Subj: The Wakabidrome Racetrack Reopens!

Once again, the Wakabidrome Racetracks are open for business! For every
ten credits you purchase in the month of February, you'll receive a
single betting ticket. You can then head over to the Wakabidrome race
track in the Kiakodan Nature Reserve and bet on a race. (It's also now a
LANDMARK.) Betting will open for the next race every hour at 20 minutes
past, and close at 55 minutes past. When the hour changes, the race will
begin!

Here is an overview of commands:

RACETRACK TICKETS
-----------------
View how many tickets you have available for betting.

RACETRACK LIST
--------------
View the current wakabi available to bet on, their jockeys, and their
odds to Win (come 1st), Place (come 2nd or higher) or Show (come 3rd or
higher). It will also show you the return per ticket for betting on that
wakabi. If the race has already ended, it will tell you the final
placings.

RACETRACK VIEW
--------------
Only usable if the wakabi are racing, this will display the current
positions of each wakabi in the race.


RACETRACK BETS
--------------
An overview of your current bets for this race.

RACETRACK BET <amount> TICKETS ON <colour> TO <WIN|PLACE|SHOW>
--------------------------------------------------------------
Place a bet on a wakabi to win, place or show.

Winning means that the wakabi will come in exactly first place. Placing
means that the wakabi will come in second place, or better. Showing
means that the wakabi will come in third place, or better. Betting ends
when the races start!

The RACETRACK LIST command will show the odds each wakabi has of
winning, placing or showing, as well as the credit return per ticket for
betting on that wakabi.

Good luck!
