Official Salty Bet site


Twitch channel



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.

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.

You can check past results and the upcoming brackets on challonge

What's 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.

If you want to see the madness SaltyBet can bring check these videos out
Rare Akuma vs Rare Akuma
Alien Queen vs Ronald
Alter Amiba vs Ghetto Warmachine
AAAAAaaaaAAAAAAAAA
P Chunli vs Violent Dan
Ronald vs. The Flash
Thanos vs Ronald


If you need more hype videos you can check out SaltyHighlights which capture some of the more recent hyped matches.

FAQ

What is your advice when betting?
NEVER BET ON DBZ

I lost all my money betting against DBZ! WTF?!
ALWAYS BET ON DBZ

If I bet it all and 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 at least 666+ salty bucks. You can sign up here: http://saltybet.com/illuminati
There are additional perks like stat tracking and W/L records of all characters.

Is there a tier list or characters to look out for?
Yes, PepsimanVsJoe made a list of the people to watch out for and some of their tells to establish real from fake
You can find the list here

Wait, there are real and fake versions?
Yes, there are multiple variants of characters and some even use almost the same sprite, you will need to know the difference by way of intro, color, attire or just plain luck. The difference between real and fake can mean ridiculously good like real Bra which has lots of HP and Power, and fake Bra who is completely worthless.

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

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

Hey, what's the song that is playing?
I'LL TELL YOU WHAT IT'S NOT. IT'S NEVER FUCKING "DARUDE - SANDSTORM"
Never trust the chat


My bet didn't go through!
Either a) refresh the page so the stream is synced up properly. b) Hit the button a couple times. c) bet earlier.

Any other advice?

Always Bet on DBZ
Never Bet on DBZ
Always bet on Touhou
Always Bet on Anime
Always Bet on Card Captor
Always Bet on MSPaint
Always bet on Sailor Moon except Sailor Moon
Always Bet on Hitboxes
Always Bet on Waifu
Never Bet on JoJos



Never go all in unless it's a sure thing and then still don't go all in.
Never bet heavily when you don't know both competitors well.



Special Thanks
Slamtastic for making the original thread and leading us down this hole of debt and salt. SaltyBet, NeoGAF, Twitch for the MUGEN cover art, @JaySilverMusiQ for the awesome top image in the OP and all the people that made these horrible DBZ abominations.

Always bet on the small hit box.

Except when a character has good low attacks. Then never bet on a small hit box.

Unless its one of these weird anime girls that look like they are from one of those creepy dating games and shoot enough projectiles to make the screen look like a bullet hell game. ALWAYS bet on them.

Oh and NEVER bet on a Street Fighter 4 character.

Yea, I forgot to mention that. Plus, I have no idea what the plan is going forward especially there is a significant amount of viewers that don't really care about FGC things what will happen if it covers a FGC event. Doubly the case if said event gets less viewers than the average views during the Dream Cast Casino.

I add something though

Never Bet Dante, he does no damage

I'm still laughing at Dante getting a full Cerberus combo into super that does "fair" damage then Trunks just wakes up with a sword swing for all of Dante's health.

I think the same team worked on some of the bleach and naruto ones, small sprites...

Terrible AI but real good damage if they get some strings going.
