What's up with that, TwinSpires?
I may be wrong about this...but it seems to me that Twinspires is no longer cutting their video coverage off at the start of the track's last race. For the last couple days, I've actually been able to tune to the day's last race AFTER its start...and I get to see the remainder of the race coverage all the way to the posting of the payoffs. I've seen posters here declare that racing "insiders" visit and read what we write here...but I must admit that I never really believed that. Now I do.

With the recent retirement of our most renowned horseplayer-representatives out there...you might be one of the last independent "movers-and-shakers" left in this game.

Also, it seems the video quality is a little better on the TwinSpires Express (old YouBet) interface. Thank you.

Feedback

It may not seem like it all the time, but I think there are a bunch of us that follow up on feedback where we can, both here and via website feedback.

In this case it is not TwinSpires cutting the video off, but rather our provider. It may happen from time to time from our provider, but if you consistently see a particular track getting cut off prior to the feed replays keep hammering us and we'll follow up with them to see if they can extend the time.

We want you to have as good of an experience as possible!

When exactly can I expect to be able to upload draft wagers again? It has been what a couple of months now. Why is it disabled anyhow? I spent a lot of time programming spreadsheets so I can input pick 4's and pick 5's and pick 6' quickly and your company has just removed the option. Any particular reason why?

Same on my end, had to move my play to Xpressbet, T/S screwed the pooch when they bought out YouBet, which was a far better platform than anything T/S has now! batch wagering was much more user friendly, most other sites that offer conditional and batch wagering don't have the issues T/S has been experiencing, maybe some new hires are in order?
Twinspires does not seem to care if I stay or if I go bye bye Twinspires

Draft Wagers

Apologies for the trouble - the developers have it in the queue to fix but I don't know the timing.

It was not disabled as a management decision. There are so many moving parts to all these interfaces and sometimes an upgrade/update affects another part of the website.

I will forward the comments upward....

I haven't used the batch in a while but I know what it is.


It's a simple text file. Nothing can be broken in uploading a text file that can't be fixed in a day.



If there's something wrong with the back end processing, then that's an other issue.



Nothing that was working for years should take months to fix unless there's ineptness or some political reason .

Draft Wagers

The simple text upload is not the issue. It is as I described, the back-end code and nothing political about it.

There is no reason we wouldn't want to accept wagers.

Know that you always have to +1 on the odds if using decimal odds. I found this out the hard way.

Meaning, if your minimum odds are 3-1, you would put a 4 in the Pricing Condition box when using decimal odds.

It's easier to use fractional odds I guess but at the time I was using conditional betting (I don't any longer thanks to all the late odds changes), I liked to set my cutoff in a more precise manner by using decimal odds.
PA....

Still cant find "CONDITION" Option...

What you posted doesn't look like AmWager...not even a little bit.

What site is that?

How complicated can it be to convert the betting instructions into a wager?


It worked for years, and it's not rocket science.



Can't imagine something like this taking months , even if it had low priority. Must be NO priority.



Are you familiar with the real reason for the fail, or are you taking the word of the programmers who claim its 'a massive undertaking'


I've never had a programming problem that I couldn't get fixed in a day or two.


PS I suspect if this was code needed for a whale batch betting operation , there would be ZERO downtime. Just a wild guess.
