I am new to this game and have a basic question about profit
distribution:

If I pay 4 pesos to bet that at least one boat will peach port
it says it pays 6. Now does that if I win I get paid 6 pesos
plus get my original 4 pesos I invested back or does that mean
I get a total of 6 pesos back for a meager profit of 2 peso?

Thanks

Bob

No problem with the typos - you can [Edit] or [Delete] on of the redundant posts if you wish. (Look in the lower right of each for the link)

Your second answer is correct. The black number is the total payout - so betting 1 boat reaches port is a "safe" bet with a low payout of just 6. As you notice, this is a meager 2 peso profit on your bet.
