Facebook cricket betting application

This was an idea from one of the senior students from my college. The app will enable users to create virtual teams from their friends on facebook and place virtual bets on cricket matches in the Indian Premier League. The app also had a admin side to manage teams, announcing results etc. The frontend was totally coded using ExtJS framework. The server side code was fully on PHP. I took around 1 month to work on the entire app, working during my free time. There were features to update the betting odds in realtime based on the progress/score of the match.

More info :
Once the user visits the application through facebook, he will be presented with 2 options.
1. Join an existing team – If any of your friends has created a team using the app, you could choose to join their team. A request will be sent to the captain of that team asking their approval.
2. Create your own team – You can choose to create a team by giveing a name to it and then inviting your friends to join the team later.

After you have made a choice, the page will refresh and a new user interface will be shown. The home page is the Dashboard which will contain widgets showing your current points (called bullets), the top teams with maximum points, the past bets placed by your peers.
Now you can goto the betting page and then look at a list of cricket matches being played at that time. If there is a match being played, you can choose it using the dropdown to get a list of possible bets to place. Once you choose the bet you want to place, you will also be shown the odds for that particular bet which decide the points you will win or lose. When you are placing the bet, you also decide the bullets you are willing to risk for the bet.
Once the bet is placed, the bullets from your team gets deducted and your bet will be shown in the dashboard of every member in your team.
After the match results are published, you will gain or lose the bullets depending on the odds of the bet at the time you placed it.
To gain more bullets you could invite more of your friends to join your team. A team can have a maximum of only 11 players.
After the series is over, the team with the maximum bullets win the grand prize.

Flipkart & Healthcare magic had initially offered to sponsor the app. Flipkart had also offered a 6% discount on every user who visited their website through the app.
