What is SaltyBet?

SaltyBet is a website where you can gamble away your (fictitious) money on fighting game matches. It started off a site to bet on matches from fighting game tournaments like EVO, CEO, UFGT, SCR, NCR and other big FGC events. But is now more known for MUGEN matches where it gained more followers and more $$$. It should cover big events still when they do come up so don't be surprised when you see real life humans instead of tiny DBZ sprites fighting a killer whale.

Official Site:
http://saltybet.com

There are a few variations of SaltyBets going on: Dream Cast Casino, Shaker Classic, and the regular FGC fight bets.

What is the Dream Cast Casino?

It is 24/7 MUGEN CPU matches. Competitors are chosen from a pool of over 1,600+ hilarious broken and poorly rendered characters from all your favorite games, anime and cartoons. And DBZ.

What is the Shaker Classic?

It is an event run every Thursday night around 6 pm (GMT - 7) that is part of a large 256-character tournament. There are 8 pools filled with 32 in each bracket with 1 pool streamed and played out every week. Matches are played on a best of 5, single elimination format. There are no absolute overpowered characters allowed so don't count on Rare Akuma won't be the victor. 

Now, for the more technical stuff:

What is MUGEN?

MUGEN is a fighting game engine and development tool designed to allow amateur hobbyists and those who are more artists than programmers to create fighting games. In most cases, people create individual characters and collect all the characters they can find from other people.

Examples of SaltyBet matches:
Rare Akuma VS Rare Akuma
Alter Amiba VS Ghetto Warmachine
AAAAAAAAaaaaaaaaAAAAAAA
Ronald VS The Flash

FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions:

What is your best advice when betting?
Never Bet on DBZ.

WTF?! I lost all my money betting against DBZ!
Always bet on DBZ.

If I bet and I lose, am I broke?
Everyone has a minimum money pool. You start off at $10 and the more you bet the higher your ranking goes and that increases your betting pool.

Can I get more money?
You can pay to get a higher minimum money pool of 666+ Salty Bucks. 

Is there a tier list or characters to look out for?
Yes, there's a list here, made by PepsimanVSJoe, that shows every character and some of the tells to whether they are real or fake.

Wait, what do you mean real and fake?
There are multiple variants of the same characters and many use the same sprites as others. You're gonna need to be able the difference through intro, color, attire, or just luck. The difference between real and fake can mean ridiculously good chances of betting on the better of the two characters fighting. 

What are the Salt Mines and how do I get out of them?
The Salt Mines are where the poor reside after (not) betting on DBZ and losing all of their money. The best way to get out is to look for upsets, because the economy rules by the 1% odds can be severely hampered where the best you can get is $1 when you pick the favorites. All you can really do is bet on the underdog and hope to win... Of course, don't bet on the underdog if they're going against a MUGEN god like Rare Akuma.

Hey, the chat says...
NEVER TRUST THE CHAT

Hey, what's the song playing on the stream?
I'LL TELL YOU WHAT IT'S NOT. IT'S NEVER FUCKING "Darude - Sandstorm"
Never trust the chat.

A) Refresh the page. B) Hit the button a few times. C) Bet earlier. D) You're not even signed in... 

Any other helpful tips of advice?
Always bet on DBZ
Never bet on DBZ
Always bet on Touhou, unless fighting Lobo.
Always bet on Anime
Always bet on Card Captor
Always bet on MS Paint
Always bet on Sailor Moon, except Sailor Moon
Always bet on Hitboxes
Always bet on Waifus, unless fighting Waifus
NEVER EVER BET ON JoJos
Never go "all-in" unless it's a sure thing, and even then never go "all-in."
Never bet heavily if you don't know both competitors well.

Spoilers?
Aeris is dead.
The Goose is Loose.
Bayonetta is fucking HYPE AS SHIT.
It's fine. 

Thanks to Edgeward and Slamtastic of the NG forums for most info stuph.

I decided to put this here because it's more of a game, rather than a discussion about games... Feel free to move it wherever though.

Oh shit, yeah. Forgot to mention that the site is down at the moment, but you can still watch the Salty Fights to get a feel of how it works.
