How to Food Club

Background: Food Club is a game of chance located at Krawk Island. Every day at 2pm NST, five different food-eating contests take place simultaneously. Four different pirates compete in each of these contests. Your participation in this game involves betting on the outcome (s) of the five eating contests.

The mechanics: You are permitted to place up to ten bets per day. In each individual bet, you may wager on the outcome of just one contest, several contests, or all five contests. If you place a bet involving more than one contest, every pirate you wager on in that bet must win his contest for you to win that bet.

For example, if you bet 100 NPs that Puffo the Waister in Shipwreck (2:1 odds), and Ol' Stripey in Harpoon Harry's (4:1 odds), will win, then both Puffo and Ol' Stripey must win for you to win that bet. If either Puffo or Ol' Stripey loses, then your bet fails.

While it may seem like bad odds to combine your bets in this way, the advantage to betting on more than one contest at a time is that your odds multiply rather than add up. So in this example, instead of getting 2:1 for Puffo the Waister and 4:1 for Ol' Stripey (200 NPs + 400 NPs, for a total of 600 NPs), you get 2*4 = 8:1 (800 NPs) for correctly betting that Puffo and Ol' Stripey will both win. With the right combination of odds, this can really raise your bank balance fast!

Now that you know how Food Club works, there's a "trick" to consistently making a profit at the game. The key is to place a combination of ten bets of equal amounts wagered that will cover every likely outcome in a few of the contests, with each payout totalling at least 10:1 (a return of 10:1 means you break even... anything above 10:1 is profit). If you're doing it right, most of your bets will necessarily contradict one another, but no matter which of your bets wins, you get at least your NPs back, and typically a profit.

Caveat: Most of us who place and share Food Club bets play the lower odds while generally ignoring the 13:1s. However, 13:1 pirates can, and do, sometimes win. Should this happen, and that pirate wasn't covered, all bets will fail. This shouldn't be the end of your Food Clubbing, though, as it's a relatively rare occurrence. Just jump back in the next day and recoup your losses. Over the long run, you'll see a significant profit.

My overall record as of 10 November, 2012:



Yes, that's 14million. Don't ask me where it's all gone... I'm a broke Neopian.
