie does all of the math for you!


Displaying the Odds

After you’ve taken some bets, Backnine Bookie computes the odds for Win, Place, Show, Exacta, and 2 Consecutive Round bets.

Odds can be displayed on one part of the screen in an "auto-run" mode, which keeps the odds updated every few seconds. Watch the odds change almost instantly as you enter new bets!

With Backnine Bookie, while you must use only one computer to input the bets, you can use a computer which is networked to the main computer to display the odds to prospective bettors.

Just like a race track tote board, you can set the odds display to scroll through each type of bet automatically! 

You can also control the size of the lettering so that the odds are legible from whatever distance your patrons are away from the computer monitor!


Enter Results and Calculate the Payouts

When a round or the tournament is over, enter the scores of all of the players or just those of the top finishers, if you prefer.  Within seconds, Backnine Bookie computes the payouts for each type of bet. Payouts are computed using standard pari-mutuel betting formulas, following the parameters that you set up on the "Golf Card Setup" window.

Backnine Bookie allows you to indicate tiebreakers if you'd like, but it will also allow you to let the ties stand.  The payouts are adjusted on ties so that the total of the payouts does not exceed the amount bet on the round or the tournament.


A Full Range of Reports

Backnine Bookie includes a full range of reports, which can be printed as needed to manage your operation.

All of the reports can be printed to paper or saved to a formatted file.  You can also save the report data to a comma-delimited file so that you can import it into your favorite spreadsheet software program.

You have the fun and we'll do the math!
