and how does it work?

I heard and read a lot of post before claiming they won in a pool betting especially during the football season.

I think they might be talking about a fantasy betting pool. Or a tipping competition.

The "pool" is the prizemoney pot that is made up of all the entry fees (less the administration fee)

Is this a common thing in all sportsbooks?

I don't think so.

5Dimes used to offer a thing they called "Office Pools" for various sports.

In the NASCAR pool you would have to pick about 5 driver v driver matchups and pay $10 each. If 20 people joined then the winner took the $200 total pool.

5Dimes took no commission for their pools. So not really a profit maker thing many books would be interested in.



Do you know a book that offers them?
