Can put "Selections Variables" in "Amount" ?
« on: Wed, 27 August, 2014, 05:46 »
Can you use a selection variable (e.g. "matching_number") in a formula in "Amount" ?

hi
yes, but the formula must have a number for calculations.
so if you had conditions to bet on the first 3 favourites and had the formula  matching_number*.5
your 3 bets would be 1.50 each bet

Thks mcbee,

If I understand you correctly, then the following should work but...doesn't.

                      5*(matching_number/2)

If my trigger is designed to result in only 1 selection resulting from a matching_number of 3 other conditions, then my formula should allow a single bet amount of 7.0 (5*1.5) on that single selection. But my formula in the Amount does not fire the trigger.

Can u tell me where I've made a mistake ?

Thksalot again, mcbee
