Flutr TV is a new website where users can bet on the outcome of various video clips. We need a Flash designer/programmer to design an embedded games module for us.
It's going to enable a user to bet points on one of 6 outcomes to a video, watch the video, and then win points (£s) according to whether they've won or not.
Please see Zipped PDF for a better version & pics.
Flutr Tv Games Module
Flutr TV is a new website where users can bet on the outcome of various video clips. We need a Flash designer/programmer to design an embedded games module for us to the below specifications.
In essence, it’s very simple, but also easy to get wrong, so please read the below very carefully, and don’t hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions at all.

Mobile - provided with email on successful bid.
The module must be finished 1 week after acceptance. We have a very strict deadline to meet. If you can’t do it by then, please don’t take the job. Seriously.
We have a reasonable knowledge of Flash programming, and so will be able to go in and change various parameters within the file. We do require the deliverables to be editable, though, as we will be adapting the file to various other games. Things we will need to change include -
Main game video file
Length Of main video file
Which is the winning number
Multiple on each number
Amount in bank
Option Information & vid loops
How It Will Look & Feel
We want the module to blend in with the main website, which will have a white background. It will be well designed laid out, and have a slick, polished feel to it.
The module will measure roughly 600 x 600 px
Please see the wireframe below. This obviously isn’t the final layout - it’s just to give you a general idea of the kind of thing we’re after.
The module will consist of 3 main areas - the Video/Info window, the betting buttons, and the Info/Stats area.
When the page is loaded, the user will see the module, with 6 betting buttons along the bottom, their stats, and introduction info & pics about the game. This will all be contained in the video/info window. Also, an intro video will play. As well as this, we would like the facility to play a music loop over the intro, and sounds on the buttons.
When the player rolls over the buttons, information about each betting option appears in the vid/info window, with a list of amounts they can bet. Also, the stake & amount they stand to win changes in the stats window.
When the player presses a bet amount, the bet and amount to win freezes in the stats window, a ‘Bet Placed!’ sign flashes up, and a video plays in the vid/info window, and the player sees the outcome.
Depending on the outcome, player is told they’ve either won or lost on the vid/info screen, and the amount of money they have in the bank changes in their stats area.
This bit is important, so please read carefully, and get in touch if you have any questions at all.
The module is going to work on the basis of a pooled betting system. As it’s only a demo, we will put the figures for each option in ourselves.
Here is an example. We want to be able to put in each ‘*’ option for each number - we can put this into the Flash file.
Button 1 = *5
Button 2 = *7
Button 3 = *6
Button 4 = *6
Button 5 = *5.5
Button 6 = *7
So - if the player rolls over option 1, and then the ‘£2.50’ button in the info window, his “stand to Win’ option in the stats window will change to (£2.50 * 5) £12.50.
If he clicks on this option, the ‘Stand to Win’ option on the stats window freezes, his
‘Bank’ amount goes down by £2.50, and the ‘Pool’ amount goes up by £2.50.
The Style and Look of the Whole Thing
The look of the whole site is obviously really important. It need to look fun, cool and slick.
We’ve gone around and found a few sites we like:
[url removed, login to view] - great loading animation
[url removed, login to view] - great video window. Nice and clean and simple - and a bit 3d
[url removed, login to view] - click through to the main site. Great fonts and design
[url removed, login to view] - just a great looking site!
[url removed, login to view] - good navigation - like the movement of the words when you roll over the options.
[url removed, login to view] - nice font
Cartoon Network - play games, win prizes and have fun! - great text navigation buttons (cartoon-like)
If you need more examples - ask us!
Thanks & good luck!
