It depends on who you bet on. If you win but bet on someone else to win, you lose. If you bet on yourself and you win therefore you get the bet money.

Cuz u r 2 l33t 2 quit.

 

But seriously, your odds to win are probably much higher than everyone else's, so your return on investment will be lower or negative, since you are actually the most dominant one in the lobby and it wouldn't be "fair" to earn money off of an almost guaranteed win.

I know exactly what it is.  For some reason if even one player leaves the race all bets placed will be lost regardless of who you bet on.  It's just a glitch which has been present for a very long time.

You get the 2.5K back as well. (Unless Rockstar logic has hit a new height [or low])

Wow are you all stupid?

What it says you win is your profit it doesnt include your original stake

So say you bet $2000 and only win $1000 its cause your odds are poor at say 1/2

Sure that's the way it works...but we're dealing with Rockstar here so abandon your reason and logic.

No, there is a glitch in race lobbies which causes all players to lose their bet money even if they bet on themselves and won.  It happens when other players find a new session during a race.  No need to be like that especially when you don't know what the issue is.  I understand odds just fine.

I've had the opposite happen where the winner has lost money I win the bet. You get better odds if you bet small. If you bet 2500 you wont get better than evens whereas if you bet $500 you get much better odds. My biggest win was a $500 bet at 15/1 wasn't winning but connection dip left me alone in the race good times. The car you pick is the biggest factor on the odds you get.

The odds are determined by the total amount bet on each player. The more money is bet on any one player, the lower the odds get for that player. If a smaller amount is also bet on another player, that bet would give much better odds, but the return would be smaller as the bet is smaller.

I think betting is a pile of crap on GTA. 

 

It needs to be 

 

1. Every player puts money into a pot.

2. whoever wins gets it all.

The betting system is completely f*cked, it's been like this for almost 3 patches. DO NOT BET ON ANYTHING, if you have the tattoo great, I got mine early, if not good luck on getting it now. The way they f*cked the betting up, I hope to god the casino stays closed.
