Have you guys heard of Salty Bet? For the uninitiated, it's a live stream where you watch a video feed of randomly selected CPU-controlled characters fighting each other in MUGEN. The guy running the show has over 2,000 characters installed, everybody from Ronald McDonald to Akuma to Goku to Barney to Colonel Sanders to...well, you get the point. Watching random characters endlessly fight each other is a neat novelty, but there's something else that makes it incredibly fun: you get to bet on the outcome of the match. The currency you're betting (Salty Bucks) is fictional, of course, but nonetheless, it's thrilling to bet everything you've got on an underdog, see him win against all odds, and rake in tons of cash. There's a surprising amount of skill involved. You have to learn which characters are good, which characters suck, who can glitch their opponents, who is too tall to hit a short character, who is vulnerable to rushdown, who has a one-hit-kill move, etc. There are so many factors to consider when placing your bet. It makes the matches that much more intense. Honestly, I think that Salty Bet might be the future of video game streams. Not that gambling or betting on competitors is a new invention, but interacting with a video game stream is incredibly fun. You don't just sit there and passively watch; you have an actual stake in what's going on, and you either win or lose based on what choice you made - sounds an awful lot like playing a video game! This makes the stream far more enjoyable than any other game stream I've partaken in. I think that every stream should have an interactive element of some kind! I'm hopelessly addicted to Salty Bet. On four separate occasions, I've stayed up for over 24 hours straight, watching and betting. According to the little emblem next to my username, I've bet on over 4,000 matches. At one point, I had $70,000 Salty Bucks! But even that is pocket change to the high rollers... So, anyone here watch Salty Bet? Have any exciting stories to tell? Any good betting strategies to share? After landing in the salt mines way too many times, I think it might be time to change my tactics. Let me know how many Salty Bucks you've been able to earn, and how you decide who to bet for!
